Located at Head of the Harbor on Long Island, New York, Harmony Vineyards, Long Island's only waterfront vineyard, sprawls across four acres and offers stunning views of lush greenery set against the backdrop of Stony Brook Harbor. Situated on a former estate that spreads across 32 acres, Harmony's grapevines were first planted in 2002 and their first vintages were produced in 2005.

Founded by Dr. David Ackerman, the vineyard's mission is "to produce outstanding wines in harmony with nature and humanity," and profits are donated to a number of charities including Island Harvest, the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island, and CITY Harvest, NYC's only food rescue organization. In addition, donations are made to The PinkRock, which funds uninsured and underinsured women who are being treated for, or surviving, breast cancer, The Stony Brook Foundation, which provides scholarships for students attending Stony Brook University, and The East African Center for the Empowerment of Women and Children (EAC), an organization that helps communities to achieve empowerment by increasing literacy for women and children, improving their health and eradicating poverty.
