It’s true — Long Island is the Napa Valley of the East Coast. This summer Long Island will celebrate 40 years of cultivating grapes on its East End. Sixty active vineyards dot the landscape and offer world-class wine tastings and other public events. In the Hamptons, try Duck Walk Vineyards in Southampton where you can enjoy award-winning wines including Vidal Ice Wine made with grapes frozen on the vine, or the Blueberry Port crafted from wild Maine blueberries, or the unique Pinot Meunier. Wölffer Estate Winery, located for 25 years in Sagaponack, is perched on a rise overlooking the lush vineyards and gently rolling Hamptons’ landscape. Take a sip from its selection of whites, reds, roses, apple and dessert wines. Its popular “Summer In a Bottle” selection, served at its breathtaking back patio, is a great deal for only $16.
