When you visit the Long Island Wine Region, you share in the pride that we have for our people, our land and the culture that make us unique. A visit to the East End demonstrates the close, seasonal connection between land and table as wonderful local products are picked, harvested or produced daily and displayed at the height of ripeness, perfectly complimenting our wines.
Spend a fascinating day at the Eagle’s Nest estate of William K. Vanderbilt II, heir to one of America’s greatest fortunes. Drive through the elegant iron gates and view the same stunning panorama of Northport Bay and Long Island Sound that delighted Mr. Vanderbilt when he arrived each summer. His mansion and museum, set on 43 rolling acres, will take you back to the celebrated era of the Gold Coast.
