Long Island Wine Country came in at number five on TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Wine Destinations in the United States. Trailing Sonoma County and Napa Valley in California, Oregon’s Willamette Valley and the Finger Lakes in New York, Long Island bested other competition from California, Oregon and Colorado, with The Old Field Vineyard, Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard and Sparkling Pointe in particular being highlighted.
“We know what you’re thinking. Wine? On Long Island? And it’s good? Yes, yes and yes,” TripAdvisor writes. “Most vineyards are small and bottle their vintages in very limited runs, so you’re not likely to see them in your local wine store or on many restaurant wine lists. Hence, Long Island is a perfect destination for wine lovers who’ve already tasted their way through Napa and Sonoma. Local Syrah and Merlot are reliably good, but try some sparkling Pinot Blanc and excellent rosé, too.”
