Wine has enchanted poets for centuries, and for good reason: like poetry, good wine can be an emotional experience, lifting the spirit and delighting the senses as it satisfies the soul.
At Pindar Vineyards, our award-winning wines are quite literally dreams come true. It was the dream of our founder Dr. Herodotus “Dan” Damianos that helped create the winemaking industry on Long Island in the early 1980’s. And that dream has, over 35 years, turned Pindar Vineyards into Long Island’s best-known wine producer.
Dr. Herodotus “Dan” Damianos was a visionary. He saw what could be on Long Island when he planted the first vines and decided to make wine. Dr. Dan was also a compassionate doctor. He truly cared about each person he cared for in his practice. Last but certainly not least, he was a beloved family man. His family was his world. His traditions are carried on daily at the winery, in the tasting room and within our family.
