Tasting Barn & Garden
The Croteaux Tasting Barn and Garden is unique among North Fork wineries. Housed in an 1800’s Carraige Barn, the quaint and cozy tasting room opens up to a beautiful pebbled courtyard garden surrounded by historic barns. During the warmer months, guests are welcomed to enjoy table service at the outdoor bar, at an umbrella table, or open sided lounge. Our lounge is a cool breezy indoor space with a unique wind chime wall of hanging Croteaux bottles. Sit in these relaxing surroundings, sip Rosé overlooking the vines, and feel your self transported to a different place.
The venue changes seasonally. In the spring, the bloom of a large weeping cherry tree is the focal point in the center of the garden, with daffodils and forsythia blooming at our entrance. As summer heats up, tropical plants and colors emerge in the garden border with lush greenery from the welcome shade of a large cedar tree. When the grapes in the vineyard are ready for harvest in September, the garden is punctuated with the color of dahlias and mums well into fall. Thanksgiving and the holidays are warm and cozy in the Tasting Barn. Each year, the Tasting Barn and Garden close in the winter, once we sell out of wine, and opens for the season with new releases in March.
