East End Winery Tour November 2014

by Roger on Dec.05, 2014, under Club News


Bill Writes:
Sunday, November 16th marked the annual return of a favorite Empire Car Club event: the Long Island Winery Cruise. Now enjoying its fifth year, this East End driving event is always reliably popular with the membership for two reasons. For one, it is the last “driving destination” event of the year, providing a great reason for our members to drive their classic cars one last time before we hibernate our vehicles for the long winter. Secondly, who can resist joining their fellow club members for a scenic drive through winding East End roads and stopping off for a winery visit, a hearty lunch and always a perfect spot (or maybe two) for a fabulous photo featuring both car and owner. The 2014 edition of the LI Winery Cruise offered all these features and more.

Long Island Winery Cruise & Luncheon: 11/13/11

by Roger on Dec.02, 2011, under Outing

Our group met up at the Exit 63 Park & Ride for coffee and car talk. Eventually we marshaled into formation for a leisurely (Peter leading the way) cruise out East to the Old Field Winery in Southhold where we were given an extensive tour of the grounds, lessons on winemaking and tasting, homemade orthopedics and an impromptu car care clinic with “Chicklet”, a Studebaker who was having a very very bad day. Afterwards it was on to Claudio’s in Greenport to warm up and have a nice lunch.

Thanks to Peter Lauria for organizing the event, John Popeleski for the photography and Sam and Mike for everything else!
