Scenes of Newport & Wine Tasting
USD79 per person
Setting off from the pier, sit back and take in the city’s sights before heading along the famous Ten Mile Ocean Drive, renowned for its rugged beauty and the spectacular stretch of coastline. Your drive will also take you along Bellevue Avenue, where society’s millionaires built their famous ‘summer cottages’. You’ll pass by the palatial mansions, many of which have been beautifully restored to their original splendour by the Newport Preservation Society.
Afterwards, you’ll head to Portsmouth, home to Greenvale Vineyards, which has operated for 4 generations by the same Parker family. The estate grown fruit and award-winning wines are nurtured by an idyllic setting, rich history and commitment to the preservation of open space. The restored stables now serve as a tasting room, where you’ll be offered a selection of wines to sample.
