Relaxing Wine-Tasting Weekend on Long Island's North Fork
Summer and Fall are the two main seasons on the North Fork, when its wineries buzz with visitors (expect traffic jams on weekends, especially during the late September/early October harvest period) and its roadside farm stands burst with fresh corn, cabbage, strawberries, watermelons, peaches, and more. On holiday weekends, rooms tend to sell out weeks in advance.
For lighter crowds, visit in spring as the vines begin to blossom and tasting rooms gear up for the summer rush. The North Fork is quite laid-back in winter (plus there are great lodging deals) making it an ideal destination for a relaxing weekend of winery visits and fine dining.
