Sam, a World War 2 veteran, started this vineyard, farm, and horse rescue with the help of his wife, Rhoda when they moved to Suffolk County in 1961. They settled down and found a beautiful parcel of land on the North Fork where they started a farm. A few years later, Sam became interested in vineyards and tried his hand at planting a small section of grapevines. After several years of nurturing the soil and vines, Baiting Hollow established themselves as a grower of distinction, producing many varieties of high-quality wine. Last year, they took home three Finger Lakes International Wine Competition medals.
Born from a passion for craft beer, Moustache Brewing Co. is a microbrewery and tasting room located right here in Riverhead, NY. The beers are constantly changing to highlight fresh locally-grown ingredients and maintain their innovative homebrew spirit. Their flagship beer, the Sailor Mouth IPA is a bright, juicy, citrusy American IPA that has been dry hopped not once, but twice with amarillo and comet hops. Their Everyman’s Porter, another popular beer, is a light-bodied, lower alcohol porter with a roasted coffee aroma that carries into the flavor and notes of dark, bittersweet chocolate. See what else is on tap here.
Long Island Spirits, founded in 2007, is the first craft distillery since the 1800s located on Long Island in Baiting Hollow, NY. The distillery is home of LiV Vodka and is surrounded by 5,000 acres of potato farms which make LiV Vodka a farm-to-bottle, hand-craft distiller operation. After sourcing the potatoes, artisan distillers mash and ferment them before distilling them three times over. We’ll raise a glass to that!
