• Peconic Bay opening NY-only wine store

01 Oct

RIVERHEAD, Long Island — Here’s an update on an earlier report. An October 21 opening date has been set for Peconic Bay Winery’s retail store at the Tanger Outlets here.

The store, named Empire State Cellars, is a 3,000-square-foot merchant store and tasting room. In addition to wines from Peconic Bay, the stock will include about 15,000 bottles from about 200 other New York wineries.

Peconic Bay Winery is one of the few North Fork vineyards to open a second location, a move allowed under state agricultural law that allows wineries to have up to five satellite locations. Pindar Vineyards opened a second tasting room and retail store in Port Jefferson, called Pindar Wine Shop, about 25 years ago.

Tastings will be offered daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Tanger Outlets are located at 200 Tanger Mall Drive, just off Main Street (Route 25).
