The friendly enophiles at Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard take an interactive approach to wine education, guiding visitors through the ins and outs of the vintner process and offering sips of rich estate wines crafted onsite. Sojourners can venture to the winery to tipple glasses of chardonnay and merlot inside a rustic tasting room situated in a barn built in the early 1900s, or extend their stays with an annual membership to the vineyard?s unique Vine to Wine program. During the course of the year, program members take a hand in every part of the winemaking process, raising grapes from infancy before crushing and pressing them into adulthood at the vineyard?s custom-winemaker center.
The scenic North Fork vineyard is also home to Sannino's bed-and-breakfast, a single Tuscan-style suite that overlooks rows of growing vines and houses numerous amenities including a marble bathtub, 42-inch flat-screen TV, king-size bed, and spacious private living quarters. Complimentary beach passes and tasting tours await overnight guests, as does a full breakfast every morning. Remote wine-lovers can also peruse Sannino's wares online as they envision themselves traversing the verdant property and testing each bottle?s bouquet by closing their eyes and sniffing their computer monitor deeply.

Before the kitchen uses them in rolls and bisques, hard-shell lobsters from northern Maine and Canada are stored in Brewster's Seafood Market's chilled tanks filled with saltwater pumped directly from Shinnecock Bay. They?re among the many locally caught, grown, and produced fish and shellfish available each day at the market, which stays stocked with tasty items such as tuna, mussels, and clams.
Over at the Brewster's restaurant, chefs take seafood right from the display counters and craft dine-in and takeout entrees such as oyster po' boys, linguini with clam sauce, and flounder stuffed with shrimp, scallops, and crabmeat. Along with an eatery and market, the facility accommodates an on-site smokehouse where a fishmonger smokes everything from eel to swordfish .

Chef Marco Barrila knows a thing or two about Italian-style seafood—he grew up in Messina, Sicily. More than 20 years after immigrating to the United States, he decided to open his own eatery in New York's East End, where he felt locals would appreciate the Mediterranean style of cooking he had mastered so many years before. Frutti Di Mare's menu reflects his many cooking styles: grilling, broiling, frying, and roasting. Barrila also whips up party platters of his signature fish for his customers' dinners, graduation parties, or mermaids' graduations from fins to feet.
