One Woman Wines
Tasting under the (almost) stars at One Woman Wines & Vineyards

People have been singing the praises of the North Fork for years now: the wineries, the farm stands, the conspicuous lack of crowds. We trolled these fabled farmlands from Riverhead to Greenport and rounded up the coolest things to do right now:

Stargaze in a vineyard One Woman Wines & Vineyards hosts Tasting Under the Stars every Saturday through October 12 from 6 to 10 p.m. Visitors sip on Gruner Veltliner (the only Gruner produced on Long Island) as they peer through a telescope. Watch a movie alfresco--August is Bond month--while the kiddos sit around a bonfire and make s?mores. 5195 Old North Rd., Southold; 631-765-1200

Lunch at a gourmet food truck The renowned North Fork Table & Inn is the place for a white-tablecloth dinner, but if you?re just passing through between 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., go behind the restaurant and join the locals lined up at the joint?s gourmet food truck. Stop by for a McCall Ranch grass-fed-beef ricotta meatball sandwich, a lobster roll or pastry chef Claudia Fleming?s insane chocolate-chip cookies. 57225 Main Rd., Southold; 631-765-0177

Pick up original hostess gifts Peconic River Herb Farm?s 14-acre waterfront nursery and garden is filled with refurbished furniture, vintage watering cans and other housewares. Be sure to take home some of their handcrafted seasonings and spices--we?re partial to the cinnamon-infused ?toast topper.? 2749 River Rd., Calverton, 631-369-0058
