It’s mid-November. Pumpkin season is over and Christmas tree season doesn’t begin until well after Thanksgiving. For the most part, “tourist season” is over. Other than stocking up on wine, pies, turkeys and other Thanksgiving sundries, is there really any reason to venture out to the North Fork?
We’re only kidding by asking that question. If there weren’t any reason out Calendar would look a little sparse.
On the weekends one can still find live music, tours and tastings. There are other notable events, like Waters Crest future’s tasting at Caci North Fork, Paumanok’s futures tasting, Bistro 72’s Cigar and Steak Dinner, PawPaw Pop Up, Martha Clara’s Black Friday Concert, Sparkling Pointe’s Eat, Drink, and Be Sparkling, and many others.
There are wines to taste, seasonal beers, hard cider, and restaurant menus featuring the delicious flavors of autumn.
On top of all these events, now is the perfect time to come out during the week. The wineries and breweries are open seven days (most of them) and during the week visitors really can get one-on-one service at their tastings. The ability to ask detailed questions and not feel rushed to leave by the crowds makes for a fantastic experience.
So come on out to the North Fork this Autumn, and taste your way around the wineries, breweries and restaurants!
We’d also like to congratulate Michael Affatato on taking over the Village Cheese Shop on Live Lane in Mattituck. We loved getting Rosemary’s advice on new cheeses to try and we know that Michael is a great match for the Cheese Shop.
