These are busy times in Hudson Valley Wine Country. This past weekend was the opening of the Hudson-Berkshire Beverage Trail and now this upcoming weekend is the Shawangunk Wine Trail’s Pasta Primo Vino.
Pasta Primo Vino is a great way to introduce yourself to the Shawangunk Wine Trail wineries, celebrate Spring and Bud Break all for one low ticket price of $22 plus tax. That one price allows you tasting at all 11 wineries on the Shawangunk Wine Trail for the day and they will each be offering free samplings of a pasta dish. The event runs from 10am to 6pm – so you have 8 hours to taste at 11 wineries if you choose to visit all of them.
Here is what they will be serving:
Adair Vineyards – Spring Orzo Salad.
Applewood Winery – Rigatoni Provencal
Benmarl Winery – Gnocci with sage & Butter sauce
Brimstone Hill – Pasta Provencal
Glorie Farm Winery – Kicked up Mac & Cheese
Whitecliff Vineyards – Pasta Fagioli
Warwick Valley Winery – Lasagna Bolgnese & Vegetarian Lasagna
Palaia Vineyards – Penne Chicken Pesto Ragazzi
Stoutridge Vineyards – American Cold Pasta Salad
Brotherhood Winery- Orzo Pasta with wild mushrooms, herbs and truffle oil
Baldwin Vineyards – Baked Four Cheese Pasta
I am sure many of the wineries will have some of their new releases available, especially the 2009 whites. I encourage you to purchase you tickets in advance. Advance ticket sales end April 15 at 6pm. Tickets sold at the door will be at a higher cost.
I am looking forward to hear about your experiences on the trail during Pasta Primo Vino. Here is a look at some of my experiences from the event.
