The Harmony Vineyards tasting room is located in an old farmhouse with a great water view on the north shore of mainland Long Island. Navigating through the winding and narrow wooded backroads of St. James, we made our way to Harmony Vineyards on a hot summer day. It was almost 90 degrees outside. We were given a choice between different vintages of Harmony’s chardonnay or bordeaux blend red to make up each of our 3-tasting flights.

The bartenders were very knowledgeable and helped guide our choices. The 2013 Stellar Reserve chardonnay was the preferred white for our white wine drinkers, as it closely resembled a pino grigio – the 2011 was a bit drier. As someone who personally prefers sauvignon blanc and reisling, I found the 2011 Bordeaux Blend was the least dry of the reds and our red wine drinker preferred the 2010 bordeaux blend, as she said it was was heavier and the taste lingered.

There was live music outside on the terrace, which overlooked the water past rolling hills. The tasting room also offered cured meat and cheese plates and the entire indoor-outdoor space is a nice retreat, with a great atmosphere, especially if you enjoy chardonnay and bordeaux-type reds. They also serve beer and non-alcoholic drinks.
