I recently had the pleasure of venturing out to Long Island Wine Country while being hosted by Sound View Greenport. It was one of the most delightful experiences I’ve had. The wonderful thing is that it’s 2-3 hours outside of NYC, my home base and it’s a completely different world. I’m so glad I accepted the invitation from Site Unseen and ventured out to this charming and beautiful setting.
During my stay there, I stayed at Sound View Greenport, a property with decks and beachfront space in every room. It’s a beautiful place with a really good restaurant, The Halyard. The Halyard has a wrap around deck that I imagine gets plenty of use in the warmer summer months. It’s a great spot to dine and take in the phenomenal views.
We were driven around town in this adorable restored trolley.
We took a boat ride to a historical lighthouse and explored what is was like to live in a lighthouse.
One of the wineries we visited was Macari Vineyards which specializes in events for groups. We were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine and pie. I had the pleasure of getting the blueberry cream slice, but honestly I sampled all the pies. Macari definitely knows their market and makes some great wines. They also have a space downstairs for small group tastings and they do a really good job of servicing their customer.
Another vineyard we spent time at was Palmer Vineyard. This vineyard is more laid back and a great place to visit if you just want to hang out in the backyard and sample some wine. It’s a great place to just gather with friends and enjoy a Sunday afternoon.
Long Island Wine Country is a beautiful place to enjoy some of the world’s finest wines. It’s a short distance from Manhattan and well worth the trip. The food is farm fresh, the wine is awesome and the scenery allows you to take a deep breath, let go, relax and breath!!!
