Greenport Holiday Festival on Long Island’s North Fork

The holiday season in the historic maritime village of Greenport, just 5 minutes drive from Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast in Southold began Saturday, November 27th with the arrival of Santa and the lighting of the holiday tree in Mitchell Park. Every weekend through to the New Year events are scheduled in the village for children and adults, including the opportunity for shopping, great dining (such as Noah’s and The Frisky Oyster) plus concerts, house tours, films, and much more for your entertainment.

The season culminates with a bang – literally – on New Year’s Eve with a party and celebration at the carousel in Mitchell Park, the traditional raising of the anchor, and spectacular fireworks over Greenport Harbor. For a complete list of events you can visit the Greenport Holiday Festival website and for photographs and more pictures, the Suffolk Times on line newspaper has a comprehensive spread on Greenport and the festival activities this week.

Fireworks over the Harbor in Greenport

 

Visitors to Greenport and the North Fork discover a treasure trove of delights for all appetites; gifts for everyone on your list; decorations and gift wraps; antique stores and museum shops. All the villages along the length of Rout 25, one of the two east to west roads from Riverhead to Orient Point offer their own unique holiday festivities.

Each year the Southold Historical Society hosts a candlelight tour of the Historic District in December to coincide with the North Fork Bed and Breakfast Associations Holiday House Tour; also in Southold is the Custer Institute Observatory, which is open every Saturday evening for star gazing or catching the latest meteor shower. Southold is famous for its dark skies and lack of light pollution and star gazing is a favorite of Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast or rental house guests from our beach on the Long Island Sound.

Speaking of things to do on the North Fork during the holidays and winter, we cannot forget to mention the wineries and vineyards. Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast is making its own wine this year with Lisa and Anthony Sannino of Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard on Peconic Lane in Cutchogue, the only custom wine making facility on the North Fork of Long Island. We are just printing up our first label and hope to have some bottles ready to serve and gift in time for Christmas this year. Shorecrest and the other members of the North Fork Bed and Breakfast Association (NFBBA) also offer to our guests an exclusive winery discount card, with special offers on purchases and complimentary tastings at over 20 wineries.

So come along and enjoy the festivities during the holiday season; we are open for visitors Christmas day and the week between Christmas and New Year, and every weekend throughout the winter. We look forward to welcoming you to Shorecrest soon.

Wishing you a very happy holiday season and healthy and Successful New Year

Greenport Holiday Festival on Long Island’s North Fork

Harvesting the North Fork – New York, Long Island’s Wine Country

Harvesting the grapes in the Sannino Vineyard

October is harvest time for grapes as well as apples and pumpkins here on the North Fork of Long Island. This year I decided to take part in the custom wine making program run by Lisa and Anthony Sannino at their Bella Vita vineyard in Cutchogue.  I want Shorecrest to have its own wine and a couple of other BnB owner friends, Mark and Liz Macnish of Andrew’s Legacy in Cutchogue and Leueen who owns Harbor Knoll in Greenport liked the idea too, so we purchased a barrel together. This is such a great idea! A barrel produces 23 cases, 12 bottles to a case, and is such a fun thing to do with friends or family.

Merlot grapes on the vine ready for picking.

The program is a hands on experience, from harvesting the grapes in the Sannino’s own vineyard and learning all about viticulture as we go, through all the processes involved in creating a bottle of wine:  picking, crushing and pressing the grapes,  through the fermentation process  and then blending and bottling.

Two weeks ago, at the end of September and right before a storm was due to come through I went out with some other ‘winemakers in training’ to pick Merlot grapes. The harvest is early this year on the East End of Long Island due to the long hot summer, starting with some 75 degree days in April and ninety degree days in June. Grapes do well in this weather and the sugar content is high. That is how Anthony knows when the grapes are ready to harvest; he measures the sugar content and crushes a few bunches to taste the juice. So delicious, and that is before it became wine! Also delicious was the al fresco lunch that Lisa, with the help of Anthony’s mom and dad, served on their farm house’s porch in the vineyard, but I get ahead of myself.

