As the snow melts and the weather warms, we all start thinking about the early spring bounty Long Island has in store for us.

Jamesport Vineyards has added a trio of unusual, easy-drinking sparklers to its portfolio.
Look for a pink grapefruit-colored syrah, an amber cabernet franc and a straw yellow albariño (the northforker favorite) made in the pétillant naturel style in the tasting room this fall.

Now in its third year,
North Fork Crush Artisanal Food and Wine Festival returned to Jamesport Vineyards on Saturday, June 24.

We sent contributing northforker photographer David Benthal to capture the fun.
