Paumanok might not be as shiny or new as some of the other wineries in the North Fork, but it definitely makes some of the best and most interesting wines. You’ll need to navigate its early aughts-era website to make a reservation, but once you arrive, you can enjoy a glass or tasting inside, on the deck overlooking the vineyards, or lounged back in an Adirondack chair on the grass. Make sure to try the chenin blanc—it has notes of bananas and lemonade and is unlike anything else you can find at a Long Island winery.
