RIVERHEAD - A judge today ruled in favor of Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard after the Town of Riverhead attempted to sue the vineyard for being too noisy.

Judge Peter Mayer sided with the vineyard, saying that state agriculture law prevents towns from making unreasonable demands of agricultural businesses.

Residents in the area have complained that live bands during parties and weddings at the vineyard are too loud. The town also claimed the venue has been holding illegal events.

The vineyard insists there is only music on weekends and there has only been about a half-dozen weddings.
