A local vineyard received recognition on the international canvas recently.
Mattituck‘s Shinn Estate Vineyards was chosen by Bon Appetit as one of the Top 40 nominees for Best Food Lovers‘ hotels in America, 2013. Unfortunately it was not among the Top 10, which were announced on Wednesday.
According to Bon Appetit, each of the 40 getaways features an experience “where the food (and drink) goes way beyond room-service eggs and a beer from the mini-bar.”
Shinn Estate Vineyards, a “quaint little farmhouse on Long Island‘s North Fork,” was given the nod because owners David Page and Barbara Shinn are not only “generous hosts,” but “nothing less than obsessed with viticulture (and food),” according to Bon Appetit.
Shinn Estate Vineyards also drew raves for its breakfast. “Page, a former NYC chef and restaurateur, will cook you one of the best breakfasts you’ve ever had: flaky biscuits, savory duck hash, and farm-fresh eggs. In the late afternoon, a gratis happy hour materializes, with a selection of Shinn wines, local cheeses, and house-smoked charcuterie,” according to Bon Appetit.
Also highlighted were owner-run tours of the biodynamic vineyard.
Ultimately, 10 final winners for 2013 were chosen this week and announced on Wednesday.
Shinn Estate Vineyards is located at 2000 Oregon Road in Mattituck. Call 631-804-0367 or visit shinnestatevineyards.com.
