Anne & I took the ferry from Bridgeport, CT (Just about 25 miles from Stamford) to Port Jefferson Long Island. It's about an hour cruise & on October 21, 2012 it was an absolutely beautiful journey across Long Island Sound. We were in Port Jeff in about an hour. We were met by an old friend & proceeded to wine country.
Along the way we happened upon the Cooperage Inn which was having fall festival event. Live music (good band that name goes unremembered.) I had the half rottisirie chicken, Anne had a bratwurst & our friend, Patty, had the pulled pork. Everything was great. Anne drank an Octoberfest brew, Patty was driving & had a hot non-acoholic cider & I indulged in 2 local chardonnays.
On to Martha Clara Vineyards. Great space, also live music & a wonderful tasting.
Go while the weather is still good. This is a great day trip.
