There is a new vineyard in Warwick, New York. It's name is Clearview Vineyard. The owner is Frank Grassle. They are not open to the public that I know of. But I met Frank at the most recent Hudson Valley Wine and Grape Growers event last month.

And for the first time I tried one of his wines. One of his wines I tasted was his Cabernet Sauvignon 2009. It had a lot of cherries up fron and a nice dry, smooth finish.

We'll see where and when Clearview opens, but in the meantime, good to know there's another winery in the valley opening. You can see his website below.
