Limo & Party Bus Comfort

If you’re one of the many Long Islander’s who spends more time out enjoying everything about the Island, you probably understand the importance of finding a limousine or party bus that is comfortable and can accommodate you. Seating is perhaps the most obvious element of comfort when you have more then 6 passengers. But there are other, more subtle factors for our winery tours.

Winery Tours - Wine Tastings Long Island

A well-thought-out element is how many passengers are going to be seated with you? Are they big? Are they small framed? Its not always cut and dry. Booking  a  10 passenger limo, when you only have 9 is not always the case. You should take into consideration all of the factors when choosing a limo or party bus for ground transportation. The most comfortable limousines are the super stretch ones like the Stretch SUV’S or even the party bus. When your considering a group winery tour. Our knowledgeable guides and drivers, combined with our luxurious, highest quality vehicles have made us the leader in idealistic staycation ideas to the East End of Long Island, NY.

Wine Tours Comparison on Long Island

Their are many companies offering Wine Tours now and you have to be careful whom you are choosing. Most are brokers looking to schedule a limousine or bus to make some money. When scheduling a vineyard tour ask the provider if you can have their address. This will alert you when they say they don’t do face to face bookings or scheduling.

Wine Tours Comparison on Long Island - LI Wine Tastings

Wineries VS Vineyards

May I state for the record that their is no difference between the two. Wineries are the same as vineyards. When scheduling a winery tour its the same as a vineyard tour. People just associate the word wine with wine tours but its a Vineyard or Winery that produces the wine with grapes grown on their property.

Long Island Wine Tasting

Wine tasting is the sensory examination and evaluation of wine. While the practice of wine tasting is as ancient as its production, a more formalized methodology has slowly become established from the 14th century on-wards. Modern, professional wine tasters (such as sommeliers or buyers for retailers) use a constantly evolving specialized terminology which is used to describe the range of perceived flavors, aromas and general characteristics of a wine. More informal, recreational tasting may use similar terminology, usually involving a much less analytical process for a more general, personal appreciation ( wine tours ). Results contradicting the reliability of wine tasting in both experts and consumers have surfaced through scientific blind wine tasting, such as inconsistency in identifying wines based on region and price.

Wine Barrel Fermentation

Wines can be barrel fermented in oak or placed in oak after fermentation for a period of aging or maturation. Wine matured in oak receives more oak flavors and properties than wine fermented in oak because yeast cells present in fermentation interact with and “latch on” to oak components. When dead yeast cells are removed as lees some oak properties go with them.

Characteristics of White Wine

Characteristics of white wines fermented in oak include a pale color and extra silky texture. White wines fermented in steel and matured in oak will have a darker coloring due to heavy phenolic compounds. Flavor notes commonly used to describe wines exposed to oak include caramel, cream, smoke, spice and vanilla. Chardonnay is a varietal with very distinct flavor profiles when fermented in oak, which include coconut, cinnamon and cloves notes.

Long Island Wine Tours - LI Wine Tastings

The “toastiness” of the barrel can bring out varying degrees of mocha and toffee notes in red wine.The length of time a wine spends in the barrel is dependent on the varietal and finished style the winemaker desires. The majority of oak flavoring is imparted in the first few months. The wine is in contact with oak, while longer term exposure adds light barrel aeration. This helps precipitate phenolic compounds and quickens the aging process.
