Vineyard noise levels anger Cutchogue locals

CUTCHOGUE - Cutchogue residents say a vineyard has become a noisy neighbor since it started holding outdoor events with a deejay. Neighbors of Vineyard 48 along County Road 48 say they have a problem with people urinating on their property, picking vegetables out of their gardens and parking in their front yards. Manager Matthew McBride says he's addressing the issues. He says he's testing noise levels, changing how limos can enter and exit, adding more security and taking away the deejay's microphone. This is a new situation for city officials. Southold Town Superviser Scott Russell says the winery is zoned for agricultural use and not as an outdoor venue with a deejay. He says he will not allow the winery to be turned into an outdoor venue with a deejay on a regular basis, but that the winery can apply for a permit to host occasional events.
