North Fork Crush is back! Join us once again in the middle of a vineyard on Long Island’s North Fork, NYC's very own “Wine Country.” The North Fork Crush Wine & Artisanal Food Festival is your opportunity to experience vineyard views and taste all you've been craving in a glorious outdoor setting (expansively tented, to protect from the elements, rain or shine). Enjoy face-to-face conversations with Long Island’s most acclaimed winemakers. You will sample 100+ wines from top New York wineries – as well as selections from other points in the U.S. and around the globe. Learn the tasting notes so you can understand each varietal's flavor characteristics, growth history, and other unique insights the public normally never gets to hear. Along with great wines, sample an array of craft foods and beverages and meet their proprietors up-close-and-personal as well.


  • Sampling 100+ wines from top Long Island Wine Country wineries and other makers from around the U.S. and the world.
  • Nibbling on signature tastes from artisan food makers from the East End – and beyond.
  • Feasting on locally-sourced light accompaniments including cheese, crudité, charcuterie, baked goods, and more.
  • Your own Custom Souvenir Tasting Glass.
  • A complimentary wine tote.
  • Live Music, adding to the festive vineyard atmosphere.


  • North Fork Crush is your chance to sample wine at a working vineyard and receive tasting notes directly from the source to enhance your wine IQ.
  • Relish the unique opportunity for face-to-face conversations with Long Island’s most acclaimed winemakers and key winery personnel.
  • An array of artisanal food and beverage makers will sample their specialties and talk about their unique offerings and interesting back-stories.


  • Treat your taste buds to samples but from diverse artisan food makers featuring cheeses, charcuterie, olive oils, dips, chocolates, baked goods, and more.
  • Bring the party home! Full-size selections will be on hand, available for purchase from NY State Farm wineries, cideries, distilleries, and artisanal food and beverage makers so you can continue to enjoy your faves post-event.


  • Enhance your NoFo experience. Select the VIP Ticket for admission to the roomy tented VIP Lounge where you can kick back and enjoy 12 specially curated wines not poured at the main tasting, including Long Island reserve wines and an international vintage or two for an intriguing comparison. Also enjoy exclusive locally-sourced appetizers that pair well with these special selections.
  • Key winery staff, winemakers, and sommeliers will be on hand to chat about the special wines and answer questions. (VIP Lounge opens at 1pm for the afternoon session and at 5pm for the evening session. Last call is 15 min. prior to close of event.)


  • Duck Walk was founded by Dr. Herodotus “Dan” Damianos, who helped launch the winemaking industry on Long Island in the early 1980s.
  • Initially founding Duck Walk Vineyards in Southampton, they opened their second location in 2007 on the North Fork.
  • Surrounded by 30 beautiful acres of Sauvignon Blanc grapevines, the vineyard is the ideal setting to taste wines at North Fork Crush, protected from the elements, rain or shine.
