Large-format wines, exclusively bottled for bidding at HARVEST

More than 40 Long Island winemakers and more than 30 top regional chefs and food artisans come together to celebrate the wine-and-food bounty of Long Island Wine Country. Here, you can taste an exciting array of award-winning wines—including barrel samples of not-yet-released wines—and local, seasonal dishes from some of the region’s finest chefs, using all locally sourced produce and meat, fish and fowl.

Tickets are $125 per person if purchased by Sunday, August 10;  $150 per person starting Monday, August 11, and at the door (if available)
