Girls Getaway - Greenport L.I.

Last weekend a couple of my closet girlfriends and I decided to get out of town for the weekend.  We wanted something close so we decided to head out to Greenport on the Northfork of Long Island.  After exploring Greenport back in June with my mom, I was eager to go back and see what it was like in the off-season.  We stayed once again at the beautiful Fordham House B&B.  Halina welcomed us back with open arms and did not disappoint with her delicious breakfast spread!

We explored 2 new (to me) wineries, Pellegrini Vineyards and Croteaux, made our way into town and explored a few new shops, and enjoyed another fabulous dinner at Noah's.

First stop - Pellegrini Vineyards

We picked up an epic picnic spread at The Village Cheese Shop in Mattituck and brought to Pellegrini, unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy outside but we made do in their light-filled tasting barn.  
No picnic is complete without cornichons
Rose for dayssss
Sparkling tasting - it's all in the presentation!
Still tasting - a great way to find out what you like/don't like in a Rose as these were all very different in style and taste



One new shop in Greenport was The Times Vintage - a wonderfully curated shop of vintage clothing and home goods.  I couldn't resist this rabbit fur coat with mixed leather piecing, I wore it to dinner that night but I'm hoping I can put it away until next year - bring on spring!!


I'm a sucker for a good seafood tower
Such a wonderful way to start the day!

On Sunday we rented bikes and made the 8 mile trek out to the eastern-most tip of the island.  It was a little chilly but reminiscent of our summer bike rides in Montauk!  We stopped by Kontokosta Winery on our way back for a quick tasting before packing up and heading back to the city.
  

Homemade strata - with gluten free bread!
This was before the wind picked up...such troopers for sticking with it - 18 miles!!

Post bike ride wine tasting
If you're looking for an easy overnight getaway I would highly recommend Greenport and the Northfork!
