Wine Tasting in New York – Day 2

beyond blessed-84Rosé season is still going strong and many of us are hoping the summer will stick around a little longer because we aren’t ready to give it up. {anyone else there with me? i’m raising my hand} Day two of our wine tasting weekend in Long Island, New York was filled with delicious rosés and we may or may not have brought a couple home with us.

Our second day was spent visiting delightful farmers markets,  gorgeous sunflowers, great food, delicious wine, and thousands of honey bees… yes, honey bees. I fell in love with the boutique winery called Coffee Pot Cellars for three reasons- Beasley {the wineries mascot & cutest pug who welcomes you when you enter}, their fresh honey/honey beehive {who would have guessed you would go wine tasting & learn about bees}, and their Cyser {made from apples and honey- i’m already dreaming of sipping this while apple picking in the fall}. I didn’t love their wine, but the experience was worth visiting. We also visited Bedell Winery {my favorite New York winery- great ambiance and every wine was fantastic, specifically the blanc de blac and sparkling rosé} and Pugliese Vineyards {great live music, beautiful views, but not my favorite wine}.

Below are my overall suggestions, but check out our first day in Greenport to learn more about the other wineries:

Hotel:
Rent a home on HomeAway or AirBnB. We LOVED the location of the home we rented and would absolutely return. Downtown Greenport is absolutely where you want to stay!

Wineries:
– Bedell
– Coffee Pot Cellars
– Lieb
– McCall
– Sparkling Pointe

Eat:
– Aldo
– American Beach
– Noahs
– Scrimshaw {it has negative reviews online & is pricey, but we snuck in during an evening rain & had a fabulous meal}
– The Frisky Oyster

Coffee
– Aldo

Shop
The entire downtown is filled with incredible little shops with some of the most interesting people! You could spend a day going in and out of each one.
{we bought six vintage pilsner glasses at the Shearer Shop Antique store and learned her husband was at Normandy on D-Day and was the only one from his boat that survived.}

    So awesome that you got to the barn itself! It just puts a community feel to the wine — which is after all a community endeavor. Wine goes through a lot of ageing, with lots of people involved from picking to tasting. It’s only apt to see it this beautifully. :)

    Wow! Everything about this place is stunning…………. I imagined New York to be busy but then who knew this place existed. Is it really an seperate island or it’s just called that? :)

      Manhattan is an island and it really is crazy. I don’t think Long Island is an actual island but rather a long Peninsula. It is a “must do” if you make it out this way!

    I love wine tasting. We had to taste several kinds of wine when we were preparing for our wedding. Not the lavish kind tho.

    The photos looks great! I have been to a wine tasting at a winery a few months ago and loved it. It’s so hard to chose the best wine to buy at the end as they are all delicious.
