North Fork Holiday House Tour and Food & Wine Tasting

November 13th, 2009 by Marilyn Marks

A Holiday House Tour and Progressive Food & Wine Tasting will be presented by The North Fork Bed & Breakfast Association (NFBBA) and will spread its magic and good cheer on Saturday, December 5 from 1 PM to 5 PM, to  wine and food lovers, antique buffs, and local charities.  This year ticket holders will be able to choose either the Champagne Tour or the Merlot Tour featuring nine of the Association’s members, each of whom will welcome visitors to their seasonally decorated Bed & Breakfast homes.  

Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast will be one of the five North Fork Bed and Breakfast’s who will participating in the Champagne Tour along with Aunt Dot’s, Quintessentials, Bartlett House, and Blue Iris.  Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast is  offering a special package for the weekend. With a two night booking we will reserve two tickets for you for the Champagne Tour for an inclusive price of $295 per person. If you prefer the Merlot Tour the package for two nights with two tickets will be $275 per person and you still get to enjoy the Shorecrest experience and tasting.

Ticket holders for the B&Bs on the Champagne Tour will travel from one sumptuously decorated house to the next and be treated to a fine pairing of wines and food from the finest North Fork restaurants -Legends, A Mano, Jamesport Manor Inn, Love Lane Kitchen and Frisky Oyster, and taste award-winning wines from Martha Clara, Ospreys Dominion, Old Field, Peconic Bay, and Rafael wineries. 

Each of the B&Bs on the Merlot Tour (Orient Inn, Arbor View House, Harbor Knoll, and Andrews Legacy) will have pulled out all the stops in decorating their homes in Holiday Splendor and will offer refreshments and music to their visitors. 

The December 5th festivity is part of the NFBBA’s commitment to growing business on the North Fork and at the same time light up holiday spirits and welcome both neighbors and tourists to enjoy some of  the delight the East End has to offer during the winter season.  It is also the season for sharing and the NFBBA will donate a percentage of the ticket sales to two charities- Community Action of Southold Town (CAST) and Maureen’s Haven. 

Thanks – and enjoy your trip!
