So, whether you’re craving their summery 2014 ‘Entre-Deux-Mers’ Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend or a sample of their 2013 Seneca Lake Cabernet Franc, you'll be in for an affordable treat. Just be sure to get there between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. (with the last tasting starting at 5:30 p.m.)
Next, forget trekking up to the Cape, because Brooklyn’s got you covered on coastal crab shacks. Nestled at the tip of Red Hook, Brooklyn Crab is all about the summer vibes—with views of the New York harbor, beachy accouterment, and natural pine. Go for the standout favorites, like their head-on peel n’ eat shrimp and snow crab roll Just be sure to grab a window seat by the water or out front on the deck to elevate the experience.
