Now that spring has sprung, local farmer’s markets, restaurants, hotels and shops are opening at a breakneck speed.

Here is a list of East End businesses that have recently reopened or will open soon, along with the return of one of the season’s most-anticipated rosés.

Wölffer Estate Vineyard’s ‘Summer in a Bottle’ rosé

Wölffer Estate Vineyard’s best-selling Summer in a Bottle rosé is back for a third season and started shipping this week. The popular pink wine, perennially a northforker favorite, has sold out twice in the last two years.

Fresh and fruity, this tasty wine is sold in a beautiful bottle designed by the UK team IWANT. Nothing says summer on the East End like this bottle on your outdoor patio table.

To order a case visit or stop by the Wolffer Estate Wine Stand to pick up a bottle. You might also find it at Roanoke Vineyards’ Love Lane tasting room in Mattituck. The Wine Stand opened on March 11 and is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays through Sundays.
