The trolley departs Riverhead at 11 a.m., conveying passengers along the country roads of the North Fork’s fertile wine region. Groups pause at three wineries, and one visit includes an in-depth winery tour. After the third winery, the trolley makes a stop at a small farm stand. The trolley returns to Riverhead around 3 p.m.
North Fork Trolley Company
Passengers lounge on the wooden benches inside the vintage red and green trolley, gazing through arched windows to watch the scenery pass. Though old-fashioned, this trolley isn't limited by rails; North Fork Trolley Company's drivers freely navigate the rolling country roads of Twin Forks and North Fork. On guided tours, they usher groups to the countryside's private wineries and vineyards, where they may stop for tastings, lunches, and in-depth tours that demystify the fermentation process and reveal which wines can give you the courage to ask if you can try a barrel on for size. Tours also roll into the scenic, historic villages of Greenport, Southampton, and Sag Harbor for sightseeing and walking tours. Upon request, the company can design personalized trolley charters for events such as weddings, birthdays, and family reunions.
