Long Island wine country is a beautiful place to enjoy a sip with friends.
There are many wineries located on The Island, mostly on east end; the North and South Fork. I love a day trip. Winery tours are weekend past-times that make life on The Island during the warmer months more than pleasurable.
“The Long Island wine industry has grown from one small vineyard to 2,500 acres of vines and nearly sixty producers of world-class wines.
Located in New York State, on the East Coast of the United States, Long Island extends some 120 miles into the Atlantic Ocean. Its maritime climate, geography and soil characteristics provide ideal conditions for producing wines of exceptional quality.
The Long Island wine region encompasses Nassau and Suffolk Counties, with the majority of wineries and vineyards at the East End, on the North and South Forks. Here, age-old growing techniques are combined with state-of-the-art technology to produce a range of world-class wines from specific varietals and selected blends.” – Long Island Wine Council
Palmer, Raphael, Martha Clara, Anthony Nappa Wines, and Croteaux Vineyards are favorite spots…just to name a few.
