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.

  • Hand down the best wine I've tasted since I visited France. As good as the best California red wines. I was amazed and surprised. Ya gotta go!  more »
  • I love it here. I went here as part of a wine tour. Sandwiches were on point, unlimited eat: sandwiches and wine.
  • Last Saturday my wife and I took a ride out east for the day and dropped in on their wine tour and barrel tasting. What a fantastic experience! We had some time to spend with others before the tour started doing some tastings and the entire staff was friendly and very accommodating. Our tour guide was Jim, and he was a complete delight. Funny, witty, and knowledgeable without being overly scientific or technical. It was great to get a peek at behind the scenes. The tour wraps up with several more tastings and a light lunch. My wife and I really enjoyed it ... kudos to Jim and the entire Pindar team. Hope to be back soon.
