    Gill’s Pier Winery is a proud sponsor of the Northport Winter Carnival and our own Jill James will be on hand to judge the “Outhouse Race”! After the carnival – grab a friend and come to the tasting room for a Wine & Cheese buffet and bonfire. $5 at the door gets you a glass of wine and cheese plate. What a splendid way to warm up after the carnival! Tasting room will be open from 11am -5pm for regular tasting hours, then from 5-7pm for the Wine & Cheese Party. 231-256-7003.
