On June 27, just a month from now, the North Fork’s many vineyards are uniting to celebrate our unique, stunningly world class wine and food.

Plus you’d enjoy delicious light food accompaniments by Noah’s Restaurant, including artisanal charcuterie platters, assorted cheeses, locally baked breads, and fresh fruits.

But wait, there’s more: a sampling selection of the North Fork’s finest artisan foods–Chocolates, ethnic foods, jams, dips, vegan delights, cakes, cookies, cheese, nuts, seasonal specialties and beverages. Enjoy all this accompanied by a live jazz concert on the vineyard grounds, and take home the wine glass you tasted in–your souvenir.  Jamesport Vineyard hosts, its beautiful locale providing the backdrop for this don’t-miss event.
