Long Island Wine and Spirits Tour

No sleeping in for me last Saturday morning. I was up early to head out to the North Fork of Long Island for a wine tour with friends.


It took about an hour and 20 minutes from Midtown to reach our first stop, Martha Clara Vineyards. Upon learning the winery was owned by the Entenmann family all I could think of were crumb donuts. Here I am with Lindsay and Amanda anxiously awaiting our first flight!


Next stop was Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard, which I visited last year and was happy to return. Amy cracked open some bottles for the group and I love this shot of Jenna posing with the wall-o-wine.


Baiting Hollow's famous "Merlot Meatballs" were to die for and I couldn't resist the chili and spinach dip while I was in the comfort food zone. The Mirage red blend was my favorite wine and a portion of the proceeds go toward their horse rescue operation.


Shots anyone? Long Island Spirits vodka distillery was conveniently located next door.


Definitely unnecessary... but included in our package so why not! Here we are in front of the potato fields. Cheers!

Thanks to Lindsay for planning the perfect fall day and Amy for letting me steal a few of her pictures! :)

  14. This looks like such a great weekend! Eastern Long Island is so beautiful especially this time of year. Not too far from my hometown is the Entemann's factory where literally driving by can make your mouth water. Reading this reminded me of just how awesome the east coast is once the Fall weather and activities kick in.
