Wine Tasting Pavilion

Pindar Vineyards commissioned GreenLogic Energy, in partnership with the Long Island
Power Authority, to install a 156’ foot tall, 100 Kilowatt Turbine at its North Fork Winery location.  The turbine is the largest to be erected in Southold, and will power at least 80% of all winery operations.

“This is a significant achievement for Pindar. A symbol of our continued commitment to
sustainable agriculture and renewable energy”, said Alex Damianos – General Manager
