A short ferry ride from New London to Orient Point leads visitors to lush farmland with views of the ocean. The Long Island Wine Trail has been growing since the 1970s and sports more than fifty wineries and 3000 acres of vines.
The vineyards are intimate and unique. Shinn Estate Vineyards is small, peaceful and quiet while the Bedell Cellars features a busy tasting room and large, outdoor patio.
