Long Island has so much to offer in the warm summer months. There are the beautiful beaches of the north and south shore, amusement parks and water parks, state parks, and preserves and many quaint little towns to stroll around including Port Jefferson, Huntington, Northport, Port Washington and many more. Another beautiful and distinctive feature of Long Island is its wineries.
About Wineries Long Island
Long Island boasts over fifty wineries on the east end. These award-winning wineries dot the north and south forks, or commonly referred to as the “fishtail” of Long Island. From Riverhead to Greenport, most of the wineries are located on the north fork; however, the south fork also has a few. Whatever direction you choose to take, a day of wine tasting and winery visiting along the Long Island wine trail is the wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon.
Time Out – New York recently ran an entire feature about some of the wonderful wineries on the north fork of Long Island. The article stated that “The Long Island stretch boasts a fruitful bunch of vineyards that are well worth the two-hour trip from New York City”. If you are lucky enough to already live on Long Island – it is definitely a much shorter trip than two hours!
If you are planning to visit some of the wineries on Long Island, it is best to plan your trip in advance. If you are visiting with a large group, many of the wineries require reservations in advance. And while it is a good idea to pack a picnic basket filled with goodies like cheese, crackers, and snacks to enjoy with your wine, some of the wineries do not let guests bring in outside food, so it is a good idea to call ahead and check in advance. Most wineries, however, do offer some type of food for sale; from exotic cheese boards and charcuterie platters to food trucks on the premises, you will definitely be able to find something that pleases your palette.
As far as transportation goes – the best (and really the only) good idea is to have a designated driver. For the most fun of all, especially if all of the folks in your group want to imbibe on some delicious Long Island vino, hire a limousine or town car to transport you safely to and from the wineries. It is important to plan ahead and make arrangements for safe transportation. Don’t worry about the driving – just concentrate on having a wonderful day out on the east end.
