On the North Fork of Long Island, more than 50 wineries have transformed the region into one of the most appealing wine countries in America. Where else can you pair tastings with activities such as fishing, sailing, antiquing, kayaking, biking and even lighthouse tours? One of the area's finest boutique wineries, Shinn Estate Vineyards features a four-bedroom, circa-1880s homestead for a quiet stay just steps from the vines. Vineyard walks, winery tours and barrel tastings are all on offer, and sustainably grown wines include a wide variety, from a crisp rosé to a hand-harvested Malbec, all produced in small batches right on the estate. Other high notes: stylish bedrooms and a gourmet breakfast with treats such as homemade biscuits, asparagus risotto and maple bacon cured by the owners. Visit in the winter, and you can sip your Cabernet Sauvignon around a cozy, roaring fire.
