It is first time in the North Fork wine country, and it’s been wonderful! I've loved it. Best experience ever.
You can try so many different wines and eat different foods, and we had great weather. Even if it were raining you would be fine! The tour host and winery staff are so knowledgeable and hospitable.
We visited two vineyards and a Farmer’s Market, tasted delicious wine, had the option to buy flight tastings, well priced. We didn’t feel rushed and really enjoyed the whole experience!
