Event description
The future of wineries on the North Fork

About this Event

For more than 45 years, vineyards and wineries have dotted the North Fork landscape and helped make the region a destination for visitors. Today, there are more than three dozen wineries across Southold and Riverhead Towns. They are a major source of employment and an economic boon for the area. But wineries are also at a bit of a crossroads. Multiple tasting rooms have dealt with zoning issues and concerns over food trucks and limousines have made headlines in recent years as wineries continue to grapple with their growth in popularity and shape their identity. So what does the future look like for wineries on the North Fork? We’ll aim to find out.

Times Review Talks are two-hour monthly lunchtime panel discussions mostly on issues our communities are facing with the people who best understand the concerns and, in some cases, are in a position to make a difference. Future talks are expected to cover the topics of climate change, opioids, school enrollment, ticks and more.

This panel will be moderated by Times Review Media Group digital content director Grant Parpan, we’ve invited members of the business community and local government to discuss the issue.

Panelists include: Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell, Riverhead Town Supervisor Laura Jens-Smith, Long Island Wine Council president Anthony Sannino, and winemakers Rich Olsen-Harbich and Kareem Massoud, and more.

Tickets are required.
