Wolffer Estate Vineyard
The Wolffer Estate Vineyard is a majestic 55-acre vineyard in Sagaponack that dazzles with a flare of European character. Complete with a Grand Prix field, the Estate Vineyard hosts a number of not-to-be missed events throughout the summer perfect for those hot days and perfect evenings. Besides regular events like yoga in the vines and candlelight wine tastings every Friday night, the Vineyard also hosts an array of special celebrations. For instance, the Long Island Merlot Alliance Wine Release Dinner & Scholarship Fundraiser event on June 17 features a multi-course wine-paired dinner from executive chef Marco Pellegrini. And on July 17, the James Beard Foundation’s Chefs & Champagne event at the Vineyard brings together honoree and James Beard Award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson for this annual swanky Hamptons fundraiser and tasting party. Along with Wolffer Estate wines, more than 40 fine chefs will also be on hand to whip up savory bites. To learn more about these fabulous events at the Vineyard, visit wolffer.com.
