Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Bask in the power of belief with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get an all-day jazz and wine tour for two in Long Island from Hampton Luxury Liner (a $350 value). The tour includes:
- Breakfast served onboard
- Transportation to Pindar Vineyards with tastings of five wines and a complimentary glass of one
- Transportation to Duck Walk Vineyards with tastings of five wines
- Transportation to Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard with a glass of wine and a three-hour live jazz music performance<p>
Tours take place on Saturdays starting February 11, 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.
Hampton Luxury Liner’s well-appointed coach buses ferry pairs of passengers on wine-tasting adventures that include onboard breakfast and snacks and stop at three Long Island wineries. Each jazz and wine tour begins with a sumptuous breakfast that guests enjoy on their way to Pindar Vineyards, Long Island’s largest vineyard. Guests tour Pindar’s 500-plus acres, counting firsthand the 17 types of grapes used to produce the vineyard’s 23 blends of wine. At Pindar, patrons enjoy a tasting of five varietals before leaving with a complimentary wineglass. Next, guests head to Duck Walk Vineyards’ two tasting rooms, where they’ll sample five aromatic blends in portioned sips or wine-doused mustache delivery systems. Passengers make their way to Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard last, where, with a glass of a full-bodied red wine in-hand, they enjoy three hours of live jazz music. Customers may purchase and eat lunch (not included in this Groupon) at the vineyard’s indoor wine bar, around 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.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Hampton Luxury Liner a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
