Luxury buses depart Penn Station at 10:30 a.m., then head through dazzling fall or early-winter scenery toward the Pennsylvania Wine Trail. After breakfasting on freshly baked bagels, croissants, or pastries, passengers will get the chance to stretch their legs and their tongues with an included tasting at a winery that includes tasting five to seven award-winning wines with accompanying hors d'oeuvres, such as spinach pastry puffs, mini quiches, bourbon chicken, and more. Winemaking and cellar tours take oenophiles deep into the journey from vine to bottle as the festive sounds of live musicians drift across the grounds or through the tasting room. Once it’s time to go, wine discounts for tour guests make it easy to tote home as many bottles as they can carry. The bus arrives back in Manhattan by 7 p.m.
The organizers behind SunFull Adventures delight in taking Manhattanites out of the city for outdoor adventure. In the summer, groups set off for mountain hikes, lake kayaking, and historic cave expeditions. In autumn and winter, luxury buses depart for full days of wine tasting and food nibbling in landscapes of rolling hills, deep forests, and farmland. Guides also arrange expeditions further afield to such exotic locales as Costa Rica, Hawaii, Europe, and Pennsylvania.
