This is an invitation to join me at the Dubliner Irish Pub, 796 Main Street, Poughkeepsie on Monday June 13 as we explore the white wines of the Hudson Valley.  I want to thank Brendan Daly of the Dubliner to being open to Hudson Valley wines for his Monday night seminar series.

Unfortunately I had to limit the wines being tasted to 8.  I did want to include some fruit wines like Brookview Station’s Whistle Stop White and some more Hudson Valley hybrids like Adair’s Cayuga and Vidal.  Hopefully if all goes well, there will be more Hudson Valley Wine seminars.

On the tasting table Monday night will be:

Milllbrook Vineyards & Winery:   2010 Tocai Friulano and   2010 Unoaked Chardonnay
Clinton Vineyards:   2009 Tribute
Whitecliff Vineyards & Winery:   2010 Awosting White and  2010 Chardonnay Reserve (oaked chard)
Robibero Family Vineyards:  Serendipity
Benmarl Winery: Traminette
Stoutridge Vineyards: Ridge White

We will discuss the wines, the grapes, the blends and the region.  Brendan will prepare from the kitchen a nice tapas plate for each of us.

The cost is $20 and includes the wine and tapas.  For reservations please call the Dubliner at 845.454.7322

Hope to see you there.
