Catskill Wine & Cheese 2010

In the first week of May, as usual, was the Rip Van Winkle Wine & Cheese event at the Beattie Powers Mansion at 123 Prospect Street in Catskill.

The weather did not seem like it was going to cooperate at first, but then the sun shone through.

Many wineries from the Hudson Valley, and even one from Long Island, werethere for the fun!

Paula and Fred of Coreghino-Smith Winery were there, debuting two new wines! More on East Coast Wineries blog for that!

Sue Goold Miller was their for regional powerhouse Brookview Station.

Laura and Aaron were there for Hudson-Chtham Winery.

Paul from Long Island Meadery was there. More on his stuff later too!

Cascade Winery was also represented.

Thousand Islands Winery was there too!

And I met some folks from the Adirondack Winery, a winery new to me. That's owner Sasha Pardy up front. They were very nice as well.

There were fewer wineries than last year, but that wasn't a bad thing. The tents were very managable, and many people seemed to have had a terrific time!
