Everything was wonderful from start to finish! The pickup location was easy to find and our driver was excellent through the city. Both wineries were fun, especially the free time to explore on our own. Also, the proportion of wine for tasting was more than usual, which was great to truly experience the taste. lIt was a stress-free day that was fun and relaxing. We also enjoyed the farm stand. Great tour overall

Loved this NY wine excursion to the Hudson Valley. I especially enjoyed the element of surprise at not knowing what wineries we would be visiting.Our ride to the HV and back was smooth, easy and extremely professional. Sam Kimball, also a wine shop owner in the North Fork, toured us through three unique experiences: two wineries and a lovely orchard and market.We were introduced to the local grapes used to make a variety of delicious wines upstate…I have a new appreciation for them all and especially enjoyed Seyval Blanc.We tasted a bone dry version at winery number 1 and an off dry blend of Seyval and Vignole at winery 2. It was great to be able to compare the two.Highly recommend the experience!

Great experience I would highly recommend! I was so impressed with the level of service and communication from the company, I accidentally left a pair of sunglasses on my tour and they were tracked and delivered back to me, thank you Sam!

A pleasant trip to 2 wineries and a farmers' market. Traveling through the farms and wineries of the East End of Long Island with a sommelier explaining the history of wine-making in NY was a fun experience.

Great experience, I highly recommend booking the wine tour and take in all the knowledge that Sam shares about the different wines along the way. You won't be disappointed.

What a day! As someone who works in the wine trade in the UK I was impressed by the whole day. Pick up was simple, the coach was clean with a lovely driver. Sam was a fantastic host, catering for all levels of knowledge within the group. Both of the wineries were very interesting with a lot to offer. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting NYC wishing to escape the city for a day.

Sam was an amazing tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and I felt I learned a lot about tasting wines by just being in his presence.

Sam was great! We had a large group and went to 2 wineries. The food and wine were both excellent, and the whole experience was enhanced by Sam's expertise. It was super convenient that we were able to get a bus to and from the city.

We attended the Tuscany 2022 and Sicily 2023 wine tours and they were fantastic! Sam is a great host and really knew how to maximize the enjoyment of everyone on the tour. He selected great wineries, restaurants and places to stay. He took us to places we would never have found on our own or on other tours. The selection of the local tour guides could not have been better. We have already signed up for 2024 Naples and 2024 Sardinia. I highly recommend Crush Wines Italy Tours!

My friends and I had a great time, exploring wine country on the North Fork of Long Island. Our sommelier was charming, knowledgeable, and not at all pretentious. If I had one wish, it would be to have a little bit more time at the first winery, perhaps to extend the tour by adding a third winery. Otherwise, no complaints at all. It was well worth the time and the money.

Had a great girls day trip to the North Fork with Crush Wine Tours. They kept us out of the rain while we enjoyed tasting and exploring the wineries. Sam is a great host and is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend touring with him. I am looking forward to the next experience!

My wife and I recently took the Wine Tour with Sam to Piedmont. The tour completely exceeded all our expectations. The coordination of all the buses to the dinners to the wineries were spot on. We also never felt rushed and had times where we could do our own exploring. Because the tour is small, we were about to visit locations and have our own private experiences. You cannot get this sort of VIP feel from a large tour. Nor would you be able to visit the locations by booking them yourself. Sam and his Italian guide Alice allows made you feel comfortable and welcomed. The cost was very reasonable considering the level of service, hotels, and locations visited. An excellent value all around. I urge you to take one of Sam's tours. His professionalism, knowledge of wines and the regions are unparalleled. Grazie!

A very well organized event. Very intimate.The meal was fantastic and so were the wines. Ridge and Biale are all stars. Worth every penny.

Food delicious and wines matched nicely BUT close to zero info presented about individual wines by Biale or Ridge. Also the sound level in the restaurant detracted from the evening

Wonderful day! Our bus driver Ricardo is amazing, Sam funny and knowledgable, the staff at the wineries great the wines delish and sandwiches yummy! Briermere was terrific too! One small suggestion, have more of each category of sandwiches, so you dont run out before everyone gets to choose. Quite a few people wanted turkey, but the caterer didnt give enough.Great day all in all!! Cant wait to plan Hudson next year!

I thought I knew a thing or three about Italy, Italian food and Italian wine. And there was a trip to Sicily in March this year - 2023. Was my arrogance exposed: I have learned that I did not know much about Italy after all. It was on this trip that I have learned that Italy as a country is younger than the USA, that Sicilian mafia had started as a citizens protection organization, and only in the last 100 years evolved into a criminal business, that Mama Aetna can be capricious, that Sicily -dare I say- is not really Italy! And wines of course, and winemakers: it was during that trip that I have developed an appreciation for Catarratto and Carricante (though I must admit, that I cannot find this special buket of tastes here in the US; I guess the magic of hot Sicilian sun is missing...). Great trip, great experiences for all the senses, and more.

Wonderful experience! The wines and lunch was well put together. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We even got to meet the owner of one of the wineries. I would highly recommend taking this tour!

I love this venue and have attended previous performances in the past such as Peter White with Vincent Ingala and Vincent Ingala with Lindsey Webster. It is such a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere. Lindsey Webster alone was fantastic. She has such a beautiful yet powerful voice. She is also very personable & interacts very well with the audience in such an intimate setting. Looking forward to attend more shows in the future, even though it is a bit of a drive from Queens, NY.
