This weekend is the Hudson Valley Wine Festival at the Dutchess County Fair Grounds in Rhinebeck NY.   I will be there at the Hudson Valley Wine Country booth so please stop by and say hello.

The Hudson Valley Wine Festival is a great event.  There are wineries from the Finger Lakes and Hudson Valley that attend this festival. There is a nice variety of wines to taste and non wine vendors to purchase early Christmas presents from.

Visit these Hudson Valley Wineries at the festival:

  • Brotherhood, America’s Oldest Winery
  • Brimstone Hill Vineyard
  • Brookview Station
  • Cascade Mountain Winery
  • Cereghino Smith Winery
  • El Paso Winery
  • Glorie Farm Winery
  • Palaia Vineyards
  • Pazdar Winery
  • Warwick Valley Winery
  • Whitecliff Vineyard & Winery (be nice to my daughter, their cashier for the event – wish her Happy Birthday, her B-day is Monday)
Some of my favorite Finger Lakes Wineries to visit are:
  • Atwater
  • Hazlitt (ok, my mother-in-law loves their Red Cat, but I like their vinifera wines)
  • Heron Hill Winery
  • McGregor Winery
  • Swedish Hill (actually they won the Governor’s Cup – so see if they have their Riesling Sparkling wine to taste)

Tickets to the festival are $30 and there is a $50 two day ticket available.  You can purchase tickets at .  I hope to see some of you at the event.
