Charles Derbyshire Spreading the Good News About Hudson Valley Wine

Recently, the Hudson Valley county fairs have ben in full swing. And none is more popular than the Duthess County Fair.

The fair has lots o offer, with both traditional fair foods (sausage, hotdogs, fried dough) and the more exotic (artisianal cheeses, home made beef jerky, jams, etc.).

We saw many cool things....but the coolest was Charles Derbyshire of Old Mill Wine & Spirits doing a wine tasting in one of the exhibit halls, showing off Hudson Valley wines.
Charles owns Old Mill Hill WInes & Spirits in in Rhinebeck, and donated his time to do free tastings of Hudson Valley wines at Rhinebeck at the Fair.
The lectures and tastings were free...and well attended.
Thank you Charles.
