Wine Make Experience...

WOW! This was a great experience with my daughter! Initially a Christmas gift from my husband, we chose Sunday, 6/23 for our wine making adventure. What a treat, What a memorable experience! The owner Anthony was FABULOUS, had a great personality and truly understood his craft! After learning how to create our own bottle of wine through learning different wine tastes and smells, we both made a spectacular bottle of wine to bring home and will sit pool-side in a few weeks to enjoy!!! Hands down, we would go back in a heart beat!!! Every detail in the gift was delivered and the vineyard knocked it out of the park!

Long Island Wine-Making Experience

My girlfriend booked a wine-making experience, as a gift, through Xperience Days for me. We went to Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard out in Peconic, NY on May 19. Anthony was a great host. The experience was great. Other than the weather, I have no complaints. I would recommend going during the late summer in order for you to see the growth of the canopies.
