When thinking about the wine of North Fork of Long Island, also remember to think about cheese.  One of the favorite cheese shops on the North Fork of Long Island is the Village Cheese Shop in Mattituck.  The choices are amazing and with over 100 cheeses to choose from, it may take a little time to make your decision and they will be sure to assist you along the way.
The Village Cheese Shop was opened in 2001 and they feature cheese categories including French, Italian, American, Spanish, Dutch, English, and Swiss.  Then, there are multiple cheese options under each category.  Take it a step further and you can order sampler plates or cheese fondue which is served in a crock pot with chunks of crusty bread for dipping.  Yum!  I think that I have died and gone to cheese heaven!
One of the most popular cheese plates, the Twin Forks, includes Atlantic Mist, soft ripened cows’ milk cheese, and honey lavender goat cheese from Catapano’s Farm.  The plate includes fruit, chutney, and bread toasts.  Everything you need for a romantic picnic or sit down and enjoy it at the shop.
Here’s to the wine country’s cheese shop!

Greenport Tea company

Tea lovers unite and add the Greenport Tea Company to your list of places to stop when shopping in Greenport, Long Island.  Once a tea lover, always a tea lover and Greenport Tea Company has everything that you need to enjoy a great cup of tea.  Zagat calls them the “gem” of an afternoon tearoom and says they bring a “touch of England” to the bay.  This is easy to do since one of the owners came from England and knows how to serve a great cup to tea.
The shelves of the Greenport Tea Company are filled with over 50 jars of tea, all dedicated to the pleasure of steeping and drinking first-rate loose-leaf tea.  They even have a dessert tea called Sweet Endings, which was blended by the owners and has scents of caramel, chocolate, and vanilla.  Perhaps you may wish to have a little lemon curd or enjoy High Tea for two?  Once you have tried their tea and returned home, fear not!  They offer on-line shopping on their website and you can replenish your supply of tea or enhance your tea brewing accessories.
At any time during the year, but especially during the winter months, this is a delightful way to spend an afternoon in Greenport on the North Fork of Long Island.
We at Arbor View House also serve tea in the afternoon for our guests.  Come join us here and at the Greenport Tea Company.
