Vineyard In New York Loses Liquor License Over Brawls, Rowdy Crowds And Public Sex0
On October 6, 2017, it was announced that the New York State Liquor Authority had suspended the license belonging to a Long Island winery. Officials claim that drunken patrons engaged in public sex and got into drunken brawls at the vineyard.
SLA officials claim that Vineyard 48 in Cutchogue repeatedly served extremely intoxicated customers to the point that it put a strain on local law enforcement. They also allege that the vineyard caused havoc on nearby neighbors. On September 30, neighbors reported that two individuals were having sex on the vineyard’s property. The sexual scene was in full view of the neighbor’s backyard.
On the same day, SLA officials were forced to return to the scene to break up a fight among a drunk and roughly 400 disorderly individuals. The lawyer for the vineyard has fired back. He suggests that the allegations are not true and exaggerated.
