We have all heard it referred to as a “Man Cave.” But…Paul Deninno of Bashakill Vineyards is constructing a Wine Cave.  When I first met Paul a few years ago, just after he opened, he told me his plans were to build a cave in the hillside of his winery.  Congratulations to Paul as now he is in the midst of building his wine cave which will be 40 feet deep, 16 feet wine and 9 feet high when complete.

There will be room for 20 – 25 barrels and a tasting bar when complete.  Paul is looking forward to bringing his red wines to a new level by aging them in the cave.  Note: This year Paul’s Cabernet Franc called Black Bear won a Double Gold and best red wine in the Hudson Valley Wine Competition.  I was so proud of Paul!  Can’t wait to taste the wines a few years after they’ve been aged in the new cave.

Recently Elaina Athans from YNN interviewed Paul about the cave.  To view the video click here.
