Here is a winery the ambitious could actually walk to from Shorecrest!

Owner Claudia Purita, grew up on her family’s farm in Calabria, Italy, Claudia assisted in growing vegetables and wine grapes and raising small animals from very young age. At her father, Domenico’s, side she learned to value the land and the fruits that it provides. Much of the vineyard was hand planted and each vine has been meticulously tended to by Claudia’s exacting touch. The superiority of her work is evident in each of the wines made from the vineyard. A few sips will lead you to appreciate just what one woman’s hard work can produce.

Old Field Vineyards- 2.8 miles

59600 Main Road (Route 25)  Southold NY


On the east end of Southold village, “The Old Field” was referenced in Southold records as early as 1660.  Native Americans farmed the field for hundreds of years, until European settlers arrived in 1640 and bartered with the natives for use of The Old Field.

In 1974, during the advent of vinifera grapevine plantings, after over 400 years of traditional agriculture, the first vineyard was plantedin The Old Field.  Christian Baiz, a member of the fourth generation of his family to farm these lands, led the Old Field’s transformation.

In 1996 Christian and his wife Rosamond Phelps, purchased the Old Field from his family.  They planted Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Pinot Noir winegrapes.  From these grapes, today Ros and Chris, along with their grown children, Perry and Ryan – the fifth generation to work the land- are crafting premium red, white, and sparkling wines.  The Old Field has the only mother daughter winery/vineyard team on Long Island.
