“We knew the Riverhead location was a good one,” said Charles Jr., who has over 30 years of experience in the business. “We carry a large selection of local wines, as well as wines from California and elsewhere.”

Winemart’s selection of fine wines and spirits is vast and varied, also including vodka, tequila, gin, scotch, whisky and bourbon. They also carry champagne and sparkling wines, including prosecco. Charles Jr. is both knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and is always on hand to answer questions or offer suggestions.
