Wine and Dine with us!
For over three decades Island Bound Limousine has been offering Wine and Dine Tours of some of the most beautiful vineyards on the East Coast. Your chauffeur will be there to help you make the most of your day. When you arrive at the first vineyard you will already know some of the properties of different wines and have a background in local winemaking history.
This is a perfect choice for birthday and bachelorette parties as well as a unique way to entertain your local friends or out-of-town guests. We offer a variety of limouisne packages for different group sizes. There are different lunch or dinner options as well. Some wineries offer hamburgers and such while others boast full dinner menus. Side trips to nearby restaurants or catered picnic lunches are also available.
There is no safer or more enjoyable way to experience a day wine tasting than riding in the back of one of our beautiful limouisnes.

When you taste wine what are you experiencing? What is it that you like about this wine? First of all, no one answer is correct but to better enjoy wine it helps to understand it.
Wine has four main components:
~ The first component is flavor. Wines named after a grape (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir etc.) must have a majority of the named grape in the wine. Many other wines are a blend of several grapes.
~The second component is sweetness or dryness. Take a long sip and consider how sweet it is and what type of sweetness it has. Does it remind you of a type of fruit, or maybe vanilla? Do you taste sugar?
~ The third component is acidity. Many people consider a wine with high acid and a bit of sweetness to be complicated. Many fine white wines have an acidity component.
~ The last component is tannin. Tannin can come from the oak barrel that the wine is aged in or may come from the grape skins. Too much tannin can make wine difficult to drink but in time it may mellow and become one of the most desired and valued wines. Don’t be afraid to smell, swish and even chew your wine. This allows all parts of your taste buds and nose to enjoy the wonderful flavors found in our local wines!
