Castello di Borghese Vineyard and Winery

      Memorial for Ann Marie and Marco Borghese Set for August 16

      The profound and tragic loss last month of Ann Marie and Marco Borghese was felt throughout the East End. Now the family has issued word about a memorial service for the couple next month on August 16. A ceremony will be held at 3 p.m. at the Our Lady of Ostrabrama Church at 3000 Depot Lane in Cutchogue. That evening from 6 to 8 p.m. there will be a memorial concert at the winery featuring Hugh Prestwood and Friends, who have played there before. Admission is free.

      Time to Toast and Taste

      Forty years ago a car ride down the Main Road on the North Fork meant something quite different than it does today. The landscape was still agriculture, broken at intervals by small towns. But it didn’t mean wine country: there were no tasting rooms nor grape vines to the horizon.
