Drive along the winding country roads, past the lush pastures and through the quiet village streets and you will discover some of the most beautiful countryside New York State has to offer. Peppered throughout this beautiful landscape are some of the oldest vineyards in the country.
Winemaking in the Hudson Valley has quietly endured for centuries, but in recent years, the industry’s popularity and notoriety has flourished. Some of the East Coast’s best vintages can be found right here in the Hudson Valley, in fact, some have even called us the “Napa Valley of the East.”
Today, the Hudson Valley is home to more than 20 operating wineries. Take a stroll through Hudson Valley’s Wine Trail and you’ll discover iconic views paired with refreshing varieties. If that idea sounds as good to you as a glass of merlot, then you are in the right place.
