Spring 2020

Imagine it. Lounging with friends on a sunny patio, taking in the sun’s warmth, enjoying pastoral views, sipping a new-to-you beverage that you love. It’s the stuff of a perfect spring afternoon.

Unfortunately in the days of COVID-19, this daydream is postponed, just like some of our favorite events. Getting out to visit the Hudson Valley’s craft beverage makers is one of the warm weather activities we look forward to, and when the time is right, you can bet we’ll be back out there with you.

We are committed to bringing you the next print issue of Hudson Valley Wine Magazine in the summer, as always. Until then, as you hunker down indoors for the next few weeks, wash your hands, keep your social distance, treat yourself to a delicious drink, and stay well.

We’ve got some ideas to help you weather these uncertain times
and support the community:
