This year was filled with many great sips throughout both forks. I visited several new vineyards this year and had the opportunity to try many new, luscious beverages. Many of these bottled beauties are now enjoyed by me and my family on a regular basis. From a refreshing, floral lemonade to a sparkling ‘royal’ champagne, below I feature my top ten favorite things I drank in 2016.
I am honored to host a giveaway for my FAVORITE North Fork event: the 10th Annual North Fork Foodie Tour. This will be my second time at the event, and I am so excited to once again explore the generous bounty of the North Fork, stretching from Riverhead to East Marion. This self-guided, family friendly tour includes educational and edible activities, exclusive tours, goat milking, tastings, and more! About twenty vendors are scheduled to attend including Browder’s Birds and North Fork Roasting Company.
I am hosting a giveaway with one of my favorite vineyards on the North Fork, Pindar Vineyards. TWO winners will have the opportunity to win a VIP Tasting Experience Gift Certificate for two at Pindar Vineyards, a $35 value.
Two winners will be selected promptly after the giveaway closes on Monday, August 26th at 11:00pm EST. Enter below:
This past weekend, I had the absolute pleasure of doing a private wine tour and tasting at Pindar Vineyards,the largest and one of the oldest vineyards on Long Island. I enjoyed my tasting at their private VIP Bar opposite and away from the main tasting bar. This was my first visit to the sprawling winery on the North Fork. My experience was complete with a tour of the property, including getting to see the impressive production facility, and expansive barrel room. Notice the wind turbine in the photo gallery below that service as a power source for the vineyard. The customer service at Pindar is five stars across the board. Each staff member was very knowledgeable and hands on.
The VIP bar is especially ideal for intimate milestone celebrations, bachelorette parties, or anniversaries. Cheeses and snacks are available to purchase with your tasting. The vineyard throughout the year will host a number of events and gatherings, including chocolate and wine pairings, fundraisers, car shows, and more.
