Fall begins September 23 and soon enough the leaves will be changing colors, it will be time to put away all the beach clothing and pull out the sweaters, to stow away the barbecue and get the fireplace ready. It’s also the time of “les vendages” (grape harvest), and the making of fine wine.

Autumn...and Wine

Happily, you can find some very good wine estates in the Hamptons, and now is a good time to visit them given that the summer vacationers have left. Here are a few suggestions:

Wölffer Estate: http://www.wolffer.com/

Channing Daughters Winery: http://www.channingdaughters.com/

Duckwalk Vineyards: https://duckwalk.com/

This is also the time to let A Votre Service! help you make a smooth transition from summer to fall. We can clean and put away all the summer furniture. If you’ve had a rather busy and eventful summer, our handymen can see to it that everything in and around your house is in perfect working condition. And after all that summer fun, this is a good time to get serious about organization: we can assist you in removing clutter and organize your home office, attic, basement, and garage. Once all this is accomplished you can sit back and relax by the fireplace with your favorite bottle of red or white.
