New signs lead the way through Wine Country

MICHAEL WHITE PHOTO | A new sign directing drivers along the wine trail on Sound Avenue, just east of Northville Turnpike, in Riverhead.

Fifty new Long Island Wine Country signs were recently posted throughout the North and South forks, Long Island Wine Council president Ron Goerler said.

He said the green signs direct drivers through both the North Fork and Hamptons wine trails and will be useful to Wine Country visitors, especially those who come from out of town.

“It was important for us to finish our wine trail off,” he said.

The signs were printed and installed with a $100,000 state grant secured three years ago with the help of former assemblyman Marc Alessi, Mr. Goerler said.

The cash also covered fixing up smaller signs that designate individual wineries.
