Last weekend we headed to Long Island for what is becoming an annual tradition. We headed to Southampton this year with a bunch of friends and took advantage of the warm weather while it last, as well as the fire pit, and the grill.
Over the weekend we also visited a couple of wineries-Duck Walk and Wolffer Wineries, along with Blue Point Brewery, and Long Island Spirits.
A little bubbly to start The Grand tasting at Wolfeer. This brut was made in the méthode champenoise, and just my kind of sparkling with a hint of butter and not too sweet, but at $54 a bottle it was not in my price range.
A little cheese to go with the wine.
Next up, Duck Walk. The grounds weren’t nearly as pretty as Wolffer, but they had one of my favorite white wines on the island. I think we all ended up buying a bottle of South Hampton White.
The next day we went to the Blue Point Brewery for their 1pm tour. And apparently the first round of drinks are on the house so Ryan and I had a chance to taste 8 different beers (3 tastings each plus 2 others small pours from the bartender). Nothing really spoke to me. After taking a sip of each we mixed the white IPA with the Blueberry beer, it was actually my favorite (don’t judge ;)).
And last but not least the distillery, which was probably the least educational of the visits and the most expensive of all the tastings (well Blue Point was free!). But our group made the most of it and shared a couple of tastings, so about a sip of each.
Next up the food and the house.
