When the founders of Clovis Point Winery first laid eyes on the 10-acre plot of North Fork farmland, they knew they had found the perfect spot to transform their vision of a boutique winery into a reality. The plot hit everything on their checklist—sun-swept fields, accessibility, and a picturesque 1920s potato barn that would later be transformed into a tasting room complete with mahogany doors, bluestone floors, and a heated patio overlooking the vineyards. The barn isn't Clovis Point Winery's only nod to the past. According to the New York Times, which lauds the winery as “emblematic of the versatility of some East End boutiques,” the name stems from stone spear tips believed to originate from the Clovis people, a tribe of Indians who inhabited North Fork during the Paleolithic Age.
Today, the winery has grown to span 15 acres of merlot, cabernet franc, and chardonnay vines, which winemaker John Leo ferments into award-winning wines. He also maintains the founders' original vision of keeping production on a smaller scale, producing only 2,000 cases per year to ensure that each bottle has the interesting flavors and easy-going personality reflective of its small-town upbringing.
Ahi seared tuna over soba noodles. Teriyaki chicken skewers. Oriental chicken dumplings. Items like these aren’t found at the typical Mexican restaurant, but they fit right in at Agave’s Tequila Bar & Lounge, where a quick glance at the appetizers makes the eatery’s culinary twist clear: Mexican food, with an Asian influence. There’s no shortage of traditional south-of-the-border favorites, but on the whole, Agave’s chefs turn things up a bit when it comes to their tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, offering customers fillings beyond the usual ground beef and grilled piñatas—for example, fried Montauk flounder, sautéed tiger shrimp, and grilled sesame tuna. The house specialties deliver as well, with everything from traditional seafood paella to tuna bronseado splayed across rice beneath a crown of Asian slaw.
However, there's no mixing of cultures when it comes to Agave’s drinks. As a tequila bar, the eatery is, of course, known for flights of Don Julio, Partida, and Corzo, and bartenders also muddle fresh margaritas on the spot. Patrons can enjoy their sips amid the glow of NFL games every Sunday and Thursday, or head upstairs and dance to live salsa and reggae music.
From the road, passing cyclists glimpse rows of grapevines stretching across gently sloped hills and converging at the horizon under a beaming midday sun. The scene could easily be mistaken for Northern California or another storied wine-producing region, but it's how a normal day looks around Long Island?s North Fork area, where more than 50 wineries call the rolling vineyards their home.
Guides at Vintage Bicycle Tours bring two-wheeled travelers into the heart of the area?s wineries?as well as its many farm stands, boutiques, and views of Peconic Bay?through their signature bike tours and customizable ? la carte tours. Passionate about both wine and cycling, guides supply visitors with thirst-quenching narration and all equipment, including a choice of Kent tandem comfort bikes for two or Diamondback mountain-comfort hybrid cycles. Alternatively, Vintage Bicycle Tours permits riders to bring their own bikes or all-terrain unicycles.
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.
Colleen Barrow has spent her entire lifetime seeking out and memorizing the coordinates of the most scenic sights dotting British Columbia's Southern Gulf Islands. Rather than trapping them in a photo album or enormous snow globe, the local explorer shares her finds with guests through ITT Wilson's Tours. By partnering with Wilson's Transportation, Barrow coordinates luxury bus tours to castles, lighthouses, botanical gardens, and wineries. With many of the tours, guests receive a midday meal such as rustic oven pizza served at an apple-orchard picnic site, or mutton legs aged to perfection in a castle's meat cellars.
