Situated in Cutchogue on Long Island’s picturesque North Fork, the historic estate vineyard owned by the late film executive Michael Lynne (“Lord of the Rings” trilogy) who was a key figure at New Line Cinema as well as a wine connoisseur is seeking a new owner. Asking $17.9 million, the 95-acre property includes a cottage and five parcels of land. The property is home to Bedell Cellars, a pioneering family-owned winery. Also included in the sale is the Corey Creek Vineyards winery.

Bedell is known for its small-batch wines produced locally for 35 years using methods unique to the maritime region. The estate-grown wines produced here have achieved critical acclaim and awards. The property consists of the 50-acre Bedell vineyards and winery including a tasting room, production facilities, an equipment barn, and four acres of undeveloped residential land.
