January 5, 2012

If you’ve ever been on a wine tour before, you know that it is an unforgettable way to spend the day with family or friends in the lap of luxury. What could be better than drinking superb wine, out in a gorgeous countryside, with a limousine to take you from winery to winery in style and comfort? Here are five reasons to go on a wine tour this spring. If you’ve never been on a Long Island wine tour, then that should be reason number one.

1. Relax – If you’re like us, a glass of wine at the end of a long day can definitely help you relax. Imagine what a full day of drinking wine can do! You are guaranteed to be treated to only the most delicious wines, and for aspiring wine aficionados there is no better place to learn than where it all happens! The Long Island wine area is a lush and gorgeous countryside; you can only imagine how perfect it would be to sit and admire it with a glass of the region’s finest wine in hand.

2. Season – It is usually the fall or summer months that are the busiest for Long Island vineyards, due in part to the industry’s seasonal nature. But our tip is to book your tour for the spring. Not only is the weather a dream, but you’ll find that your stops will be less crowded, and your time more comfortable and pleasantly intimate. Perfect for that honeymoon or anniversary coming up!

3. Safety – Booking a wine tour means making sure that you are taking the safest route, with an experienced designated driver who knows the countryside well. And although wineries are accustomed to having “dump buckets” where the D.D. of the group can spit out the wines they taste, you don’t want to have to lose a member of your party to that! Having your tour booked with a Long Island wine tour limo eases any stress and eliminates the worry of transportation.

For the last two reasons why you should book your Long Island wine tour this spring, stay tuned for the next post!

Perfect Your Next New York Trip With a Long Island Wine Tour

November 8, 2011

One of New Yorkers favorite attractions are Long Island wine tours.  A limousine service will pick you and your friends or family up from the airport, your hotel, or any location of your choosing.  You can sit back on plush leather seats and enjoy delicious wines and the beautiful Long Island scenery while your luxury vehicle driver carries you from winery to winery.

The East Coast of Long Island stretches more than 120 miles into the Atlantic.  The island’s maritime climate, geography, and soil conditions have resulted in exceptional quality wines. In the last twenty-five years the region has grown from one small vineyard to over 3,000 acres of vines.  Despite its youth, the region is quickly becoming one of the favored North American wine regions, and a hot itinerary item when visiting new york.

The maritime climate and glacial soils create a particularly unique terroir which produces absolutely irresistible wines.  We have long, warm summers on the island and cool breezes off the Long Island Sound and Atlantic to temper the heat.  The island produces pretty much every wine style you can imagine, but is best known for its crisp, dry whites produced from Savignon blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin blanc and Pinot Grigio.  As for reds, the region offers elegant Merlots, as well as fruitier Merlots and Pinots.  A number of notable sparkling wines and champagnes are produced here as well.

The Long Island wine tour is a complete package. You get to sample many delicious wines from several wineries, learn how the cool Atlantic winds have shaped the fruit, and experience the breathtaking landscape of the island firsthand.  All from the comfort of a limousine.
