Wine Outing: Tour, Tasting & Lunch at Paumanok Vineyards with Charles Massoud
Join us for a special Saturday in August in Suffolk County for a vineyard tour, tasting and lunch with Charles Massoud of Paumanok Vineyards. The bus will depart from the Penn Club at 8:30am and depart from the vineyard at 2pm.
Founded in the spring of 1983, the 127 acre estate is entirely owned and managed by Ursula and Charles Massoud, and their three sons. Born and raised in the “Old World”, wine has always been a part of their lives and they continue the tradition at Paumanok Vineyards.
Only premium vinifera grapevines are planted, consisting of Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The traditional dense planting of the vineyards at 1100 to 1400 vines per acre produces more concentrated fruit and therefore higher quality wines. For their wines, only estate grown grapes are used and production is limited to fewer than 12,000 cases.
