Experience the Vineyards of NY’s North Fork by Bike

New York - Laurel Lake Winery

Biking | Food & Drink | United States

August 15, 2016 by Andrew Gavin

A trip that was initially for a daily deal bike tour through the North Fork Wine Country on Long Island, NY turned into a relaxing weekend away.  Biking between vineyards has many advantages and if you get the opportunity, stay at Jason’s vineyard on Airbnb.  An affordable and centrally located apartment is directly above an active winery which offers the convenience of a winery at your fingertips.

New York - Jasons Vineyard

@ Jason’s Vineyard; looking for a place to stay in the North Fork can be pricey, but we found this place on Airbnb.com and had a great stay.
Nothing like getting back to your place of rest from your wine tour and having access to another tasting room.

The Nights Are Dark So A Place With An Area To Sit Outside And Stargaze Is A Plus

New York - Jasons Vineyard

@ Jason’s Vineyard; stargazing in New York City is a rarity, so getting away and getting clear skies is amazing

Look For A Dinner Spot That Features Local Sea Food And Produce

New York - Noahs Greenport

@ Noah’s in Greenport; the meal was amazing and they had a good selection of local wines to try.
This is how we found our favorite wine of the trip and caused us to search for the tasting room the next day.
