Shawangunk Wreath Fineries at the Wineries 2011

Wreath Fineries at the Wineries
December 3, 4, 10 & 11

Their most popular event is selling out quickly!

TheNovember 19 & 20th were a huge success! Did you go?! If not, there's still time!

Tickets are still available for Sunday December 4th, Saturday December 10th and Sunday December 11th.

A self-guided tour of 11 wineries. At your first winery, you will get a souvenir Shawangunk Wine Trail Wine Glass, a new Oval Shaped Grapevine Wreath, a special Shawangunk Wine Trail ornament, designed specifically using our new logo, and an ornament from your first winery. Then pick up another ornament at each of the wineries you visit. If you visit all 11 wineries, you end up with 12 ornaments to decorate your wreath and to keep for years. In addition, you sample wine at each winery! What a great way to spend a day, sampling wine, enjoying friends, meeting new people, and maybe even getting some Holiday shopping done along the way.

Sundays are the most enjoyable days to visit the wineries. It is a much more relaxed atmosphere as the wineries are not generally as busy on Sundays.
