Long Island Wine Country has been around for over three decades and has over 3,000 acres of vines and over 50 producers of world class wines. The majority of Long Island wineries are located on the North and South Fork of Long Island’s East End. The climate has ideal conditions for producing high quality wines, where they use age-old techniques combined with state of the art technology. It has been said that Long Island has the most exciting wine productions with great views and highly praised restaurants.
A tour of Long Island’s wineries is exciting and a special experience since it provides the opportunity to sample award winning wines, enjoy beautiful scenery, and stop for great food along the way. Even though wine tasting tours have become a more recent phenomenon the East End Long Island wineries have been around for decades, most of them being family owned. If you decide to spend the night there is a choice of beautiful hotels nearby (Hotel Indigo & Hilton Garden Inn being two of our personal favorites) and activities ranging from sports, leisure and entertainment.
There are a few different ways to plan your wine tours. If you’re going with more than 4 people and if you are taking a limousine you MUST have reservations at each winery you plan on stopping at especially on a weekend. Many limousine companies on Long Island offer wine tour packages which include your winery admission fee and boxed lunches. You can also rent a limousine by the hour and plan your own wine tour, in which you pick your own wineries, call to the reservation, and pay each winery separately when you arrive. For your convenience Legend Limousines has a staff of Special Event Coordinators on staff to help plan your day. They can set up all of your wine tasting, stops, order your boxed lunch or make reservations either at a restaurant of your choice or a recommended restaurant by our staff.
