PECONIC -

Colorful sunflowers are in full bloom at Pindar Vineyards in Peconic.

The East End winery has been planting the flowers for nearly 30 years, becoming a popular spot for tourists.

Visitors can also take a glass of wine and go out in the field and cut flowers for just $2 a stem to take home.

"They're just beautiful. They're bright, very happy," says Alethea Damianos-Conroy, of Pindar Vineyards. "We actually sell a wine we call 'Sunflower Chardonnay' that's very popular with a bright label of sunflowers."

The sunflowers are in bloom until about early August.
