Hundreds of people descended on the East End this weekend as Long Island Winterfest kicked off its first weekend of live music and more.

The tasting rooms were packed with people from western Long Island and beyond looking for a little fun on a cold winter weekend.

“We didn’t even know it was Winterfest, but this place is gorgeous,” Marisa Policastro of West Babylon said while wine tasting at Raphael Winery in Peconic on Saturday. “And these are some of the best reds on the Island.”

Here are few snaps of people enjoying wine and music at Raphael and Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue.
