7 Kid-Friendly Wineries on Long Island

7 Kid-Friendly Wineries on Long Island

These wineries offer so much more to the family than just drinking wine.


One of the perks of living on Long Island is that we have our very own wine country located out on the East End. Even better: While adults can sip and sample a variety of delicious wines, kids are also welcome to come along to play outside, listen to live music and enjoy some snacks. And in most cases, dogs can come, too! Here are seven Long Island wineries families should check out this summer.

1. Harbes Family Farm & Vineyard

Reopening Mother’s Day weekend

715 Sound Ave., Mattituck
631-482-7641

Harbes boasts an 8-acre barnyard adventure zone with a giant playground and obstacle course, as well as a petting zoo, musical hayride tour, and a host of other activities. During the summer, families can enjoy kid-friendly concerts, while in the fall, there’s apple-picking, a pumpkin patch, and a corn maze. Keep in mind that you are required to order food when purchasing wine.

 

2. RGNY Vineyards

6025 Sound Ave., Riverhead
631-298-0075

The Rivero Gonzalez Family, which hails from Mexico, bought Martha Clara Vineyards in 2018, and opened its doors as RGNY in 2019. Like its previous owner, the vineyard is family-friendly, with children and leashed dogs allowed on the premises. No outside food is permitted.

 

3. Osprey's Dominion

44075 Main Road, Peconic
631-765-6188

Guests can bring their own food and eat outside at the picnic tables, although if it is especially crowded there is a time limit of 90 minutes. Children are not allowed inside the tasting room. There is live music most weekends, and the Gazebo Bar and Beer Garden are both open on the weekends.

4. Palmer Vineyards

5120 Sound Ave., Riverhead
631-722-9463

Parents are welcome to bring their kids as long as they are closely supervised, while dogs can stay outside on a leash. No outside coolers, food, or beverages are permitted, and reservations are required for groups of 8 or more.



5. Pindar Vineyards

37645 Main Road (Route 25), Peconic
631-734-620
FacebookInstagram
This 500-acre family-friendly vineyard—the largest on Long Island—allows guests to bring their own blankets and beach chairs, where they can enjoy a picnic and the live music on the weekends. Of course, no outside alcohol is allowed on the premises.

6. Pugliese Vineyards

34515 Main Road, Cutchogue
631-734-4057
FacebookInstagram
Family-owned and operated, Pugliese Vineyards is known as “The Winery in the Hollow.” The vineyard features outdoor seating near a lake with a fountain, as well as a spacious tasting room. Families are able to bring in snacks, although the vineyard does sell food.

 

7. Jamesport Vineyards

1216 Main Road, Route 25, Jamesport
631-722-5256
FacebookInstagram
While children are welcome on weekdays, Jamesport is strictly 21 and over on Saturdays and Sundays. During the week, kids can play outside and are not permitted in the tasting room. No outside food is allowed, but the on-site restaurant, Little Oak Wood Fired Kitchen, is open Thursday-Sunday, while cheeses and charcuterie are served Monday-Wednesday. Only certified service dogs are allowed on the premises.
