LIVE ON THE VINE & Shorecrest Specials

The North Fork of Long Island is a magical place in the winter, not only for it’s spectacular views and serene, peaceful environment but all the great events that are going on!

Live on the Vine is a 6 week mid-winter music festival that takes place in Long Island’s unique vineyard tasting rooms, hotels and other venues on the East End. It has been recognized for its cultural tourism impact during the off season and has proved to be a great attraction to food, wine and music lovers over the winter months, when room rates are lower and tables at some of our top restaurants easier to procure.  

To help you celebrate Winterfest and Live on the Vine in style, Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast is offering two great specials through March during this major North Fork festival:

Taste the North Fork-Greenport!

Taste the North Fork in Greenport,dockside

Beautiful Greenport Village, located just a couple miles away from Shorecrest, offers many ways to Taste the North Fork. Indeed you could while away the entire weekend there (though you’d be missing so much in the other hamlets too). You could start by sampling some Long Island Vodka at Claudio’s, the oldest, same-family run restaurant in the United States.  And then you can wander a few blocks and have a terrific dinner. For example, Noah’s, right on historic Front Street, is offering a marvelous prix fixe dinner (or lunch), with or without wine pairings. Or for a “freshly farmed dinner,” head one block off the main drag to First and South. Or check out the dynamic offerings at The Square (especially since Chef Keith Luce invites you to taste free appetizers). And that’s just Friday!

On Saturday, the special ways to Taste the North Fork expand far beyond food and drink. Head to Clarke’s Garden to learn how to heal with natural products grown, harvested, and made on Shelter Island by Holly Cronin. Or join the Siren’s Song Gallery and the Oysterponds Historical Society for the totally unique, kid friendly, Dyed in the Wool event. Or hunt like a scavanger, Greenport style. Choose between the less traditional “Greenporches”, which will lead you pass through 6 beautiful Greenport Village settings, hosted in part by local agricultural and maritime viniculture producers. Snacks and beverages at each porch. Or go for the more traditional scramble by heading for the 1 pm starting line in Mitchell Park. If local history is more your speed, check out Greenport’s whaling past with a special exhibit at the Stirling Historical Society. If you’d like to listen to live music, one of your choices is Prentiss McNeil at Front Street Station.

And these Saturday listings aren’t even half of what Greenport has on offer that day, and doesn’t even begin to touch what’s going on Sunday. Full listings here.

Taste the North Fork–Shorecrest

Taste the North Fork-Shorecrest

 

One of the loveliest, easiest ways to enjoy all that Greenport has on offer this festival weekend is to stay at Shorecrest. Here you’ll find calm, quiet beauty, a delicious breakfast, and all the inside skinny I can offer on the happenings throughout the weekend. You’ll find Shorecrest an oasis adjacent to, but blissfully apart from, all the hullabaloo. Of course I’m joining in the spirit of the weekend–stay here and I’ll give you a certificate for a lovely wine tasting at nearby Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard and a free bottle of their delicious wine.
