Think you have to go to Napa to experience the beauty of wine country? Think again. With New York Wine Events, you can squeeze in a little winery fun with a trip to the Big Apple.
New York Wine Events promises relaxing days at some of the greater New York area best wineries. You’ll spend a full day engaged in all things cheese and wine. What a way to kick off or end your vacation.
The team at New York Wine Events has two options. It’s up to you if you’d rather explore Long Island Wineries or Hudson Valley Wineries. With two options, it’s hard to know where to begin.
The beginning of your day will start out the same for both tours. You’ll need to be ready to board the shuttle at 8:45 AM sharp as tours depart at 9:00 AM. Shuttle pick up is located in front of 140 E. 41st Street.
If you are heading out to Long Island based wineries, you’ll make stops at Jamesport Vineyards, Martha Clara Vineyards, Pellegrini Vineyards, Pindar Vineyards, and Lenz Winery. The tours are seasonal beginning on Sat. April 6 running through Sat. November 16. The Long Island Wineries will also have dates on Thursdays from June 13 to August 29.
If the Long Island based wineries don’t pique your interest, the team at New York Wine Events also has tours available to Hudson Valley based wineries. As you embark up the Hudson, you’ll enjoy stops at Benmarl, Robibero, Stoutridge and more. The tours will depart on Sundays from May 26 to October 27.
Both winery tours will offer the chance to meet the winemakers, taste the wines and walk the vines. Tour guides are wine experts and sommeliers. You’ll spend 90+ minutes at each stop along the way.
There will also be cheese, breads, olives, and Italian finger sandwiches at each location. The wineries will also have discounts available for bottle purchases. Both tours end with a stop at a local farmers market.
Tours return back to the Midtown area around 6:00 PM so plan for a full day out on the road with this tour. Every guest must be ages 21 and over. Ready to see the other side of New York? Head over to 365Tickets USA to get your tickets.
