Long Island Wine Country invites you to the 50th Anniversary Grand Celebration at 5pm on August 19th at Peconic Bay Vineyards.


This event celebrates the founding of the Long Island wine region when Louisa and Alex Hargrave planted the first wine grapes in 1973. In attendance will be Louisa herself along with other pioneers of our industry including many of the winemakers who have dedicated their entire careers creating the wines that you have come to love. All that is needed to complete the celebration is you, without whom our region would have never reached this milestone.


Enjoy wines from 35 Long Island Wineries along with delectable bites from 20 local top culinary talents. Celebrate Long Island Winery Country as you taste the diversity of wines styles and the foods grown and produced on both the North and South Forks at this one of a kind event with wines grouped by style and paired with complimentary local dishes! Whether it is traditional methode champenoise sparkling wine or pet-nat, white wines that display “maritime minerality” or a rare red library wine selection from our best vintages, there will be dishes created specifically for each wine style to showcase the best Long Island has to offer.
