Renown for farming and named with the Shinnecock Indian Nation’s word for potato, Sagaponack began in 1656 when Josiah Stanborough built its first home. The desirable combination of farm field vistas and beach vibes made Sagaponack the most expensive zip code in the United States in 2009. A handful of notable authors including Truman Capote, Kurt Vonnegut, and George Plimpton once frequented Sagaponack. Although Sagaponack is the most rural of the Hamptons towns, Wolffer Estate Vineyard Wine Stand is the place to be on Friday and Saturday for a gorgeous sunset, wine, and music.
