THE NORTH FORK


There are many things to do on the North Fork - Here are a couple of our favorite things:

Orient Point Beach  |  Route 25, Orient, NY 11957 {P} 631-323-2440
This is where we got ENGAGED! So it is a very special place for us. It is the very tip of North Fork. Looking out onto the Long Island Sound, you can see Block Island?


Wineries

Winner of New York Wine and Grape Foundations Winery of the year 2013. In addition to their really good wine, they also raise cattle for grass fed beef. Land conservation is also top of mind for them. Partnering with the Peconic Bay land trust, they preserve Down's Wood's park. Frank reccommends the 2010 Merlot.
