Wine Country

The North Fork

3 Days

Rated by Wine Enthusiast as one of the ‘Top 10 Wine Regions’ in the world, Long Island Wine Country is home to over 60 vineyards and world-class tasting rooms. From rich Cab Francs to versatile roses and legendary bubbly, regional-inspired brews, and top-shelf liquor, Long Island has grown award-winning, high-quality ingredients for wines and spirits in unmatched settings with winding farmlands and waterfront vineyards that are just two-hours away from Midtown by train.

The North Fork, or as the locals call it “NOFO,” is one of the largest and most preserved agricultural regions in New York State. Known for farm stands offering seasonal produce, local honey, baked goods, and flowers, it should come as no surprise that this rich soil is also used to grow spectacular vines that set the foundation for incredible wines. Here’s a comprehensive trip itinerary making stops at a few of our favorite vineyards (they also happen to be accessible utilizing the Long Island Rail Road and car-share services like Uber and Lyft).
