A proud Pittsburgh, PA native, Lenn moved to Long Island nearly a decade ago and promptly fell in love with the region's dynamic and emerging wine industry. An Internet marketing guru by profession, he founded LENNDEVOURS.com, his wine blog, in early 2004 to share his passion for the wines of New York with his readers. It has since grown into the premier source for New York wine commentary, tasting notes and news.

Formerly the editor of the Long Island Wine Gazette and contributor to Edible Brooklyn, he serves as the wine columnist for Edible East End, Hamptons.com and Dan's Papers in the Hamptons. He is also a regional editor for Appellation America covering the Long Island and Hudson River Valley regions. He lives in Sound Beach, NY with his wife Nena, son Jackson and trusty beagle, Ben Roethlisbeagle.

We don't currently have a liquor license. So any wine would have to covered under a winery's off premises license. But, I am certainly interested in hosting a private, wine tasting dinner. This may become more difficult as we head into the spring and summer.

Your son has not been the first person (some quite older) to topple a table in LLK. The bases are not as stable as I would like. The tops, by the way, are planks from 19th century barns.

Thank you for the nice review you gave to my restaurant, Love Lane Kitchen. I am sorry that not everything was up to par. We strive for perfection but may fall short sometimes. I hope that you will give us an opportunity to redeem ourselves.
