- Ranked one of the world’s top 10 wine regions
- Tastings at three award-winning wineries
Ssh… some are calling North Fork the new Napa Valley. Here’s your chance to explore it before it hits the big time. Just outside Manhattan, Long Island Wine Country has been honoured as a Top 10 wine region by ‘Wine Enthusiast’ Magazine, and its reputation is in part due to the three wineries you’ll be visiting on this sublime tour. Accompanied by a guide, tour destinations such as Raphael, Sparkling Pointe, The Lenz Winery or Osprey’s Dominion, all of them award winners, to taste some of the region’s finest vintages.
You’ll travel by private bus from Manhattan, and enjoy up to 12 tastings across three vineyards, with the option to purchase further glasses or bottles on-site. Likely to be as appealing to amateur tasters as it is to master sommeliers, this is a superb introduction to Long Island wines, their subtle flavours and production techniques. The scenery is glorious of course, and you’ll enjoy it with an antipasto platter and gourmet picnic before returning to Manhattan. Escape the city for a day, and discover the next big name in American wine.
