New Vines & Branches Store Opens in Westhampton Beach

Vines & Branches, an olive oil, balsamic and gourmet vinegars tasting room, which opened late spring in Greenport, has already expanded opening up a second store in Westhampton Beach on Moniebogue Lane.

The shop offers customers the opportunity to taste more than 45 of vinegars and oils; selections are then bottled to order.

In Edible East End No. 35, the Greenport store was said to sell olive in oil bulk. That is incorrect; it’s a tasting room. The article also stated that owner Rita Winkler “intends to add more vinegars, especially balsamic ” is inaccurate. She already has more than 25 balsamics, but will make seasonal changes.
