Watch out, Clark Griswold. The inns, vineyards and farms of the North Fork have all decked their halls, and now they’re welcoming you to tour them.
On Saturday, December 5, join the third annual Cutchogue Holiday House Tour to find the holiday spirit right in the heart of wine country. The tour will include stops at three bed-and-breakfasts: the North Fork Guest House, Sunny Side Up Bed & Breakfast, and Sannino’s Bella Vita Vineyard and Bed & Breakfast.
Also on the tour’s route is one of our favorite places to pick up pasture-raised lamb, 8 Hands Farm, and Castello di Borghese. The tour will culminate at the Village Green, where you’ll be free to browse the gift shop and experience the annual home town tree lighting ceremony. In the words of the Great Philosopher Buddy the Elf: The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. And with carolers scheduled to be on hand for the tree lighting ceremony, we imagine there will be a fair share of festive singing on December 5 in Cutchogue.
Each of the tour’s bed-and-breakfast stops will include live music, food, and wine. At the North Fork Guest House and Sunny Side Up, they will be pouring wine from McCall Vineyards and Lieb Cellars, respectively. There will be refreshments at the tree lighting ceremony, as well.
Tickets for the Cutchogue Holiday House Tour are $75 per person, and are available for purchase here. The tours will run from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 5. Vans for group tours are available (at $40 per person) via Casual Pointe Transportation (631.576.4787).