Underdeveloped grapes are found higher on the vine in more shade

The seed of an unripe grape is green, and reddish in a ripe grape.

The morning for our grape picking experience was perfect; not too hot or chilly, and started with coffee and breakfast on the wrap around deck. I’d already served breakfast to my guests but was glad of an extra ‘cuppa Joe’ before we went off into the vineyard with our pruners and collection baskets to pick the ripe bunches of grapes. I learned where to cut and which ones not to choose. The seed of a ripe grape is reddish and green if it is not yet ripe.

There are also several diseases that can afflict grapes especially fungi and these were to be avoided. The fungus that we saw a little of that day was BotrytisAs an avid gardener, I had yet to meet a fungal disease that I could like, but Botrytis I learned is not all bad.  The fungus gives rise to two different kinds of infections on grapes. The first, grey rot, is the result of consistently wet or humid conditions, and typically results in the loss of the affected bunches. The second, noble rot, occurs when drier conditions follow wetter, and can result in distinctive sweet dessert wines, such as Sauternes. This summer, with such consistently hot weather the few bunches that were infected were of the ‘noble’ kind but as we were picking merlot and not grapes for sweet wines, we had to discard those.

What not to pick - Botrytis blight at 3 o'clock!

We were also careful to avoid the under ripe grapes that were higher on the vine and shaded by more leaves. The grapes we wanted all grow at the lowest level of the vine and were hanging down in giant lush clumps.

We picked for several hours and when our bins were full and also the stomachs of us field hands (after eating as much fresh baked pizza, pulled pork, salad, chicken and pasta as we could, paired of course with equally delicious Bella Vita wine) we headed off to help with the ‘crush’. The baskets of grapes were loaded onto trucks for transportation to the winery where they were weighed, Anthony taking careful notes all along, and then processed through a machine that de-stems them before shooting the crushed up pulp and skins into giant bins ready to begin the first part of the fermentation process.

More on this in the next article, but if this interests you enough to think you would like to make your own wine and enjoy a wonderful North Fork experience in the process, contact me at the Shorecrest for a special discount on a barrel of wine when you are my guest . I will also be putting together special packages over the winter and spring that will include Friday night dinners with your weekend stay at the BnB, wine appreciation classes with food pairing, and guided tours with a customized itinerary based on what there is going on at the time, for my guests. Larger groups might consider renting one of my private water front houses that sleep from 6-8 people and also accept children and in some cases pets. To see more details please visit the Shorecrest Property Management website.

My website now includes a page with maps of all the wineries, restaurants and other amenities in the area. Check my ‘Area Attractions’ page before planning your trip to see all there is to do in this unique part of Long Island.

So keep checking into the blog for updates on how the wine making process is going as well as other events and happenings at the Shorecrest BnB on the North Fork of Long Island’s fabulous East End!

Getting around on the North Fork

Shorecrest is offering a special driver service for those of our guests who want to avoid the hassle of parking in the village on this weekend. A pick up or drop off from the BnB to Greenport is $10 each way. We are also offering this service for winery visits, at $20 per pick up or drop off for up to 6 people. We can also help you organize your wine tour using our winery discount card for best value!

For city dwellers that would like to come by bus or train and still want to be able to conveniently travel around the North Fork visiting different villages and wineries, this can be a great option, and for groups visiting together the price is excellent! We can also arrange for bicycle rentals for getting around on the roads and kayak rentals for paddling the creeks. Shorecrest’s own beach on the Arshamomoque inlet to the rear of the BnB is a great place to launch a kayak, canoe or paddle board.

Paddlers at Sunset - wish you were here....

Speak to the Innkeeper, or visit our website to learn more about your options for traveling while on the North Fork and all concierge services from wine tours to restaurant reservations and bike or kayak rentals.

We are here to help make your visit to the beautiful North Fork the best it could possibly be!

August events at the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast and North Fork Long Island



This last week got away from me once again; I’d intended to post far more information about events going on but between my summer neighbors who come to visit and enjoying my guests company I’ve been too  busy having fun. Time just flies but I am taking a couple of hours to catch up now.

