  • Your Own Winery
    After traveling to vineyards throughout the United States and Canada during wine-tasting trips, Michele and Paul Crecca realized they could show others how to make their own wine. They founded Your Own Winery to share their passion and know-how with newcomers to the world of wine. Today, they help hobbyists produce and bottle more than 200 varietals of wine, including cabernets, pinot noirs, chardonnays, and pinot grigios. The staff will provide free samples to help students decide what kind of wine to make. It can be a tough decision, because winemaking is a six-to-eight week process that spans from primary fermentation to bottling. Each batch makes 28 bottles, and Michele and Paul even help their clients create custom labels, which have ranged from family photos and beloved pets to cherished pictures.

    Wine and dine at Palaia Vineyards in Woodbury. Sunny day plus appetite equals the perfect time to head to Palaia Vineyards.

Those searching for a quiet dinner scene may have better luck elsewhere, as the restaurant tends to get rather noisy. You may be better off finding a table during the week, as weekends at the restaurant tend to be packed. Driving to the restaurant is easy as pie, and parking surrounds the area. If cycling is more your speed, you'll find plenty of space to stash your bike outside the restaurant. Palaia Vineyards is a mid-priced establishment, with the average meal costing under $30.

  • Make Wine With Us
    John Gizzi and Diann Greco, the American Wine Society?certified wine judges at Make Wine With Us, teach wine aficionados to create their own wines using grapes harvested in Californian and Chilean vineyards. At the start of the nine-month process (California grapes in the fall, Chile grapes in the spring), winemakers-to-be assemble with fellow enthusiasts to learn the intricacies of the trade. Patrons learn to crush and destem grapes in a machine called a crusher-destemmer, named after the device's favorite Germanic metal band. Following the crushing process, a hydraulic press forces juice into barrels, where it shall remain until the conclusion of its sweet, sweet metamorphosis. At the end of the nine-month period, newly minted winemakers lean on family and friends to fill, cork, and custom-label the finished product. Budding vintners then tote home their vintages to share with family, friends, and robot butlers with built-in carafes.

  • Tomasello Winery at Abma’s Farm
    When Prohibition ended, Frank Tomasello didn't waste any time. One of the first in line for a winery license, he set to work turning his berry farm into a vineyard. Today, grapevines still flourish on his acres in the Outer Coastal Plain, and his grandchildren turn the fruits into wines that range from sweet whites to fruity reds infused with blueberry.

  • Coney Island Pizza
    Before settling into Coney Island Pizza, the eatery's dough-spinners manned Coney Island Catering, a mobile wood-fired oven that supplied pies for soirees and corporate functions. The team and its tools still hit the road for catering assignments and special events. For the most part, however, the oven remains in house, where it bakes specialty pizzas crowned with roasted clams, pulled pork, and pistachios. Besides pies, the oven roasts other bistro and pizzeria eats, from organic farm-raised Scottish salmon to hot wings tossed in sriracha lime sauce. Complemented exclusively with wines from the award-winning Ventimiglia Vineyard, feasts can end on sweet notes with housemade desserts, including seasonal cannoli filled with autumnal pumpkin or wintry snowballs.
