VIP Blending Session

What wine lovers haven’t dreamed of making their own perfect bottle, just to their taste? Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard offers the perfect chance to do just that. Vineyard owner and winemaker Anthony Sannino offers a couple the chance to tour his winery, taste a range of Long Island wines, learn about the winemaking process, enjoy a light lunch, and then create your own blend from barrel samples.

You could say Mr. Sannino has wine in his blood — his grandparents made wine in Italy before immigrating to Brooklyn in the early 20th century. Since starting to make his own wines in 2009, he has received accolades for his North Fork Merlot and Chardonnay.

Enjoy a great day learning about life as a vintner, and come home with a bottle of your own exclusive blend to share with friends and savor the memories. The cost is $225 per person for the exclusive VIP blending class from 12-3 pm. You may want to consider staying at the bed and breakfast inn on the property, in case you want to eat, drink and sleep wine.
