Onabay Vineyards

I can’t speak to the quality of the wines produced by Onabay Vineyards, but the owners of this Long Island vineyard are clearly attuned to the land. They describe the 18-year-old vineyard thusly:
Today, the property encompassing the vineyard consists of over 180 acres of fertile fields, meadows, and forests as well as over a mile of bay and creek frontage. It is a wondrous, peaceable kingdom of great horned owls, deer, osprey, herons, and shorebirds. Striped bass, bluefish, and flounder abound in the tidal creeks and the deeper bay.
I was drawn to the artistic avian labels that grace the bottles of wine produced by Onabay. All three labels are illustrated here.

Yeah, I think they're among the coolest wine labels featuring birds that I've run across.
