Earlier this week in a drive along Sound Avenue we spotted new signs outside in Riverhead asking passersby to "Drink Local."
It's a common call-out found in areas that support robust local wine regions, and there's no denying that there is a very healthy community, living on the North or South forks or in other areas of Long Island, who live and breathe this credo. One Facebook group, Eat Long Island, Drink Long Island, is clear testament to this.
But how deep does that run in the community at large? We'd love to find out.
In the comments section below, let us know if you count yourself among the "Drink Local" crowd. If so, what are your favorites? Do you join wine clubs or hit the tasting rooms when either stocking up you cellars or just picking out a good wine to relax with on a Friday.
If you don't drink local, we'd also love to know why?
We look forward to your opinions.
