Black Bear Winery
Black Bear Winery bus transports passengers from the bustle of Manhattan to the quiet idylls of upstate vineyards. Melissa leads each expedition, usually to and from Black Bear Winery—a winemaking facility nestled among the trees and hills of Chenango Forks just north of Binghamton. In a fully furnished private room, the winery's staff guides visitors through tastings of all-natural fruit wines, which are made from fruits such as black currants, red raspberries, and gooseberries instead of fake plastic grapes. Melissa's visits also include pairings with local cheeses and, occasionally, a group lunch around the communal table.
