This season get out and find your new favorite winery or
distillery. In this issue there are more than twenty of them for
you to explore! No matter how you choose your new favorite,
you’ll find all the information you need on the following pages. If
sampling the latest releases or award-winning wines and spirits are
your thing, then “In the Spotlight” is a good place to start. Each
“spotlight” entry is submitted by the winemaker or owner and offers
their new or favorite “picks” for the season. If you like serious reds,
dessert wines or brandies, there are plenty to choose from. Tired of
the same old Chardonnay? The Hudson Valley has complex whites
and rosés to suit your palate.
And if you’re looking to make a day trip out of your visit, the Hudson Valley wineries have some great restaurants where you can enjoy chefprepared cuisine to go along with the wines. Or pack your own lunch, couple it with a bottle from the tasting room, and set out a picnic in the vineyard. You can probably catch a colorful sunset while lazily lounging on a deck chair too – the Hudson Valley wineries and distilleries offer it all.
If you enjoy listening to live music, there’s entertainment booked at the wineries almost every weekend this season. Or if you like to combine apple picking with your wine and spirits experience – there are destinations for just that. Interested in learning more about wine making or distilling? Then call ahead for a tour before you arrive. You might be curious about the new underground wine cave that’s currently under construction – one of the wineries has that too!
Whether you’re looking for a winery or distillery near your home, within an hour’s drive or somewhere in between, use the “Essentials” to help you plan your trip. You can even snap this code to get all the information you need delivered right to your iPad, tablet or smartphone, and make finding your new favorite even easier!
