Taste the North Fork! April 7-9

The March 1 Update

Taste the North Fork is back! This time, it’s in the Spring, April 7-9.

Experience everything Long Island’s wine country has to offer April 7-April 9 by booking one of the weekend packages. Each offers a two night stay, an exclusive wine dinner, special wine tastings, and complimentary transportation to and from dinner and the tastings.  In between these special events, use the free shuttle buses to explore additional wineries and our quaint down towns.

Can’t get away for the whole weekend? Come play for the day–hop a free shuttle bus, and visit wineries, breweries, and downtown shops and restaurants. Take the Hampton Jitney, LIRR, or Cross Sound Ferry and connect with the shuttles. They’ll run loops around the fork all afternoon.

The shuttles will run roughly noonish to five-ish, syncing with the trains. You’ll get a wristband and a map; several wineries will offer special tastings just for you. Details.
