Back in the early summer of 1998, Jim Ferrarie and his family were traveling out to their summer home in Mattituck (the “heart of the North Fork wine country”) when Jim was struck with inspiration. Not only is the North Fork of Long Island one of the most beautiful areas in New York State, but the North Fork has some of the best wineries in the region. Why weren’t there tours offered to people that would take them to the different wineries to taste the wonderful wines and show people how the wine was made? It was then that Jim started Long Island Wine Tours, LLC.

For over ten years Jim and Long Island Wine Tours, LLC has successfully given tours to many grateful people. Our customers relax and enjoy the beautiful landscape while we do the driving (in vehicles that are regulated by NYS DOT authorities).
