Going wine tasting and enjoying the beautiful scenery at the vineyards that stretch across Long Island’s North Fork is a perfect weekend activity for any time of year. All Island has a list of the best Long Island vineyards for you!
The Best Long Island Vineyards
The Pellegrini Vineyards are located on the North Fork in the town of Cutchogue. With over 60 acres of vineyards, Pellegrini offers a wide range of wines that have received critical acclaim from the New York Times and Food & Wine Magazine. With a tasting room that is open every day of the year except Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Easter and Thanksgiving, Pellegrini is amongst the first Long Island vineyards you should check out.
Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard
Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard can be found on Long Island’s North Fork in the town of Peconic. Their tasting room, which is open seven days a week, is in a rustic barn that was built sometime in the early 1900s. With live music, cheese platters and chocolate pairings every Sunday from 1 pm – 5 pm, Sannino Bella Vita provides a peaceful environment to relax on the weekend.
Founded in 1981, the Jamesport Vineyards are some of oldest of the North Fork wineries. With a tasting room housed in a 165-year old barn and a sprawling lawn behind it, Jamesport is the perfect place to spend a weekend unwinding with some wine. This vineyard also offers a wide range of food. Customers have been very vocal about how delicious the brick-oven pizza is. Jamesport will occasionally host weddings and other private parties, so it would be wise to give them a call to make sure their tasting room is available before you visit.
McCall Wines makes use of grapes from two different vineyards in Cutchogue. Acclaimed by both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, McCall Wines offers some excellent drinks. Their tasting room is in an old potato barn that was once used as a horse stable. Open every day, the tasting room’s rural architecture serves as a monument to the agricultural history of the North Fork. The McCalls also own a ranch in Cutchogue on which they raise grass-fed Charolais cattle, which are known to yield some of the world’s finest beef.
