TO MAKE OUR WINES we tie vines to trellises, we anxiously await the arrival of Spring, pull hoses with our hands, lift bins of grapes, gently fill bottles and cheerfully bring our wine to you.
Join us at Applewood Winery, in the heart of the historic Hudson Valley! Come discover the oldest working farm in Orange County and one of the oldest west of the Hudson River. The Hull family and their friends began planting apple and peach trees in former pastures in 1949. In 1994 the winery was created and vineyards planted. Remarkably, the vistas from the vineyards today have changed little from the time before George Washington was born.
When we first started making wine we had two goals in mind: Making some really great quality wines and having as much fun as possible doing so. We want to share our passion for wine with you and make it an easy, enjoyable experience for you, your friends and your family. Wineries in the Hudson Valley invite you to slow down. Take time to enjoy wine, and yourself. When you visit Applewood you get to taste wine right where it comes from.
You’ll find we champion the underdogs of the wine world. Come look beyond the culture of Merlot as synonymous with red and Chardonnay with white, reducing wine to a franchise with no uniqueness or sense of place. You’ll find plenty of true connoisseurs in the tasting room of Applewood. People who know what they like and don’t need some wine critic’s review to justify it. The wine is not expensive or French, and you don’t need to know an insider to get it, which may disappoint some folks…
We talk about food constantly in our tasting room, almost as much as we talk about our wines. It’s difficult to mention one without the other. Instead of “just talk” we offer a universe of wine experiences, food pairing weekends, tasting classes, a Summer Café and of course you can just hang out and enjoy the wine and listen to live music in the courtyard.
It gives all of us at Applewood Winery great pleasure to share with you our harvest of wine. Newcomers to the world of wine learn in a comfortable setting and even the most jaded imbiber will find a rich and complex tasting experience.
Naked Flock, our line of true Hudson Valley Hard Ciders has taken flight. We are proud to be part of the Craft Beverage Movement in the Hudson Valley.
In addition to our Original, Draft, and Pumpkin Ciders we are releasing a Citra-Cider (made with Citra hops) later this spring – a crisp taste with a burst of citrus and a subtle, hoppy bite. A Currant Cider that exhibits a sweet/tart taste of fresh pressed currants, will follow.
Naked Flock is now available in bars, restaurants and shops across New York State.
