WATCH: Vineyard 48 Touts Weekend DJ Parties

Cutchogue known for 'Boardy Barn'-style parties promotes 2012 season.

Over the years, in Cutchogue, established on Route 48 in 1982, has evolved from a place to taste award-winning wines and enjoy the North Fork scenery into a day-time club atmosphere, playing host to 'Boardy Barn'-style parties packed with people fresh out of the touring limousine during the warmer months.

It's an approach that has its critics.

Now, with the 2012 winery hopping season just around the corner, the vineyard has released this YouTube promotional video highlighting its party scene.

What do you think? Feel free to comment in the boxes below.

If i didn't want to deal with a lot of traffic and young kids then i wouldn't buy a house next to Disney World. If I didn't want to deal with traffic and drunk people i wouldn't live near a bar or winery. I can't knock V48 for their idea. It is working for them. As a neighboring resident I would see what can be done about the noise...maybe the speakers should be set up pointed away from houses if possible and a sound dampening wall could be put up wherever it would make the most sense to put it and that could help noise complaints. That being said it is mostly a nice event that is thrown there. You can't let one or two bad apples (or grapes in this case) ruin what is mostly a nice, fun and popular event. I wish V48 the best in it's up coming season...

It is very simple, if you don't like it DON'T GO. If your idea of a nice day is going to a quiet vineyard and tasting a few wines to convince yourself that you are some sort of high class wine and cheese connoisseur then vineyard 48 is not for you. Stop complaining. 1500 people disagree with you every Saturday. It's nice to have another option out there. Vineyard 48 is an awesome spot. Over 1500 people agree every weekend.

Firstly you can't compare 48 to the Barn. For those that have never been there (sounds like most of you) yes there's music and dancing (and the problem is?) but it's all varieties of music and more importantly all ages of people. I have never witnessed a fight. Most people take buses or limos so they don't drink and drive. Even better it brings 'new' fresh younger business to the wineries. I, myself, have discovered and love 'new' vineyards I would have never found before. It's a few hours a Saturday and usually it's peoples last stop AFTER they visit other wineries. With the economy the way it is now a days do you really think it's good to complain about an area attraction that's bringing 'new' blood? - Stephanie L

SL - you are correct the barn is a fire trap - dont judge all no fo's by some of the blogs - better here in fresh air and great wine than anywhere else.

Rosemary Vineyard 48 is a great place to visit for all ages! As a senior citizen, I have toured a few wineries on Long Island. For the past couple of years, my senior friends and I have gone to Vineyard 48 two times and enjoyed the music, the setting, the wine and the people. The employees were all friendly, helpful and respectful to us. We are looking forward to another pleasant experience at Vineyard 48 this summer!

wow 1500 people awesome ! so that means in this rough economy all the northfork retail businesses we see some of the people spending their hard earned money in restaurants, markets, gas stations, motels etc etc so stop crying and let the tourists do their thing without you want have a north fork you will have no fork
Frank T February 22, 2012 at 03:00 PM
Sure glad you smart Nassau County folks came here to show us hicks how to run a business.
Chris Wallace April 03, 2012 at 03:31 PM
Stop whining Frank, stay in your back yard and garden
mcshaded April 03, 2012 at 03:49 PM
Wow David, The one good thing about the "1,500 people" is that much like you, most of them leave at the end of the day. Oh, and I hope that V48 gets taxed for those 1,500 as well, including any violations for maximum occupancy...

"I'm sure it may be annoying to some people that live on the North Fork with all the traffic on the weekends but that is the attraction and that is what i assume fuels most of the business on the Fork... " Gravy, darlin'. That's what summer means to year round local business owners.. Gravy. Main course: The local customers supporting local businesses.
Mycouchpullsoutbutidont April 03, 2012 at 05:12 PM
I'm going Saturday...can't wait to get wasted, dance, slay some hoes, dance again, then puke on someone's lawn..Who wants to get some free fertilizer???? Haters
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:27 AM
The wine or whine snobs need to get over themselves. I think that it's great for young people to have a place to go where they don't have to drive to and from the south shore.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:28 AM
Not fair…. waaaaaaa
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:39 AM
So you're saying that they should only make wine and not worry about making money? You're saying that because they are 20 something that they have no taste or manners? I think that you have a lot of nerve criticizing a business that has broken no laws… that I can see by the comments here… And also criticizing people that you don't know as to their taste, manners and dignity. When I was growing up out on the east end there was NOTHING to do but neck in cars and the movies. You snobs need to get over yourselves thinking that you are better than these kids. They're KIDS having fun. Don't be jealous. They are wineries not dance clubs…. well this one is BOTH. Suck it up.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:39 AM
Get over yourself. You're not that impressive.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:41 AM
Disrobing in public??? Are we back in the 19th century when you grew up?
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:51 AM
I can see from the posts here that "community spirit" is ok with running a thriving business out of town because you don't care for the way that they operate. I also have to say that since you clearly have a computer that there is no reason that you don't know the various zoning laws. Well, the reason is probably that you aren't interested in looking them up because complaining is just so much easier. A piece of advice here: when you elect "representatives" to oversee your interests you better not only know what your interests ARE you should also know what THEIR interests are.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:52 AM
Good advice Joanna. Best to stay off of the police radar.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:54 AM
Yea Mike!
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:57 AM
Not to mention that the summer business helps get them through the winter. Not many business out there could survive without the summer business. If it's too lively for you move to the country. Hahaha!!
Joan February 07, 2013 at 04:58 AM
I had some great times at the Boardy Barn back in the olden days. Clams, corn, beer and rock and roll. It was great!
Joan February 07, 2013 at 05:02 AM
Yeah, Mycouch. Right on! Frank T and mcshaded need to lighten up or head on out. There's a lot of world out there that they can live in where there are no young people and no noise or traffic. They should go there and stop worrying about what other people are paying in taxes.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 05:02 AM
Me too Gary. Always good for a few laughs.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 05:04 AM
Yeah, if you want to show some nasty skin keep it at the beach!! Jeezzz.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 05:06 AM
To each his own Celia. Not your style? Don't go there but quit stepping on others toes.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 05:09 AM
Wow Gwen, it must be wonderful being so self righteous and knowing what is the right way for others to behave. It must be a terrible burden knowing everything and having no power to force your will on others.
Joan February 07, 2013 at 05:13 AM
Yea Lori. I personally never went on a wine tour and learned anything about wine. The tasting was all about which wine you liked that they could sell you. It's marketing and nothing else. All of these psudo snobs would have you believe that they are wine experts and look down on V48 are just full of …. something and should go out and get a life. They all seem to be whine experts.
