Lament not the loss of the drive-in, for there is now a worthy alternative: the Drink-In Theater.
Summer Thursdays, weather permitting, Harmony Vineyards in Head of the Harbor (featured in our summer issue) becomes an outdoor cinema. Films, often wine-related (see schedule below), are projected on the three-story-high wall of the historic tasting room building and of course their chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and Bordeaux-style red blend are available for purchase. Visitors sit on lawn chairs to enjoy the show and the graceful grounds.
In the summer issue of Edible Long Island you will learn more about the mission and history of the winery itself and how it is also an art gallery.
Visit in June to catch the sculpture of Dennis Leri, a well-known local artist whose work is widely exhibited in the South Fork, but not as often seen in central Long Island. He specializes in indoor and outdoor sculpture, most often in steel, copper and wood. The shapes are bold, yet organic and curved and, in keeping with the Harmony Vineyard leitmotif, harmonizes the tension and play between line and shape.
Also on the schedule for July 11-13 is “Wet Paint” which will feature artists painting live on the grounds of the winery and at beautiful (and almost secret) Avalon Park across the road.
