Duck Walk North Opens

DUCK WALK NORTH is the latest addition to the Long Island wine empire of Dr. Dan Damianos and his family, by far the largest winegrowers in New York ’s easternmost wine region. “Dr. Dan” created Pindar vineyards on the North Fork more than two decades ago, followed by Duck Walk in Southampton (now known as Duck Walk South) and Jason’s Vineyard (named after son Jason, the winemaker) in Aqueboque. Duck Walk North in Southold, which just opened, includes a sprawling tasting room with two bars, a large open-air patio, lots of seating, and a state-of-the-art kitchen—ideal for weddings, parties and corporate events. Fortunately, state Senator Ken LaValle has initiated legislation which will clarify the right for wineries to hold catered events, which has been a contentious issue on Long Island .
