NEW YORK (PRWEB) – New York Wine Events is pleased to announce a new take on its popular Day Trip to Wine Country tours, offered Thursdays through Sundays from July 6 to November 15, 2020. The all-new Private Day Trip to Wine Country program offers private groups of 2-12 guests a safe, custom VIP tour experience all their own. All day trips provide private transportation with recommended health precautions in place as well as a completely private experience at the selected wineries. Customizing their day, guests get to select two featured wineries of their choice for tours to Long Island Wine Country or the Hudson Valley, plus have the option to include lunch. Additionally, all roundtrip transportation aboard luxury vans originates and returns to one location of the party’s choice, anywhere in midtown Manhattan from 23rd to 59th Streets. Guests also select their departure time. Arrival back in Manhattan is approximately 9 hours later.
Guided by knowledgeable wine connoisseurs adhering to social distancing practices and wearing masks, the private tours visit two award-winning wineries per excursion, sampling 4-5 selections at each. Spending an enjoyable 90 minutes at each winery, guests are hosted by winemakers and key vineyard personnel and gain first-hand insights into how the wine was made during friendly, informative chats and tastings with ample opportunity to ask questions.
Wineries included in this season’s Long Island tours include Jamesport Vineyards, Lenz Winery, Pellegrini Vineyards, Pindar Vineyards, and Sannino Vineyards. Hudson Valley wine tours include Benmarl Winery, Nostrano Vineyards, Robibero Winery, and Whitecliff Vineyard & Winery. An optional lunch (available for purchase at time of booking online) offers finger sandwiches including grilled local vegetables with a balsamic reduction on a baguette; fresh mozzarella with tomatoes, basil, and house-made pesto on semolina, and/or grilled antibiotic-free chicken with local romaine and house-made honey mustard on a rosemary roll.
“We understand that typically outgoing New Yorkers are in need of something fun to do after being homebound for so long. New York Wine Events created Private Day Trip to Wine Country tours to meet this need, with a fully private, safety-conscious VIP experience offering a relaxing, educational day amidst the vines, tasting the best regional wines,” explains New York Wine Event founder Sam Kimball, curator of the personalized tour series. “What better way to get out in the open, taking in stunning scenery and enjoying some of New York State’s finest wineries in a private group setting, just a short trip from Manhattan.”
All tours include a local farm stand stop where freshly baked pies, fresh produce, and other treats are available for purchase. Additionally, the wineries will be offering bottles for purchase, discount packs, and wine club memberships so guests can continue to enjoy their favorite wines at home.
Tours take place rain or shine. Guests can savor their VIP experience in comfort, in a private area designated for the group, safely distanced from other patrons. All guests must be 21 or older, no exceptions.
Private Day Trip to Wine Country bookings are available now, ranging $149-$249 per person, depending on the number of people in the private party. Check web site for special weekday discounts. Accommodations can also be made for larger groups of 13 or more; inquiries welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org. All tours must be booked at least 48 hours in advance.
