I’m back! I know, you missed me terribly. I can tell. I just know these things. If you weren’t in Long Island this past weekend, let me tell you, you REALLY missed out. Absolutely amazing fall weather. I wish I had brought a light jacket, but I survived. 70s and breezy, it was just beautiful. But you don’t want to hear about me and the weather, you want to know about the wine.
I love Brooklyn, but I love the fall and harvest much more. As we get into September and October, you’ll rarely find me in Brooklyn or any of the five boroughs on the weekend. I try to escape the city as much as possible, get out to the country, see the leaves and enjoy the fresh air. This weekend, we’re off to Long Island.
By now, you know that I love wine. I especially love local wine! So we make a point of visiting NY wineries whenever we can including two trips to the Long Island’s North Fork twice a year. Over the years we’ve probably visited almost every winery (that has tasting rooms) in Long Island, and also sampled wines from smaller vineyards. One often underrated winery that my husband and I have fallen in love with is the Lenz Winery.
