Catskill Nite a Success

Congratulations to Hudson Valley Wine magazine's Linda Pierro and Bob Bedford who helped to organize the 2010 edition of Catskill Nite. The event started at 4pm in the center of town, taking up one full block, and the party didn't end until 9pm. It was a great time. Four local wineries filled the streets along side bakers, crafts folks, and others, as people came from as far away as Albany and Dutchess counties...there were event a few city folk there as well (NYC that is).
This was a new format for the event. In the past, it was held in the municipal parking lot. Many of the vendors seemed to agree that the event was much more successful in the new configuration.
Huds-Chatham WInery was there.
Fred and Paula of Cereghino-Smith were also there. They are such cool, nice people. We love them!

Sue and Ed Miller were there from Brookview Station Winery. We love Sue and Ed as well.

And here's George from Casade Mountain. George is all over the place, probably the hardest workin' man in the Hudson Valley. He does farm markets, wine festivals. And he seems to be at almost every one. George is great!

Anyway, a great time was had by all. Everyone was tired and had a great time!
