Vineyards & Wineries

Vineyards and wineries  on the North Fork

With their fields of grapevines, North Fork Wine Country's wineries are lovely locations for any celebration, and are particularly romantic for weddings. But at the same time, they are not just for weddings. Consider a winery for other special occasions, such as rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, birthday and anniversary bashes-even a family reunion. If a vineyard celebration or wedding is your dream, there are some things that may help you before you start your search.

  • Size of the affair is often limited. Only a few can accommodate really large groups. If your guest list is small, you have more options.
  • Tents and portable sanitation are usually required. Only a few have indoor space sufficient for large groups of people.
  • Be sure to call ahead to make an appointment. Some wineries have their own event planner on staff; others have personnel to show you around.

Like the wines, no two wineries are the same. Each has its own unique flavor and personality. The wineries listed here welcome weddings and events. Please bear in mind that weekends are very busy, particularly in the summer and during harvest season-mid September to the end of October. You should definitely plan a visit to the wineries at these times, but we strongly urge you to set up appointments to discuss your wedding plans either mid week or during the off season weekends. The staff at all the wineries truly want to assist you in your wedding plans, but it's tough when the tasting room is filled with people! Some wineries have indoor facilities; at others you will need to have a tent erected. Tent weddings are very popular on the East End and they are gorgeous. Most of the wineries do not have in-house caterers, but there are many fine local caterers who have experience with vineyard events.

Castello Di Borghese

17150 Route 48
Cutchogue, NY 11935
(631) 734-5111
www.castellodiborghese.com

On the North Fork, Long Island's wine country, vineyard weddings are very popular, and with the variety of styles at each winery and tasting room there is certain to be a venue to suit every preference. Castello Di Borghese is a delightful location for a wedding ceremony and reception when your preferences lean toward an old world Italian flair with a taste of a rustic country setting. When you say your vows among the vines, you will wonder if you are in Tuscany or Cutchogue, and a celebration under a tent or in the gallery/barn will offer just the right touch of rustic elegance. What we love about Castello Di Borghese is how versatile the space is for weather considerations. If your occasion is in the cooler months, a cocktail hour in the Terracotta Room and reception in the gallery will still charm you and your guests with the old world flair Prince Marco and Princess Ann Marie bring to this founding vineyard of the flourishing Long Island Wine Country. Yes, you read that right. Castello Di Borghese belongs to Italian royalty, although they have made Cutchogue home since 1999 at the first and oldest vineyard on Long Island—now celebrating 40 years in operation.

Savor life with Ann Marie and Marco, and begin your life together at Castello Di Borghese. Easy to reach and very charming indeed, if you are dreaming of a vineyard wedding, Castello Di Borghese simply must be on your list to explore.

Whether you prefer red or white, the Scarola family has tapped into the best this North Fork growing region has to offer, and brings the winemaking traditions begun in Italy to your celebration table here on the East End. Scarola's magic lies in the hand-crafted, passionate care that only a small producer can offer.

Scarola Vineyards' wines can be sampled at the Cedar House on Sound B and B in Mattituck, but you must be a registered guest of the inn to be served.
