Hello from the North Fork
Hello from the North Fork of Long Island. :) We are having a lot of fun on our small mini 1-night vacation here on Long Island. Left in the morning and ended up out here around noon. Went wine tasting at Macari in Mattiuck and then had lunch at Azure in Southold. Neat place right by the water. We had lunch overlooking a small marina. Yummy shrimp cocktail to start, then Shrimp PoBoy & Mozzarella & Tomato & Pesto Panini for our main entrees. Yummy.
Afterwards we did more wine tasting. Went to Kontokosta Winery in Greenport which was right by the water. Only a year old but very neat location. You were able to take your wine out to the bluffs which was fun. Then aferwards we drove back to Southold and checked out Croteaux Vineyards. An all rose vineyard, apparenly the only one in the US. They had a bunch of Southern France style Roses and tasting was held in a neat backyard. Very hippie type enviroment but very neat.
Our last vineyard for the day was Duck Walk, also in Southold. We did a tasting there and then got a couple of glasses of wine and cheese and crackers to take outside on the patio. Had fun sitting outside. After that we drove back to Riverhead to check in at Hotel Indigo. So far I am really enjoying the hotel. It's a fun boutique hotel. The same chain we used when staying in Surfer's Paradise in Australia. :)
Not sure what we are doing tomorrow yet. They are forecasting showers but we might do more wine tastng before leaving the region. Yay for fun mini vacations. :)
