North Fork Wine Tastings for Fun and Education

The North Fork boasts some 30 vineyards, and wine tastings are a favorite activity for visitors. Some aren’t very wine focused, mostly a chance to sip otherwise unavailable wine while enjoying live music or entertainment. But some vineyards offer a much deeper experience. Below are some of Shorecrest’s favorite special wine tastings for you to consider, including some November-only opportunities: The Founder’s Tour at Borghese, Winemaker for a Day at Sannino, Champagne and Caviar at […]

North Fork Fall: Live Music Edition (Not Just Weekends!)

The cover photo is a recent live music show at Green Hill Kitchen The North Fork is famous for its farm fresh food and many vineyards, but its live music scene is less well known. That will change now that Green Hill Kitchen is bringing the quality and intimacy of the South Fork’s famous Stephen Talkhouse to Greenport. Not that Green Hill is the only venue in town–during the summer vineyards, restaurants, parks, churches and […]

Harvest the North Fork: September Weekdays

Aerial View of Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast

The North Fork September is bountiful: Farmstands burst with peak harvest, our bays and sound are swimming warm, apples ripen for picking, historic properties offer tours, and the wineries are open. Thing is, this fall escape from the city is no longer a secret and our weekends get crowded like peak season. If you come during the week, you escape the crowds—the difference is much sharper than in August—but you still harvest all the joys. Farmstands, […]

The Nautical North Fork: The Amistad, Lighthouse Cruises & More

The North Fork of Long Island is a nautical paradise. It’s home to Greenport, a vibrant maritime village, and Southold Town with its 163 linear miles of coastline along bays and Long Island Sound. Tall ships have often visited Greenport; the next is the Amistad, which will be open for tours June 16 and Sunday June 17. (The cover photo is the last tall ship to visit Greenport, El Galeón.) While in Greenport, you can visit […]

Taste the North Fork-Wineries!

One way to Taste the North Fork this Veteran’s Day Weekend is hop on and off the free shuttle bus as it stops at twenty different wineries all along the North Fork. Each is offering something special, whether a discount, a featured vintage, or live music. Here are just a few examples: On Saturday, Waters Crest Winery (one of my favorites, since winemaker Jim Waters is so kind to my guests) is offering a wine […]

Taste the North Fork-Greenport!

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).

For example, Noah’s, right on […]
