Preservationist, Conservationist, Farmer
It's Harvest Season! While the farm stands are bursting with local vegetables, apples and pumpkins, vineyards across the North Fork are busy turning grapes into award-winning Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay and more.
So what could be better right now than sitting down for an intimate chat with Russ McCall, Proprietor of McCall Wines?
Come meet Russ and hear how a Brooklyn-raised boy, with life-long roots in Cutchogue, teamed up with the Peconic Land Trust, Town of Southold and Suffolk County, in the 1990s, to save and preserve over 200 acres of local farmland and historic parcels, such as Downs Farm Preserve and Fort Corchaug.
Of course, there will be lots of talk about Russ' award-winning McCall Wines and pasture-raised Charlolais beef as well, so don't miss this informative and fascinating lecture.
