Come join us on our journey to the North Fork with our fabulous tour guide Bruce Michael! We’ll start our tour by visiting the Southold Museum & Horton Lighthouse. Horton Point Lighthouse was constructed by the U.S. Lighthouse Service in 1857. It is one of eight historic lighthouses located in Southold Township. The lower level of the Keeper's House was converted into Southold Historical Museum's Nautical Museum. Southold Historical Museum preserves and interprets collections that engage, educate and connect the public to Southold, NY’s history and culture. Then we’ll head over to the quaint little town of Greenport to walk around to see the shops and grab a bite to eat on your own. Then we’ll make our way back on the bus to head to Osprey’s Dominion. Osprey's Dominion is comprised of 90 acres of Carmenere, Pinot Gris, and Sauvignon Blanc in the heart of Peconic Long Island, New York. We’ll enjoy a wine tasting before heading onto the North Fork Chocolate Company. They are known for their handcrafted “small batch” artisanal chocolates and individual size gourmet desserts using local farm and purveyor products on Long Island. Only fresh, natural and or organic ingredients go into their products. We’ll enjoy a chocolate tasting and allow for you to peruse their shop. Then our last stop on our journey will be to Briermere Farms. It is a fruit farm and bakery on the North Fork of Long Island. They are known for all their fresh pies, jams, jellies, etc. made from scratch from the fruit on their farm. After that, we’ll start our journey home at about 4:30/4:45 p.m.
