WONDERFULLY SWEEPING VISTAS of the Catskill and Helderburg Mountains are the scenic backdrop for the Brookview Station Winery at Goold Orchards, Rensselaer County’s first winery.
Our mission at the Brookview Station Winery is to craft the best Hudson River Valley wines, using the finest fruits and grapes grown at our family farm and from other Hudson Valley family farms. In doing so we acknowledge the vital economic impact of agriculture in the Hudson Valley and we honor those who work tirelessly to preserve the Valley’s tradition of the family farming.
The Brookview Station Winery story begins over a century ago. Goold Orchards, our home farm, was founded in April of 1910 when James and Bertha Goold arrived by rail at a small train station in Brookview, New York – the Brookview Station. Together they walked a mile to the farm they had recently purchased. Bertha, educated at Emma Willard in Troy and husband James, a recent graduate from Cornell, were eager to apply the latest in agricultural technologies on their new fruit farm.
In 2006 the farm grew again when third generation owners Sue Goold Miller and her husband Edward began making wine. That September they opened a tasting room at The Brookview Station Winery, aptly named to honor her grandparents and founders, James and Bertha Goold.
Brookview Station Winery is a founding member of the Hudson Berkshire Beverage Trail, New England’s most diverse interstate beverage trail, featuring wineries, a farm distillery and micro-brewery, looping from New York to Massachusetts. Guests traveling along the trail will be treated to farm stands, bakeries, creameries, gourmet restaurants and much more. This is truly a day trip not to be missed!
