In 1978, The Entenmann Family agree to sell their family company and move on to greener pastures. One of Martha Clara’s sons, Robert Entenmann, purchased a potato farm and transformed it into a thoroughbred horse farm on the North Fork of Long Island. Throughout the years he enjoyed his horses and the beauty of the area. However, he couldn’t help but notice the changing landscape all around him. The neighboring potato farms began to give way to vineyards; it was just a matter of time before he would follow suit.Plan to see Martha Clara Vineyards and other attractions that appeal to you using our Riverhead road trip planning website .
In 1995, Robert caught the grape bug and planted 18 acres of vitis vinifera grapes. Over the next four years his vineyard acreage grew to over 100 acres as he anxiously waited for the grapes to come to age.
Robert Entenmann, owner of Martha Clara Vineyards, named the venture after his mother, Martha Clara Entenmann.
Martha Clara Vineyards Reviews
I got married at RGNY this past labor day weekend. When we started the wedding planning process it was with the Martha Clara owners. I was nervous that they were changing ownership in the middle of our wedding planning. That being said, I cannot say enough good things about RGNY and their staff. The events Manager Erin was so friendly and helpful. Anything and everything we wanted for this wedding she made happen with a smile on her face. Very personable and professional. The "Barn" (hall) where we got married was gorgeous. They even brought their two horses out into the paddock during the ceremony, and brought bags of carrots for our guests to interact with and feed them. From top to bottom RGNY was excellent throughout the entire process. Thank you for the perfect wedding venue!
Love the revamped version of this vineyard! The new wines are delicious and the ambiance is super friendly and relaxed... service was on point and the food choices paired wonderfully with the wines. Bravo! and highly recommend visiting RGNY! Especially loved watching kiddos play around in the grounds and walking the property. Over all a very enjoyable experience and will certainly be back!
