Nothing says "last-minute Memorial Day getaway" quite like a winery tour out east. We've done the homework with the top three Hamptons crush destinations, so get out there and sip something crisp.

WINE DOWN

1. WÖLFFER ESTATE WINERY
There's no denying that Wölffer's clean, dry rosé has made a splash on the market well beyond its Hamptons borders. So why not go to the source? The estate's rustic, Tuscan-style villa houses a lavish tasting room with imported stained glass doors and an expansive portico overlooking the grounds. Come by for a tasting or plan a visit around Wölffer's weekly events, drawing oenophiles far and wide. Tours of the vineyard are also available.

139 Sagg Road, Sagaponack

2. DUCK WALK VINEYARDS
Among the most well-known vineyards out east, Duck Walk is a staple for award-winning wine and boasts the largest tasting room in the area. Choose from five different wine pairing options in an individual format with parties of 7 or less, or go big with a large party appointment for groups of 8 or more.

231 Montauk Highway, Water Mill

3. CHANNING DAUGHTERS WINERY
Priding itself on hand-picking every single grape prior to meticulous juicing and fermentation, Channing Daughters is known for bold experimentation with flavor profiles and styles, making a statement in the East End. Tastings are available for individuals and small parties, and by appointment for groups of 7-10 guests.

1927 Scuttle Hole Road, Bridgehampton

STAY & PLAY

1. TOPPING ROSE HOUSE
22 elegantly appointed guest rooms and a glorious full-service spa? Say no more. Bridgehampton's finest in hospitality combines a rich history with modern luxury -- the perfect getaway for any discerning traveler, favored by celebrities and locals alike.

2. THE MAIDSTONE
East Hampton's one and only Scandinavian hotel has captured our hearts with its eclectic décor and robust personality. Choose from 19 eccentric rooms, each with a distinct personality, for the most colorful mini vacay this side of the water.

3. THE CAPRI
This recently renovated beauty is just days away from reopening its doors for the season. Classic sophistication meets perpetual beach culture in a curious combination of serenity and vibrance.
