The Uptown Girl played the part of the upper fork woman today.

Supermodel Christie Brinkley, who lives in Sag Harbor and is frequently spotted around the South Fork, stopped in at Paumanok Vineyards in Aquebogue for a taste of some white wines and also visited nearby Long Season Farms for some wood-roasted corn.

“On the menu, Honey Crisp Apples, Paumanok Chenin Blanc, Fresh Grilled Farmstand Corn #farmstands #winery #northfork,” she posted on her Instagram account under a photo of her and two friends biting into Long Season corn.

She also posed for a photo with Paumanok Vineyards owner Charles Massoud and his son, winemaker Kareem.

“A beautiful day for a visit by a beautiful person,” Paumanok Vineyards posted on its Facebook page.

The beauty industry icon enjoyed a glass of Paumanok 2014 Grand Vintage Chardonnay and 2011 Blanc de Blancs and nibbled on some Catapano Dairy Farm goat cheese.

“Christie was very warm, gracious and approachable,” Kareem Massoud said in an email. “I believe she enjoyed her visit.”


Brinkley, who recently launched her own skincare line, also posted photos of Garden of Eve Organic Farm, 1760 Homestead Farm and Briermere Farms, although it is not clear if she stopped at those locales or snapped a pic from the road.

Brinkley is a noted fan of Long Island wine and has been seen visiting Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack.

Before she reached the upper fork this afternoon, she posted a photo from the Big Duck in Flanders, where a newspaper clipping featuring her photo adorns a bulletin board.

After 30 years in the beauty and fashion industries, the blonde bombshell is keeping busy not only with her eponymous skincare line, but her recently launched sparkling wine “Bellissima Prosecco,” which is produced using grapes grown in the Treviso region in Italy.
