The Taylor’s Island Foundation held a vintage wine tasting fundraiser Saturday at Hanff’s Boatyard in Greenport.
The event, which was held on Greek Independence Day, began with a Champagne toast honoring the life and legacy of S. Gregory Taylor (Soterios Gregorios Tavoulares). He bequeathed Taylor’s Island to Shelter Island Town.
