Shinnmap_1 Tomorrow at 3 p.m. I’m meeting Barbabar Shinn and David Page, owners of Shinn Estate Vineyards for a tour of their vineyard in Mattituck and to taste their wines, including a few reds and a Chardonnay.

I’ve been trying to schedule this tour/tasting for a while…so I’m glad that I can finally make it happen. Of course, it’s on a weekend that Nena has class…so I’ll be going solo instead of with my favorite wine tasting partner.

I’ll be writing a column for Dan’s Papers on my experiences Saturday…so keep an eye out for it.

David and Barabara are also the owners of Home Restaurant in the Village in NYC. Another place I’d like to check out sometime. They serve mostly New York State wines with a few Virginia vinos for good measure….
