Location: Southold, New York, United States
Rosamond Phelps Baiz, co-owner of The Old Field Vineyards, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners and Entrepreneurs for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the wine industry.
With over 25 years of experience to her credit, Ms. Baiz has proven herself as a business owner in the wine industry. Since 2001, she has operated as a co-owner of The Old Field Vineyards, a family-owned vineyard located in Southold, New York, that she oversees alongside her husband, Christian. The company is well-regarded for its high-quality wines and sustainable practices, such as hand-harvesting grapes and using natural remedies and ingredients to keep grapes and livestock healthy. As part of her vocational journey, Ms. Baiz previously pursued a formal education at Purchase College, where she received a bachelor’s degree in 1992.
In light of her company’s connection to Matthew Calbraith Perry, who assisted in opening Japan to western civilization, Ms. Baiz and the vineyard were previously featured on Japanese television. Furthermore, the company is proud to offer customers their commemorative merlot wine called the Commodore Perry. The vineyard was also featured on News 12 Long Island and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and awarded for its sparkling wine. Her daughter, Olive Perry Weiss, has worked beside him as her right hand in the vineyard, the tasting room and the winery. Both have learned on the fly and have been pleased with a variety of experiments. As a result, they were the first vineyard on the island to make a 100% Cabernet Franc wine; a big hit with their patrons. Her son, Robert Ryan Weiss, who resides in California, returns home several times a year to repair the 1850s farm buildings and equipment. In light of her fulfilling career, Ms. Baiz largely attributes her success to her dedication to her work and the support of her family.
