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.Plan to visit Pindar Vineyards and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Peconic attractions using our Peconic trip planner.
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.

Abagail ( so sorry if I spelt it wrong girl) was amazing, sweet, and beautiful! The whole experience was one of a kind - service was exquisite ! I can’t stress enough everyone was beyond kind and helpful! Andrew, however, stole the show - he right away asked us how we were (didn’t even know he was associated with the place) we was combing a woman’s hair lol so cute ! We will def be returning! Thank you Pindar vineyards! Beautiful atmosphere!!!! &&& delicious wine!
What a great place. I travel all over the country for work and hit wineries all over, and this winery was really worth it. The wines I tried aren't super pretentious; they're drinkable. Summer wines, pool wines. I didn't try the heaver reds, so maybe they excel there as well. These were wines my friends and family will want to drink with me. And so I took a lot home!
