Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead is transitioning this week to RGNY as the new owners rebrand the North Fork vineyards and winery.
Robert Entenmann first planted vines on the Sound Avenue property in 1995 and named the vineyard after his mother, Martha Clara. The business grew into a popular winery with regular arts shows, private events and live music.
The 110-acres – including the vineyard, winery and adjacent Big-E Farm – sold last year for $15 million to the Rivero-González family. They have been in wine production in Parras, Coahuila Mexico for sixteen years.
The RGNY Winery is open from at 11am – 6pm Monday through Thursdays and on Sundays. And, 11am-8pm on Fridays and Saturdays. No outside food is allowed however RGNY offers cheese platters and other selections. Also, a food truck is on premises on the weekends. Dogs are permitted outside, on leashes.
