To pair wine with cheese in the Hudson Valley, locavores should embrace the concept of “what grows together, goes together”.
When the sun comes out to play in the Hudson Valley, our palates tend to follow suit. Thankfully, the producers here are in the mood for tinkering, too.
The owners of Palaia Winery are from the Woodstock generation and – as the peace symbol on all their labels attests to – they aren’t afraid to show it. A family run winery with a tasting room in a 200-year-old barn on land once owned by Aaron Burr, Palaia is affectionately known as the Hudson Valley’s “hippie winery.”
The Hudson Valley region is already noted for its wines produced from grape varieties such as Baco Noir, Seyval Blanc, and more recently, Cabernet Franc.
