WITH A FOUR-GENERATION HISTORY of fruit growing in New York’s Hudson Valley, Nostrano Vineyards is among the newest grape producers in the region. But don’t let the newness fool you. Grape and tree-fruit growing has been a tradition of the Trapani family since 1943 when Joseph and Benjamin established J&B Trapani Fruit Growers. The farm originally produced nearly 120 acres of grapes, apples, and pears, as well as raspberries, currants and cherries. Seventy years after Benjamin Trapani moved his family from Brooklyn, New York, the farming tradition is continuing to the fourth generation as Joseph Sr.’s grandson, Nicolas Bozzo, established Nostrano Vineyards on the family farm in 2010.
Nostrano Vineyards—nostrano in Italian translates to “of our own,” "local,” or “homegrown”— is a family-run vineyard and boutique winery producing mainly estate wines. Our vineyard is planted with Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, as well as Baco Noir, Frontenac, and Concord. In addition, we have three varieties of seedless table grapes: Canadice Red, Somerset, and Einset.
At Nostrano Vineyards our lush and strategically plotted vineyards are planted in grid formation permitting an ideal and efficient work environment. As grapes do not tolerate “wet feet,” all of the vines on the property utilize a trickle irrigation system to allow optimum watering schedules during the droughts and hot spells of the Hudson Valley’s summer months. This allows us to regulate the vines’ water intake and also be sustainable – having little to no water waste.
In addition to the vineyards, we have preserved and restored many of the apple varieties planted at Nostrano. We have an abundance of Red Delicious, Gala, Jona Mac, Cameo, Honeycrisp, and the oldest variety, Wine Sap Stayman. In the future, we plan to use apples from the 45+ year-old Stayman apple trees to produce a Family Original Hard Cider. At Nostrano Vineyards we are passionate about our local resources and farm-totable foods. With an abundance of fruit and vegetables, and a warm comforting ambiance, the vineyard's tasting room allows you to enjoy the breath-taking views down the valley, overlooking the natural beauty of the estate.
The beauty of the property has made it a wonderful location for events to take place. At Nostrano Vineyards, our desire is to provide the perfect venue for your wedding or special event.
