Looking for something to do on the North Fork this Friday, Saturday and Sunday? northforker has you covered.
Here are five activities to check out this weekend.
Taste North Fork
Carless city dwellers, or people who don’t want to taste and drive, can take advantage of everything the North Fork has to offer during the annual “Taste North Fork” festival, which returns to Long Island Wine Country on Saturday.
The event features free shuttle service to various locations on the tour, as well as the Mattituck and Greenport Long Island Rail Road stations and Cross Sound Ferry terminal in Orient.
“Taste North Fork” runs from noon to 5:30 p.m. and there is no fee to use the shuttle.

Champagne and Chopin
Pindar Vineyards in Peconic will offer tours of the winery and a look at how their sparkling wine is made during the recurring “Champagne, Chopin and Caviar” tour. Enjoy a complimentary tasting of Pindar’s Cuvée Rare and snack on some hors d’oeuvres. Arrive early, as the free event is first-come, first-served.
The tour will run from 2 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, and Sun. Nov. 15 (as well as the following weekend).
