Do any North Fork Vineyards allow food anymore? We found a handful that still permit you to bring picnics.
But, they want you to please remember to clean up after yourself and to refrain from sneaking in outside alcohol. (These are some of the reasons that many of the vineyards have stopped permitting outside food. A few irresponsible guests over the years ruined it for the rest.)
So, if you like the idea of bringing your own picnic while you sip wine – here are a few North Fork Vineyards that still allow it. Please remember that many tasting rooms have strict reservation policies for groups of six and over – check their website or call to find out the details.
Osprey’s Dominion, Main Road Peconic, allows picnics at the outside tables. In fact, Osprey’s has three BBQ stations along with lawn games such as bocce and corn hole. And, there is live music on weekends.
