Long Island is known for its wine country, with dozens of excellent vineyards scattered throughout the area. Our Long Island personal injury lawyers love taking weekend trips to old favorites and discovering new ones. Here are some of our favorite wineries on Long Island:
Loughlin Vineyard is a small, family-owned winery that offers a uniquely intimate experience. This is a true hidden gem, with a secluded location away from the hustle and bustle of Sayville. Tastings are held in a tiny shack-like building that could maybe hold a dozen people comfortably. But this provides for a great experience as you and your small group can learn all about the wine from the family that produces it while trying their selection of 4 or 5 different types.
Located on Stony Brook Harbor, Harmony Vineyards is a picturesque winery that offers beautiful views and wine tastings in a restored Historic Waterfront Tasting Room (circa 1690). The tasting room is in a house which was originally built in 1690 and amended by New York architect Archibald M. Brown in 1904. Most of the original 10,000 square-foot mansion was relocated from the center of the vineyard to the head of the waterfront western vineyard block. It’s listed on the Register of National Historic Places and is definitely the most interesting place we’ve ever had a wine tasting. The wine selection is also incredible, with a variety of delicious Bordeaux-style Red Blends and Chablis-style Chardonnays, as well as some Long Island beers.
Wolffer Estate Vineyard
Over the past 30 years, Wollfer Estate Vineyards has earned a reputation as one of Long Island’s best wineries. It’s an upscale spot with a luxurious feel. During the warmer months of the year, we love sitting outside and taking in the breathtaking views of the vineyard beneath the outdoor section. This is one of our favorite places to watch a sunset during the summer. When it gets colder, the indoor tasting room is immaculately decorated and also a great place to enjoy a bottle or tasting.
Located in Mattituck, Macari Vineyards is a beautiful winery with gorgeous views of vine fields, a friendly and welcoming environment, and an elegant tasting room. While the winery is beautiful, you’ll never feel any sense of snobbery here. We love sitting out in the patio or on the grass and enjoying a bottle of wine as the sun sets during a summer night.
Sherwood House Vineyards
Sherwood House Vineyards is a winery in Jamesport and one of our favorite spots in Long Island wine country. We love the ambiance here,as the tasting room is modernly decorated in a country-style home, making you feel truly welcome. The quality of the wine is just as good, and we love enjoying their affordable wine flights.
