Summer is (unofficially) almost over, and that’s a bummer — but there’s still time for one last hurrah.

On Thursday, Aug. 31, head to Borghese Vineyard (17150 Middle Road, Cutchogue) for the 2nd annual Northforker Wine & Food Classic, our signature late-summer tasting event featuring bites and libations from local restaurants, breweries and vineyards. Indulge in a plethora of small plates and craft drinks from more than 50 purveyors and dance the night away to the sounds of In the Groove.

“Every year we look to raise the bar and make it bigger and better,” said Steve McKenna, vice president of sales and events for Times Review Media. “We’ll have more options and great entertainment. I think, coming from last year, everyone said we created a new tradition, which is a great responsibility we take very seriously.”