Guests gather with the Innkeeper for a 'photo momento' of a great visit

Talking of guests, a group of charming young men that just visited last weekend sent me this  photograph taken of us all standing on my front steps – don’t we look as though we are about to break into song? They were only here a short time but loved their stay and managed to see a lot, driving out to Orient State Park after breakfast  on Saturday before sampling  the wines of 6 different vineyards and then taking the ferry from Greenport to Shelter Island for an early evening tour and dinner at Planet Bliss where the food was pronounced ‘delicious’. You can reach Planet Bliss at 631-749-0053 for exact hours & reservations.  Thanks Perry, Shawn, Darryl  and Johnnie for taking the time to share and sending the photos. I’ve been meaning to start a ‘guest  photo gallery’ and this will be a great star!.

The weather has continued to be glorious; the whole of the last weekend and most of last week the temperature was in the 80’s f with a gentle breeze. This was perfect for the many outdoor events that were available to be enjoyed in the Vineyards, farms, parks and towns of the North Fork.

The East End Arts Council continues to sponsor wonderful musical and art events in conjunction with wineries and other local and regional businesses. On Saturday evening I attended a BNY Mellon Winepress event concert at Castello Di Borghese winery in Cutchogue to listen to Hugh Prestwood and Friends. Members of the East End Arts Council were invited to a pre concert reception where Noah of Noah’s restaurant in Greenport prepared delicious appetizers.  I especially loved the goat cheese and beetroot ‘squares’ drizzled with his mom’s home-made honey  and pine nuts – yum, try it when you next visit Noah’s.  Noah’s is one of my favorite restaurants in Greenport and one I always recommend to my guests. I love the ‘small plate’ menu and they offer 3 and 5 ounce glasses of wine so you can conveniently pair different  wines with the various dishes you might wish to sample.

Hugh Prestwood

During the pre concert reception Castello di Borghese served their Pinot Noir 2006 Estate and Sauvignon Blanc 2008 Reserve which were both outstanding. The Shorecrest  Bed and Breakfast offers an exclusive discount card to guests of the BnB and rental properties which includes up to a 15% discount on quantity purchases of Castello Di Borghese wines and also a $5 discount off their ‘Wine Makers Walk’ tour. The tour takes you through the vineyard to their wine production facilities where you will learn about their Pinot Noir and other wines and get to taste them at various stages of development. Back in the tasting room after the tour you will taste the finished products. I’ve taken the tour and enjoyed it immensely. It is scheduled for Thursday  and Sunday afternoons at 1pm during August at a cost of $20, or $15 with your Shorecrest discount. Advanced booking required by calling the vineyard at (631) 734-5111.

The 'Subdudes' play at the NoFo Rock and Folk Festival

Also on Saturday and Sunday the NoFo Rock and Folk Festival, again sponsored in part by the East End Arts Council   was held at Peconic Bay vineyards in Cutchogue. The quality of the musical acts was outstanding and again beautiful weather blessed the event. There was a small village of tents set up in the fields amongst the vines where the concert was hosted housing vendors with lots of interesting wares and delicious food and drink, but apart from the music, the highlight of the event for me was learning to use a Hula Hoop! I’ve been attempting to do this since the 1950’s and finally learned how with the experienced help of  Amy Gabrielson, a Hula Hoop expert. She was there with the weighted hoops that she makes herself, and explained that getting the right size is very important. Maybe I can get Amy to come by for pre- breakfast Hula Hooping exercise on the beach. Low impact and great for the abs. Perhaps this could become a Shorecrest specialty as the NoFo Rock Festival will during future North Fork summers! Be sure and make a note on your calendar for next year so you don’t miss this fun event.

Woody Mann will be playing at Wine Press concerts on the North Fork

Hear Toby Walker at Duck Walk Winery

Also keep an eye out for future Winepress events this year. The next one is on August 14 featuring Woody Mann & Toby Walker at Duck Walk North Vineyard
