This weekend is the Bounty of the Hudson Wine Festival.  This year it is being held at Warwick Valley Winery in Warwick NY. New this year – each of the Shawangunk Wine Trail wineries will be paired with a restaurant that will be preparing samples to pair with their wine. The restaurants will also be selling food as I understand it.  Here are the restaurant – winery pairings: Chumleys BBQ paired with Adair Vineyards; Jean Claudes Bakery paired with Applewood Winery; Bellvale Creamery paired with Baldwin Vineyards; Nobel Pies paired with Brimstone Hill Vineyards; Chef Shaun paired with Brotherhood Winery; Lady Finger Bake Shoppe paired with Glorie Farm Winery; Storm King Eatery paired with Palaia Vineyard; Sprout Creek paired with Stoutridge Vineyards; Landmark Inn (one day) Iron Forge Inn (one day) paired with Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery; Cafe Mio paired with Whitecliff Vineyard and Winery.

This is the only festival featuring only Hudson Valley Wines in one place. Save $5 on your wine taster tickets by using code HVWG (only good on advance ticket sales). This will be the last time I will be able to offer you specials for Shawangunk Wine Trail events.  So please take advantage of it.

There will be chef demonstrations this year by Chef Janet of the French Culinary Institute and music by E’lisa Jones on Saturday and Tim O’Donohou and the TMU Band on Sunday.

Other attending wineries are Millbrook Vineyards & Winery, Pazdar Winery, Robibero Winery, Cereghino Smith Winery, Clinton Vineyards, Hudson-Chatham Winery and Cascade Winery.
