Is it too early in the year to declare it “wine season?” While on some days the air still carries a slight chill with it, a light jacket is really all you need before you head off to Wine Country on the eastern end of Long Island. Boasting nearly 40 different vineyards and wineries, you’ll find a vast sampling of various wines – reds, whites and roses, bitter and fruity, sparkling and dessert wines, whatever your poison. Many, if not all, of Long Island’s vineyards offer tours of their facilities, with wine tasting and food pairing after a quick lesson in wine making. A number of Long Island limousine companies offer special tours of vineyards with a limo transporting you and your friends in style from one vineyard to another. What’s more, Long Island’s wineries often hold community events such as live concerts and psychic readings. You might even want to consider hosting your next big event, like a family reunion or wedding, at a vineyard with their picturesque scenery and festive atmosphere. Whether you make it out east only once or turn wine tasting into a monthly tradition, make it a point to drink up life at these gorgeous vineyards this summer.
