Finally! Long Island Wine in a Box

6 Jun

Alleluyah! A local solution to those summer activities where you can’t have glass bottles or glassware of any kind (think the pool, the hot tub, the camp site or the boat)!

The tasting room in East Hampton (see me in the window?)

I try to keep my food and beverages as local as I can (as local as my own backyard garden when possible), so it’s been a small frustration that on Long Island camping trips I have had to resort to boxed plonk from far-flung regions instead of drinking the local stuff. Ask and ye shall receive; I was very happy to learn that Lieb Cellars here on Long Island is now boxing their Bridge Lane blends.

I stopped by the East Hampton tasting room on my way to beach camping in Montauk last week, and was very pleased to walk out with a box of very tasty red and some bonus stemless govino shatterproof reusable glasses. Read about how it went with the Bridge Lane Red Blend here, in my latest blog post for Edible Long Island!

Thanks to Laura and Ron at the tasting room for helping me set up this shot!

P.S. This is not a paid endorsement nor did I receive any free stuff. It’s a true delight piece!
