Althrough the heart of Long Island Wine Country is the North Fork, the Hamptons boasts a few vineyards and wineries that are easy to reach from a Hamptons resort location. The climate in the Hamptons tends to favor white wine grapes, which go wonderfully with the lighter fare and seafood typically enjoyed during the summer season, but you will find delicious reds as well. Look for paint and sip parties, live music and other activities to fill a day that is not spent at the beach.
