Uncorking the Wine
Experience the uniqueness of the North Fork wines during the North Fork Uncorked festival. On the 15th and 16th of June the wineries of the North Fork will be holding special events, dinners, and tours to showcase the quality and uniqueness of the valley. This is an opportunity for you to see the valley through the eyes of a vineyardist and winemaker. Come learn why the North Fork valley is increasingly a go-to destination for all kinds of people, including photographers, foodies, and locavores. The wineries of the North Fork are releasing the new vintages for the season and pairing them with tidbits to highlight the pairing of local food and local wine.
Additionally, you may get to taste some vintages that may sell out before half of the summer has passed. Small batch wines that are released in June often don’t last through July. With the quality of the wines we make come unavoidable limitations on quantity, making each product even more unique and special. Come try the new releases and experience the blossoming food and wine industry during the 2013 North Fork Uncorked festival.
