   Yes Great Music , Pizza , and North Fork Wine are a Winning Combination at Macari Vineyards in Mattituck, New York .. Young Edward Macari is taking charge at his new establishment AVELINO PIZZA at Macari Vineyards on The North Fork of Long Island. 
Eddie Macari is manning the Wood Burning Pizza Oven of his Custom Made Pizza Truck. Well it’s really a trailer, but we’ll call it a truck. It rolls off the tongue a bit easier than trailer, as does Eddies Classic Neapolitan Pizza that has been getting some rave reviews ever since it opened just a few short weeks ago. Edward Macari, better known as Eddie may be young but he’s been honing his skills for quite some time, starting as a young boy at his family’s vineyard on The North Fork of Long Island ..  Edward honed both wine and food related proficiency, not to mention life-skills at Macari Vineyards. Along with working at Macari Vineyards from an early age, as well as at some of New York’s hottest restaurants, Edward is a graduate of The Italian Culinary Experience at the International Culinary Center and The Institute of Culinary Education in New York.
Yes we had quite a nice time on our recent visit to Macari Vineyards and Avelino Pizza. We arrived at the winery and made our way to the Macari Tasting Room where we tried some fine North Fork Wine. Our guided tour through a flight of Macari’s most popular wines of Sauvignon Blanc, Rose, Cabernet Franc, and a wine called Dos Aguas was most enjoyable, and informative to boot. They told us we could buy some wine by the bottle and go outside and enjoy. Our tasting guide told us that they had recently opened a Pizzeria on the premises and that they made some great Pizza that would go well with our wine. It sounded like a plan to me, so we bought a couple bottles of wine (Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc) and made our way to the Pizza Truck. We looked over the menu and decided on a classic Pizza Margherita and the Special Pizza of the day, Butternut Squash with Wild Mushrooms and Mozzarella. It took just a few minutes for the Pizza Guys (Eddie & Mike) to make our Pizzas and we were all set. So we sat back, sipped our wine, and devoured our pies. Wow, it may sound Cliche to say, but I’ll say it, “It doesn’t get much better than this.” They were playing some great R&B and ROCK – N – ROLL music mixed in with Louis Prima and Mr. Frank Sinatra, making for a most pleasant atmosphere . We drank our wine and ate that tasty Pizza. Quite an experience, and one I highly recommend.
So if you’re looking for something special one day, head out to The North Fork of Long Island to Avelino Pizza at Macari Vineyards, go inside to Macari ‘s tasting room, take a Wine Tasting at the bar and see which of the Macari Wines you like best. Grab yourself a bottle, get a table outside before heading to the Avelino Pizza Truck and let Eddie and Mike make you a Classic Neapolitan Pizza .. Get your pie, sit down, sip some wine, eat your Pizza and listened to the sounds of Sinatra, Marvin Gaye, Louis Prima, The Rolling Stones, and whoever, and “All will be fine in your World.” Enjoy the experience, Great Music, Pizza, and Macari Wine.
