Create an itinerary including Pindar Vineyards
At Pindar Vineyards, our award-winning wines are quite literally dreams come true. It was the dream of our founder, Dr. Herodotus “Dan” Damianos, that helped create the winemaking industry on Long Island in the early 1980’s. And that dream has, over nearly 30 years, turned Pindar Vineyards into Long Island’s best-known wine producer.

Today Pindar Vineyards encompasses more than 500 scenic acres. We grow 17 varieties of grapes, crafting them into some 23 varietals and proprietary blends. We produce 70,000 cases of wine a year, making us the largest vineyard on Long Island. But at heart we are still a family with a personal touch in every aspect of our business.

Pindar Vineyards is a labor of love for Dr. Dan and his family. Dr. Dan’s wife of over 40 years, Barbara, is an invaluable member of the business, spearheading charity efforts, working in the tasting room, and helping promote the wines to restaurants and other venues across Long Island. The three Damianos sons are respected winemakers in their own right: Alexander is owner and general manager Duck Walk Vineyards, Jason has launched his own vineyard, Jason’s Vineyard, and Pindar is Director of Vineyard Management at the winery that shares his name. Dr. Dan’s daughters, too, are actively involved in making Pindar Vineyards what it is today: Alethea is a key administrator in the business office and also works in the tasting rooms, while Eurydice promotes branding initiatives in her hometown -- New York City -- while maintaining her own medical practice.

Accompanied by his wife and children, Dr. Dan continues to dream, constantly striving to make Pindar Vineyards wines unique and unrivaled in their quality. We invite you to share the dream by enjoying a glass of our wine.

You can find our flagship winery on the North Fork of Long Island – in Peconic. Also, please join us at our Port Jefferson location, where we have a full tasting bar and wine shop.

  • Shout out to Alethea for helping us pick out an amazing bottle of wine to enjoy on the beautiful outdoor pavilion which had great live music. And also helping us decide on another bottle to take home! Alethea is an amazing person with amazing energy! Loved meeting her. It made my day!
  • Great place to sit among green vineyards and enjoy a bottle of chilled wine. The atmosphere is young and lively and the wine selection is very impressive. The ones we tasted were nice, but not fine enough. Worth coming here for atmosphere and view. Anyway after two glasses all the wines have the same taste.
  • Pindar has always been one of my favorite vineyards in North Fork and after all these years this still rings true. Our server was very helpful and friendly. My wife and I really enjoyed our tasting but the standouts for us were the 2015 Cab Port and the 2020 Riesling. Really great tasting wines! I look forward to my next visit.
  • We have been coming to Pindar for several years now and each time out we LOVE the experience. We've brought friends and family, and they all agree that it's a fantastic experience. Atmosphere, service and of course, the wine. We enjoyed the wonderful Paris Ray and plan to come back in August to see her again.
  • A must go vineyard on long island espically in the summer as they're know for the sunflowers 🌻 tastings are a great value and phenomenal selection. They also offer many different types of cheeses and crackers. They offer great views for pictures or just to take it all in! Staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
