Hudson Valley Vinters Gather After Albany Protest

After the Albany protest by the Liquor store owners and wholesalers, the Hudson Valley winemakers held a confab. The event was held at Brookview Station at Goold's Orchards. Many winemakers were there to show their solidarity.

Karen from Brookview Station readying the bar.

Sue Goold Miller and Derek and his Mom from Harvest Spirits. The families from Goolds Farm and Golden Harvest Farm have know each other since childhood.

The ubiquitous George Caifero of Cascade Mountain and Joe Messina from Amici Vineyard Winery.

And honorary HV vintner for a night, Robin Ross of Arrowhead Spring Winery from the Niagara region was also on hand. And we liked her.
Claire from Brotherhood was also there. Somehow, I lost her photo. Apologies Claire!
