Paumanok Buys Palmer
More exciting news for North Fork real estate…
Two of the North Fork’s oldest vineyards are becoming one. After years of being on the market, Palmer Vineyards is being purchased by fellow Aquebogue vineyard and winery, Paumanok Vineyards. Owned and operated by the Massoud family, the purchase will add an additional 60 acres to Paumanok’s existing 120 acres. In addition to increasing the size of the vineyard and production, the sale will also increase their reach and clientele based as they will now have notable outposts on both the Main Road and Sound Avenue, the two main routes of the Long Island Wine Trail.
Both vineyards were founded in 1983 and are among the first to plant vines on the East End. They have since grown and expanded as Long Island Wine Country has also grown to become a notable region in the country. The Massoud family has said they will continue on with the Palmer name at the winery and on the labels. Kareem Massoud will serve as the winemaker for both vineyards.
