And wine that bled out on cellar floors will make up a hefty chunk of the lost revenue. The valley’s more than 500 wineries generate some $13 billion a year for the regional economy, according to Napa Valley Vintners , a trade organization.

Stonecrop Wines, a small New Zealand vineyard owned by Sally Richardson and Andrew Harris of Montauk, recently released its first pinot noir rosé. The vineyard also produces sauvignon blanc and pinot noir, both of which can be found in restaurants and wine stores around the East End.

The couple hand-planted pinot noir and sauvignon blanc vines in 2003 and released their first vintage in 2006. Each April, they make the trip from Montauk to New Zealand to help handpick the grapes, often bringing friends along to help. Alexis Moore is the winemaker, and a viticulturist oversees the vineyard on a day-to-day basis.
