Welcome to the premier issue of Hudson Valley Wine, the first publication dedicated to promoting the wines and winemakers of the nation's oldest wine-producing region, the spectacular Hudson Valley. This magazine will introduce you to a world of first-class wineries that have existed, some for over 100 years, nestled along the banks of the historic Hudson River, dotting the landscape along dusty, scenic roads.
With more and more Americans opting for wine instead of beer at the dinner table, it's no wonder Hudson Valley wines are gaining popularity throughout the country, and throughout the world. As you flip through these pages, you'll meet the winemakers whose vision, passion and determination produce these incredibly varied wines. From crisp Seyvals and bold Baco Noirs to exotic European varietals, Hudson Valley wines are winning awards - vintage after vintage.
To help preserve the natural resources that make the Hudson Valley so verdant and viable for grape growing and winemaking, we've opted to print on 100% post-consumer recycled paper made with electricity generated by windpower, manufactured just to our north in Cohoes, NY. Please do your part, be sure to pass this magazine along to a friend or colleague before you recycle.
So, join us on an exciting journey through the counties that are home to the extraordinary wineries that are putting Hudson Valley wines back on the map. I'm sure you'll find a great wine, and a great story.
