Exploring Long Island Wineries, Breweries, Orchards, and Gardens

Our map isn’t large enough to list all the wineries in Long Island Wine Country or the abundance of breweries, but we’ve added a few to give you a “taste.” The same is true of the beautiful farms, orchards, and gardens. We hope this will give you a starting point for your exploration. 


Long Island features approximately 60 wine producers using a multitude of methods & styles to craft world-class wines you'll find in top restaurants across the U.S. and even internationally. Savor wine & food pairings, special vineyard events, & live music surrounded by grape vines flourishing amidst the rays of Long Island's sun & maritime air.

Along with amazing Long Island vineyards, craft brew tourism is also playing an important role locally. You will find breweries of excellence across Nassau and Suffolk counties. While our map shows a few possibilities, there are nearly 70 with many new openings. We feature some local brews right at the airport at Point Blue! Look also for Urban Pedal Tours, the Gold Coast Beer Festival, BucketListLI.com and GoingLocalTV’s Best Breweries Channel. The distillery trend is also taking hold on Long Island with craft spirits from master distillers gaining in popularity in both Nassau and Suffolk counties including The Better Man Distilling Co. in Patchogue and Montauk Distilling Co. in Riverhead.

Long Island is a lush paradise for flowers and farms. The connection between the land and the sea may surprise you and will definitely delight you! Take your social media photos amidst acres of lavender at Lavender by the Bay or the Waterdrinker Family Farm, which also offers fields of sunflowers in July and August. Local farm stands, Harbes Family Farm, White Post Farms, or Wickham’s Family Fruit Farm full of fun and flavors from spring to autumn. Long Island Game Farm is a family wildlife park and children’s zoo founded on a sense of hope and wonder.

Long Island orchards are also noteworthy, as are the festivals held each year at harvest time. While summer is often the most popular time to visit Long Island, the fall season is a favorite for many, with spectacular weather and beautiful autumn adventures. In the spring, look for the Mattituck Strawberry Festival. In winter, enjoy the Christmas Tree Farms, and the festive lights and holiday vibe. You’ll find unique experiences year-round on Long Island.
