"Behind the Bottle: The Rise of Wine on Long Island"
On Thursday, September 19th, the Historical Society of Islip Hamlet will host Eileen Duffy who will present "Behind the Bottle: The Rise of Wine on Long Island", based on the book of the same name which she authored.
The story of how Long Island, in a generation, became a world class wine growing region from scratch is as fascinating as the lives of the winemakers who came from states and countries far and wide to unlock Long Island's potential and preserve its agricultural heritage.
Following her presentation will be a Q and A session and sparkling cider. This program runs from 7-9 pm at the Islip Public Library, 71 Monell Ave. It is free and open to the public; refreshments. For more info call: (631) 245-0675
