“This is definitely the largest assembly of restaurants vineyards breweries spirits seltzers in 2022 on the East End,” said Steven McKenna, VP of Sales and Events for Times Review Media Group. “Sort of saving the best for last, or the end of summer. This will be an event that continues on for many years.”

Partial proceeds from the event will benefit Eastern Long Island Hospital Foundation, as well as funding the forthcoming Ann Marie & Marco Borghese scholarship fund, which will go to area high school students.
