Shawangunk Wine Trail Joining the Annual Wreath and Fineries Holiday Event

Eleven wineries along the Shawangunk Wine Trail are joining the annual Wreath and Fineries Holiday Event, an opportunity to travel the trail, taste the wines and gather a collection of beautiful ornaments.

Visitors will receive a Shawangunk Wine Trail souvenir wine tasting glass and a handmade grapevine wreath at the first winery they visit. Then, at each of the next 10 wineries, they'll receive an ornament to decorate the wreath. Each winery visit will also include a tasting of wines and holiday foods.

The event is offered 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Dec. 16-17.

Wineries along the trail include Adair Vineyards, Applewood Winery, Baldwin Vineyards, Benmarl Vineyards, Brimstone Hill Vineyard, Brotherhood Winery Glorie Farm Winery, Rivendell Winery, Stoutridge Vineyard and Whitecliff Vineyards.

Tickets are $30 per person and $50 per couple and are good for a full two-day weekend. (Couples receive one wreath and one set of ornaments.) Ticket holders will be assigned a starting winery.
