A three-generation family-run winery, Macari Vineyards has tasting rooms in both Mattituck and Cutchogue.

Ceramic artist Chris Fanjul, 39, specializes in just such pieces — including bowls, mugs, plates sculptures and more — all of which are anything but ordinary. Fanjul, who creates his comely yet functional pieces at his Mattituck home studio, contends that ceramics is as much of a form of creative communication as any traditional art.
