No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
–Aesop (550 B.C.)
Though it is the largest winery on Long Island, Pindar Vineyards holds close to its roots as a family enterprise -- and that includes being a positive force in the community. We have cultivated long-term relationships with charities including the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the East End Hospice, bringing us new friends and partners in giving. Annual fund-raisers held at Pindar Vineyards allow us the privilege of making a difference in our community, and provide an opportunity for us and our friends to help our neighbors in need.
Our annual traditions include:
East End Hospice Annual Pig Roast/BBQ
The kickoff event of the summer season! Each June East End Hospice’s Annual Pig Roast attracts a crowd of happy guests, and the numbers grow every year. This family-friendly event raises funds for hospice services on the North and South Forks. Reservations at www.eeh.org
American Diabetes Association : Long Island Tour de Cure
June 7th, 2014 - The Long Island Tour de Cure is a great ride for a great cause. Because the Tour is a ride, not a race, there are routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Participants travel a route supported from start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to cheer them on as they raise money to help people with diabetes and their families! All routes Start and End at Pindar. After the ride, stick around for the delicious BBQ lunch, live music, a Health and Wellness Village, massages, kids zone and so much more!

Sunflowers for Wishes
Pindar Vineyards is not only famous for wine: our huge sunflower field would make Van Gogh smile. Every July when the sunflowers are in their full glory we open the field so guests can pick their favorite flower, or take home a custom bouquet. "Sunflowers for Wishes" donations are collected through the sales of these flowers and raffles of custom Pindar Vineyards gift baskets and wine. Volunteers make this weekend possible. For information on how you or your organization can participate, contact events@Pindar.net
John Theissen Children's Foundation Annual Toy Drive
Pindar Vineyards accepts new, unwrapped toys in our tasting room during the month of December for the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, which benefits sick and needy children throughout Long Island. As a thank-you every guest who donates a toy is treated to a free tasting. For additional information about the Foundation visit www.jtcf.org
