Peconic winery makes TripAdvisor top 10 tours list

Sannino Bella Vita Winery in Peconic has been ranked third on TripAdvisor’s list of America’s Top 10 Winery Tours.

TripAdvisor, one the world’s largest travel sites, said it ranked vineyard tours across the country based on a simple but important criteria: “The opportunity for wine aficionados and novice tasters alike to enjoy sensational sips while learning the vine-to-wine story behind delicious vintages.”

Sannino Bella Vita took the third spot behind two California vineyards, Pride Mountain Vineyards in St. Helena and Hendry Ranch Wines in Napa. The Peconic vineyard beat out six other Califorinia wineries and one Wisconsin vineyard that made the list.

And you can take the top-ranked tour yourself. From now through Oct. 27, Sannino Bella Vita is offering winemaking tours, given by owner and winemaker, Anthony Sannino, every Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. Tickets are $25 and reservations are required. Call 631-734-8282 or email [email protected]
