This past Saturday, August 20th I attended the 7th annual Dan’s Harvest East End food and wine event. It is the last of the trifecta of foodie events held on Long Island presented by Dan’s Paper and the Long Island Wine Council.
The event showcased North Fork Long Island wine and food with local wineries and restaurants in attendance. It was hosted by Iron Chef’s cookbook author and restaurateur, Geoffrey Zakaria and featuring emcee Joshua Wesson, Sommelier and founder of Best Cellars.
The event was held in Cutchogue on the North Fork of Long Island under the big tents at the McCall vineyard and ranch.
All of the local North Fork wineries were at the event pouring their wines along with several beer and spirit vendors. A trend that I noticed this year was that many of the wineries released a Viognier, some of which where better than others
It seemed to me that they cut back on resources than in the previous years, no live music and much less food stalls.
