New York Wine Events will host a duo of wine and food tasting events this summer on Long Island’s East End presented by Citi. The 4th Annual North Fork Crush Wine & Artisanal Food Festival takes place Saturday, June 23 at Jamesport Vineyards in Jamesport, New York. The Summer Rosé & Bubbly Fest is the latest addition to New York Wine Events’ tastings and will be held Saturday, July 28 at Palmer Vineyards in Riverhead, New York. Each event includes a choice of two sessions, Afternoon: 12-3pm or Evening: 4-7pm.
The festivals each feature over 20 wineries from Long Island and beyond with a plethora of wines to taste, light bites including cheeses, charcuterie, crudités, breads, and crackers, plus numerous artisanal food and beverage sampling tables. Guests can keep their complimentary custom wine tasting glass as a souvenir from their day out in Long Island Wine Country and chat with the winemakers and key vineyard personnel to learn all about the selections directly from the source. North Fork and New York State farm wineries will also be selling the wines guests enjoy by the bottle or case.
“With Long Island Wine Country in such close proximity to New York City and its suburbs, it’s wonderful to be able to introduce this region to those who have not yet visited, and to also bring fans of the North Fork back to try new wines. The area has so many noteworthy winemakers and bringing them together with wine enthusiasts for a very up close and personal experience is always exciting. Sipping wines in a glorious vineyard setting while tasting local artisan fare truly highlights the East End’s exceptional offerings in a most engaging way,” notes Sam Kimball, Founder, New York Wine Events.
