Last weekend I strolled up to Basha Kill Vineyards to speak with Paul Deninno. What a wonderful place he has, tucked away in the BashaKill. Funny, driving up Route 17 and coming down the hill, before the exit, I saw that looked like wetlands that must have been carved out from a glacier. The next thing I knew I was driving through those wetlands to BashaKill.

I’d like to introduce you to Paul Deninno of BashaKill Vineyards, Sullivan County’s first winery, in part 1 of my interview.
