A Day for Rose´ on the North Fork
National Rose´ Day, which is celebrated annually on the second Saturday in June, will be observed locally with the second annual North Fork Rose´ Crawl on June 10. A self-guided crawl to four of the North Fork’s premier rose´ producers — Bridge Lane, Martha Clara, Lenz and Osprey’s Dominion — costs $10 per person. Ticket purchasers will receive a North Fork Rose´ Crawl button in the mail, with the deadline for ordering pre-sale tickets set for June 1 (visit bridgelanewine.com for more info). Here is an early taste of what’s to come.
