Wine Spectator Award

For the 12th consecutive year, under the aegis of wine director Michael Cohen, The 1770 House in East Hampton received a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.

The award recognizes wine lists that feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers along with a thematic match to the New American menu by Chef Michael Rozzi in both price and style.

Cohen, certified by the Sommeliers Society of America, oversees The 1770 House’s 250-label list and inventory of 2500 bottles. The carefully selected wine list includes vertical vintages of California’s premier labels such as Opus One and Peter Michael. Other highlights include prime vintage top growth Bordeaux as well as an extensive selection from Italy’s Angelo Gaja. Offerings by the glass span the New and Old World, along with local Long Island selections.
