BAITING HOLLOW FARM VINEYARD

Calverton

We know it’s not in the Hamptons, but Baiting Hollow Farm is worth the visit. Sip on award-winning vintages of Chardonnay, red blends, rosé and a sweet dessert wine and then walk around the back and say hello to the horses. The vineyard doubles as a horse haven that guests of all ages can enjoy. baitinghollowfarmvineyard.com

 

WOODSIDE ORCHARDS

Aquebogue

Start getting excited for fall with a hard cider tasting. The Aquebogue location of Woodside Orchards—also a great spot to go apple picking in the fall—has a tasting room that’s open year-round. The family-run farm, which has been growing apples since the ’80s, makes traditional, sweet and seasonal flavors (like apple-raspberry)—and all of them are available in to-go growlers, of course. woodsideorchards.com

 

DUCK WALK SOUTH

Water Mill 

Spend an afternoon in the French countryside by way of Water Mill. The south location of one of Long Island’s most well-known vineyards features a chateau-style tasting room and breathtaking views. duckwalk.com

 

MONTAUK BREWERY

Montauk

If the come-as-you-are motto doesn’t give you a hint to the laid-back vibe of Montauk Brewery, the welcoming outdoor picnic area will. The brewery—which celebrated its fifth anniversary this summer—offers a few varieties of beer, including a seasonal watermelon session ale that has just the right amount of sweetness. montaukbrewingco.com

 

WÖLFFER ESTATE VINEYARD

Sagaponack

Pro tip: Buy some of Wölffer’s cider to bring to the beach, you’ll be thanking us later. For the full experience, though, Wölffer Estate Vineyard’s fairly new renovated tasting room, with its high ceilings, row of windows and terrace just steps from the vines, is a dreamy place to spend an afternoon. wolffer.com

 

LONG ISLAND SPIRITS

Baiting Hollow

You can’t get much more farm-to-glass than Long Island Spirits: The distillery and tasting room is surrounded by acres of potatoes that get turned into spirits like artisan vodka and fruit-infused sorbetta. The rustic tasting rooms does flights of gin, bourbon, whiskey and vodka as well as craft cocktails. lispirits.com

 

CHANNING DAUGHTERS WINERY

Bridgehampton

This small, charming winery in Bridgehampton offers a variety of different wine for tastings daily, including orange and sparkling wines. It can get crowded, and groups of six or more need a reservation, but if you can manage to sneak away on a weekday afternoon you’ll have the place almost completely to yourself. channingdaughters.com
