KEEPING WARM: WINE FIRESIDE
Fireplace? We’re there! Ignoring the cold is easy fireside, and with wine involved, this is pretty much the best reason to leave our homes this week. Jumping right in, the first place that comes to mind is Sherwood House Vineyards in Jamesport. Located right on the Main Road, the tasting room is insanely cozy with a fireplace just across from the tasting bar, and surrounded by comfy couches in the charming and rustic setting.
For those seeking a modern aesthetic and an air of sophistication, Sparkling Pointe in Southold, which only produces sparkling wine, has a fireplace in the main tasting room, as well as in their VIP Bubble Room for those extra special occasions. At Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue, the intimate loft area is home to the tasting room’s fireplace, and also offers views into the barrel aging cellar. It’s another nice spot to hideaway from freezing temps.
