Harvest is a vintner’s celebration of the culmination of a year’s hard work. It marks the transition period in the winemaking cycle from vineyard to cellar. In physical terms, it is the process of picking ripe grapes from the vine.
Long Island Wine Country.com cordially invites you to take part in this once-a-year activity by joining our 12th annual Harvest Fest 2013 ” Day in the Vineyard “.
This full day event takes place at Laurel Lake Vineyards, in the quaint hamlet of Laurel, on the North Fork of Long Island. Laurel Lake Vineyards is a modern vineyard & winery focusing on producing premium quality estate wines.
