Craft Beers and Exquisite Wines: A Toast to Long Island

Craft Beers and Exquisite Wines: A Toast to Long Island

September 23, 2022

Just 22 minutes from our hotel, Insieme Wines & Tasting Room is a charming boutique winery that produces all wines in-house and cultivates relationships with artisanal vineyards from California to New York. Less than an hour’s drive away, Del Vino Vineyards graces Long Island with the talents of Italy’s storied Giachetti Family, favored winemakers of King Ferdinand II. Farther northeast, Sparkling Pointe Vineyards and Winery is the top choice for discerning palates desirous of sparkling wines crafted according to the authentic méthode champenoise.


More in the mood for an ice-cold beer? Long Island also boasts around 60 local breweries and 50 taprooms. The new Long Beach Brewing Company taproom in Oceanside has made a huge splash with its innovative German and Belgian style brews. Another of our favorites, Barrier Brewing recently won acclaim as the Best Brew of New York State. Finally, Oyster Bay Brewing Company is not only one of Long Island’s most successful craft beer makers; it’s also just down the street from Theodore Roosevelt’s summer residence, making it the perfect stop for a refreshing pint as you take in the history of our incredible island.
