3rd Annual Summer Soiree Announced!



SOUTHOLD, NY. The Southold Historical Society is pleased to announce that the 3rd annual SUMMER SOIREE, a musical gala, will take place from 6:30-10:00 pm on July 22, 2006. The event will take place at the fabulous Bedell Cellars located on Main Road (Route 25) in Cutchogue.

The 3rd annual gala to be thrown by the Society, the Soiree will feature a live band in addition to a silent auction and raffle. “After the success of last years event we are pleased to offer this great evening fundraiser again,” stated Geoffrey Fleming, Director of the Society.

Bedell Cellars is one of the premier wineries on the North Fork of Long Island. A nationally recognized leader in quality, Bedell produces award-winning Merlot, Bordeaux-style blends, and a hot new Artist Series with label art commissioned from Eric Fischl and Barbara Kruger. The Corey Creek Vineyards label, also grown and produced by Bedell Cellars, is renowned for a series of small batch varietally labeled wines like Gewurztraminer, Cabernet Franc, and most notably Chardonnay.

Bedell's owner, Michael Lynne, Co-Chairman and Co-CEO of New Line Cinema and Executive Producer of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, is raising the bar for quality among Long Island wine estates. Working alongside Bedell's Chief Operating Officer Trent Preszler are founding Winemaker Kip Bedell, Winemaker John Irving Levenberg, and Consulting Oenologist Pascal Marty, formerly of Chateau Mouton Rothschild. The Bedell facility is unmatched regionally for its sophistication. The new state-of-the-art winery was completed in 2005 and boasts custom designed open-top fermenting tanks and a gravity-driven regime to minimize pumping and filtering.

The Soiree will include an open wine bar and the fabulous and amazing hors d’oeuvres created by the Piping Plover Café of Southold. The food from The Piping Plover Café is well known on the North Fork where gourmet food and fine service are the specialty.

This year the famous "Lone Sharks" will be the evenings featured entertainment. Mixing maximum Rhythm 'n' Twang Since 1988, their participation this year should make the 3rd Annual Summer Soiree a memorable one.

Though music is the over-arching theme, other activities will be included during the evening. One of these is a silent auction. The auction will include many donated items, including fine art, antiques, and other assorted items. Please CLICK HERE to see images and descriptions of the items in this years silent Auction.

In addition a special raffle for a three year lease of a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Special 65th Anniversary edition vehicle will be held. Tickets for the raffle are $100 a piece and only 350 tickets will be sold - making it a great purchase for those following the odds! This automobile is generously provided by MULLEN MOTORS of Southold.

Tickets for the 3rd annual Summer Soiree will be available beginning June 20 and are $75 per person. The raffle tickets will also be available.

Tickets for both the Soiree and the raffle can be purchased at the the Southold Historical Society Office, 54325 Main Road, Southold, opposite Rothman's department store. TICKETS MAY ALSO BE PURCHASED AT THE GATE THE DAY OF THE EVENT!
