This last Sunday was the 2009 Bethel Woods Wine Festival. There were many wineries in attendance for the one day event.

The weather was beautiful at the Bethel Woods Arts Center. The fields were a bright green. And the sun was a bright blue.

Whitecliff Vineyard, Brimstone Hill, Cascade, Silver Stram, Hudson-Chatham, Bashakill, Pazdar, Adair, and Glorie Farm all represented the Hudson River Region.

More than 1,500 people lined the walk outside the tent during the course fo the day. And many of the wineries sold out before the 4pm closing.
It was a great day and a great event!
