On the North Fork of Long Island, more than 60 vineyards 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 and even lighthouse tours? One of the area's finest boutique wineries, Shinn Estate Vineyards features a four-bedroom 1880s homestead just steps from the vines. Vineyard trails, winery tours and barrel tastings are offered, and sustainably grown wines are a highlight, from a barrel-fermented Chardonnay to a limited edition Petit Verdot, produced in small batches on the estate. Other high notes: stylish bedrooms and a gourmet breakfast with treats such as duck eggs sunny-side up, asparagus risotto and house-made maple smoked bacon.
