The North Fork’s longtime bastion of local wineries, Pindar Vineyards is considering selling it’s vineyard and Duck Walk vineyards, if someone will pay $65 million, according to a report in Newsday.
Though not by name, Pindar is listed on commercial real estate site Loopnet.com as “the largest vineyard on the North Fork of Long Island.” The listing has no price, but notes that the company’s holdings for sale include, four fully operational vineyards/wineries—Pindar in Peconic and Port Jefferson and Duck Walk in Water Mill and Southold. These wineries can be purchased as a package or as individual sales, according to Newsday.
Founded by Dr. Herodotus “Dan” Damianos more than 30 years ago, Pindar Vineyards encompasses more than 500 acres and grows 17 varieties of grapes, which go into 23 varietals and proprietary blends, according to their website. The winery produces 70,000 cases of wine a year, making it the largest vineyard on Long Island. Despite this, it remains a family business.
