Locals taste for free at Shinn Estate

Looking for something different to do during the cold months? How about a free wine tasting?

Shinn Estate Vineyards in Mattituck will be offering year-round residents of Southold and Riverhead townships a no-cost wine tasting once a month from Jan. 14 through April 1.

Each resident will also be able to take a local trivia quiz to be entered into a monthly drawing for a chance to win a magnum of Shinn Estate Merlot. The grand prize will be a case of Shinn Estate Merlot, to be awarded at the end of the season.
