What You Can Expect
Your wine experience starts at Paumanok Vineyards where the winery is a renovated turn-of-the-century barn. It's surrounded by an inviting deck overlooking the vineyards and the spacious tasting room was built on top of the barrel cellar. You'll enjoy an introduction to wine making and a tasting at this mainstay of Long Island wines.
Next stop are the Macari Vineyards. Here, you'll enjoy a wine discussion and tasting with one of the true experts from Macari. Discover how they are on the cutting edge of viticulture and their dedication to a more natural approach to winemaking. Joseph Macari, Jr. is recognized as a pioneer in the movement towards organic and sustainable farming. From the winery's tasting area, enjoy the spectacular views off their stone and timber deck.
After a short break, continue to your final winery - Martha Clara. Here you'll enjoy a picnic lunch (included) together with your wine tasting. This is one of the oldest and most respected wineries in Long Island, winning awards annually for the last 10 years.
After lunch you will head west towards the Tanger Outlets where you will receive mall goodies and then explore the stores - find your own bargain with brand name stores for less. In the late afternoon you will depart west for an evening arrival in New York City.
It was a horrible rainy day, but I still loved the wineries - some good wines. The shopping trip added nothing to the day for me, as I would have preferred more wineries. The picnic lunch was very good even though we had to eat it inside due to the weather. The guide Liz was knowledgeable and very informative. A good trip
