I’ve been thinking for a few weeks how to write this post. It is with great sadness that I bring this news to you. Rivendell Winery closed its doors the end of December 2008.

Rivendell Winery was one of the founding members of the Shawangunk Wine Trail. Bob Ransom and Susan Wine have done a great deal for Hudson Valley Wines and New York Wines. They opened Vintage New York with a stores in SoHo and the Upper West Side. These two stores have also been closed.

As I can explain to you the issues that surround their closing, I think it’s best if you visit their website and read for yourself. http://tinyurl.com/7z8nrl

I wish them the best and hope to see them re-open in the future.
