On September 24th and 25th, the wineries of Eastern Long Island (including Borghese Vineyard) invite you to tour the vineyards, explore local flavors, and bid on exceptional, food-friendly wines from one of the world’s most exciting, emerging regions. And, it’s not just fun and games: HARVEST East End benefits East End Hospice and the Peconic Land Trust.
