Wine and chocolate samples sound like the perfect way to give your Tuesday afternoon a boost — and it’s happening today in Aquebogue.

North Fork Chocolate Co. will host “Tasty Tuesdays” now through the end of November. During the event, patrons can sip wine and sample offerings from vendors who sell their goods at the Main Road store.

Crafters will be also be on hand to talk about their products and dole out samples.

“It’s a way to turn around ‘Tumbleweed Tuesday,’ ” said North Fork Chocolate co-owner Ann Corley, referring to the Tuesday after Labor Day, which marks the end of the summer season. “Customers can come in and sample our artisan products and support our local crafters.”

A pianist will provide music during the event as guests taste wine, meet vendors and, of course, sample chocolate.

The event, which launched Oct. 20, runs from 2 to 6 p.m. every Tuesday through Nov. 24.

Pellegrini Vineyards will be pouring tastes today, Oct. 27.

“It’s all about buying local,” Corley said.

North Fork Chocolate Co. is located at 740 Main Road in Aquebogue.
