 Kontokosta Winery: Kontokosta is Greenport’s first winery and the only winery on the North Fork that is actually on the Sound. You can see the Sound from the tasting room. If you feel so inclined you can even walk to the endge of the bluff and look out onto the beach and the Sound. It is trully a relaxing and beautiful way to drink wine. We are so happy to welcome them to the North Fork. Aside the the view the entire building is made from repurposed materials and runs on wind power!

Shelter Island BBQ @ The Pridwin: Every Wednesday night until Labor Day the Pridwin hosts a BBQ Cookout like no other. They feature live music and an all-you-can-eat cookout menu. You can take the Shelter Island Ferry over or go by boat because they have dock space but it is first come, first serve. If you plan on going just call ahead so there’s enough food for everyone!

Moonlight Mondays & Twilight Tuesdays @ Corey Creek Vineyard: It’s a great feeling when you don’t have to leave the vineyard at 5PM or you can actually stop by a vineyard after work. Corey Creek Winery offers two late nights during the week of great food & Live music til’ 9PM. They have a BBQ by Custom Caterers on Monday and a rotating food truck on Tuesdays.

Fifth Week of Jazz on the Vine Promises Music, Romance and Fun

March 8 begins the fifth week of Jazz on the Vine, the theme for the sixth consecutive 2013 Long Island Winterfest. In most cases, admission prices includes a glass of wine and a chance to win a gift basket of Long Island wines, not to mention an afternoon of great jazz performances. Even though it has been extended, there are only a few weekends left, so make sure you plan on coming out soon or you will miss some amazing music performed in the romantic ambience of our beautiful east end wineries.

The term “Jazz” in Jazz on the Vine is used in the loosest of ways and includes traditional, modern and ragtime jazz as well as show tunes and standards from the classic American songbook.  Our vineyards and wineries provide the perfect venue and backdrop to the cool sounds provided by the over 140 groups that will be featured during Winterfest. Sipping wine and listing to this amazing live music will be the pinnacle of your romantic east end get away.

But best of all… Winterfest coincides with Shorecrest’s Winter Romance getaway package. It’s $475 for a two nights stay and runs through April 2013. It’s good for any room and the package includes:

• A 2 night stay at Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast plus:

• $20 towards dinner for two at one of our favorite restaurants, either the Frisky Oyster, First and South or Noah’s in Greenport

• 2 x $50 gift certificates towards a one hour aromatherapy massage for each guest (non refundable and use optional)

• Our exclusive discount card to 24 wineries including free tastings

• A private wine class or in room champagne picnic.

Here is an example of the MANY performances in coming up this weekend:
