012 PROVED TO BE AN EXCITING YEAR filled with growth, expansion and new beginnings, especially with our 175th Anniversary just around the corner (2014). The inauguration of Grand Monarque Hall in November of 2011 set the stage for a year of beautiful weddings here in the Hudson Valley. We were able to host the nuptials of many couples from all over the country who wanted the unique look and feel that only America's Oldest Winery can provide. Grand Monarque Hall is proving to be the crown jewel of Brotherhood's property and THE premier destination for a wedding in the Hudson Valley. We are looking forward to another year of special moments shared with loved ones with style and sophistication in our beautiful location.
Our Brotherhood “Village” has also been updated. New way finding signage has been added to each of our outbuildings to help guide you through the facility. The installation of “gaslight style” lampposts light your way after dusk through our courtyard and walkway down to the cobblestone patio and giant tree. Our demonstration vinyeard has a lovely path to a gazebo where you can share a moment to linger around budding grapevines of vinifera and Hudson Valley hybrid grape varieties.
Our winemaking facility is also a great example of the magic that comes from blending young and old. We celebrated the arrival of several new stainless steel tanks and new American oak barrels. The new barrels are comprised primarily of medium toast with a few that have a heavy toast. The artistry of making wines using gentle aging in older barrels and blending with young wines in new oak combine to give Brotherhood more range in our techniques for our traditional wines and new programs.
Now that winter is behind us and cabin fever can finally be relieved, we are open seven days a week for that trip out-andabout to experience Hudson Valley culture, cuisine and wine tasting! Our tours and tastings run full schedule from April through December from 11am to 5pm Sunday through Friday, and 11am to 6pm on Saturday. Tours begin as groups gather, so stop by and sign up for the next tour at your leisure. (Groups larger than 20 people are by appointment only.) Also, in our tasting room, you will also notice a flare for the contemporary, with the choice of a stemless tasting glass or traditional wine glass with a stem. No matter how you like to swirl, sniff and savor, we have a variety of vessels in which to do so! Our gift shop also is a menagerie of accessories, décor, apparel and knick-knacks, great for last minute presents or hostess gifts.Our millennial fans will appreciate our presence on various social media outlets.

This surprisingly dry, white wine offers bright aromas of fresh lime, tropical fruit and has a light mineral quality. Very crisp, with the mouthwatering taste of Granny Smith apples, it is well-balanced with a lingering finish.PINOT NOIR
This wine is light brick red in color, has a nose of fresh berries and plums with a hint of violets. It also displays bright fruit flavors of cranberry, cherry and black tea which create a light-to-medium bodied wine with a layered complexity staying true to form.SWEET LOLLY RED
Introducing a wine that is meant for good times, casual get-togethers and girls' night out! This wine was made for the fun, flirty and fruity flavors that know how to have a party on your palate! Serve this chilled with your favorite BBQ foods and best friends!
