Lieb Behind the Scenes – September 2019

Guys, I’m wearing a sweater and drinking hot coffee in the office right now, and I LOVE IT. Welcome back Fall! We’ve missed you on the North Fork. Fall is always a bitter-sweet season for me, though. “Sweet” because of the crisp, refreshing weather, beautiful sunsets, fall foliage, my gloriously comfortable (albeit less than flattering) fall wardrobe, and of course the excitement of harvest. “Bitter” because it means winter is only a few months away.

It’s finally summer on the North Fork! The beaches and bars are filling up, the wine somehow tastes colder, and the sunsets are getting even more stunning by the day. I’m asked fairly often in the tasting room, “Where should we go to watch the sunset?” My follow up question is always “inside or outside?” Outside, there are countless beautiful beaches up and down the island that are perfect for watching the sun go down. But if you want to be inside, perhaps with a cocktail in hand, I only...
