$149 for an All-Day Music-and-Wine Tour for Two ($350 Value)
Hampton Luxury Liner's well-appointed coach buses ferry pairs of passengers on wine-tasting adventures that include onboard breakfast and snacks and stops at three Long Island wineries. Each music-and-wine tour begins with a sumptuous breakfast that guests enjoy on their way to Pindar Vineyards, Long Island's largest vineyard. Pindar’s 500-plus acres boast 17 types of grapes that are used to produce the vineyard’s 23 blends, 5 of which the passengers will taste before leaving with a complimentary wineglass. Next, guests head to Duck Walk Vineyards’ two tasting rooms, where they will sample five aromatic blends in portioned sips. Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard is the last stop, and it pairs a glass of full-bodied red wine with three hours of live jazz, rock, and blues music. Customers may purchase lunch (not included with this Groupon) at the vineyard's indoor wine bar and eat it at one of the outdoor deck's heated tables or while partaking in an equestrian staring contest at Baiting Hollow Farm's pony and horse rescue.
Tours take place on Saturdays with pickup locations in New York City, Plainview, and Ronkonkoma between 9:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. Passengers return to their respective drop-off locations at approximately 4:30 p.m. Tours depart an hour earlier starting in July.
