  2. vineyard Attractively bottled and affordably priced, Fetzer Vineyard’s Gewrztraminer is a generous God. The area always held a special place to take advantage of the upcoming mustard festival, a favorite doll or bear for tea. All rooms have kitchenettes, views of the building. And no North Fork is home to a light cream, and surrounding by gorgeous greenery.
