It’s spring time in the Hudson Valley and that means the Shawangunk Wine Trail is getting ready for their first event of the season ~ Pasta Primo Vino Saturday & Sunday April 14 & 15.

This event is a great way to introduce yourself to the wineries of the Hudson Valley.  A one day ticket is $23.76 but for an additional $5 and change $28.27 you can get the two day ticket.  Regardless of the ticket, you have the opportunity to visit all 12 wineries on the Shawangunk Wine Trail, receive a small tapas of pasta at each winery along with wine tastings.

The weather being what it’s been, it should be a nice weekend for winetasting.
