East Northport Visits Martha Clara Vineyards

Posted by: The Bristal

East Northport residents headed out to Martha Clara Vineyards to enjoy lunch and a flight of wine. Martha Clara’s 2010 Merlot was voted  “Best Merlot in New York State” at the New York Wine and Food Classic. We just had to go try some!

Long Island has so many amazing vineyards, it’s great to take advantage of them during the fall. We even stopped at Briermere Farm on the way home to pick up some of their famous pie!
