The Old Field Vineyards, North Fork’s easternmost vineyard and winery, is situated on the Peconic Bay. Established in 1974, The Old Field Vineyards is Long Island’s oldest continuously run vineyard by the same family.
Christian and Rosamond Baiz with their daughter Perry Weiss, have thoughtfully developed their vineyard and wines to be a model of “sustainable” agriculture. They grow and produce both Burgundian and Bordeaux winegrapes and wines, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Under daughter Perry’s direction, The Old Field Vineyards has also added Sauvignon Blanc to their winegrape portfolio.
The Old Field grounds are steeped in regional heritage. It was farmed by Native Americans for nearly two thousand years prior to the arrival of the “first settlers” from Europe in 1640. Since 1918, Christian Baiz’s maternal ancestors continued to farm The Old Field.
At the advent of vinifera wine growing on Long Island, Christian led The Old Field’s redirection from the Long Island potato to the new agricultural paradigm of Long Island wines. Today, Ros, Perry, and Chris enjoy welcoming wine seekers to The Old Field for its wines, its pastoral and maritime beauty, and feathered barnyard entertainment.
A visit is worth ten thousand words of enjoyment.
