Carlo and Dominique have long shared a love of wine.
This exciting new winery, which specializes in small hand-made batches of wine,
is dedicated to the richness of the Hudson River Valley, particularly its wine,
agriculture, literature, art, history, and many other attractions that make it a
rich and special region. The Hudson-Chatham Winery, located between the
historic towns of Hudson and Chatham, is the first winery in Columbia
As well as creating fine artisanal wines, the DeVito family (including two dogs),
and many valued friends, have worked hard restoring the winery's grounds and its
prestigious circa 1780 farmhouse. The winery features hand-crafted wines,
cheeses and desserts.

These are some of elegant and unique small batch wines Hudson Chatham Winery produces:
2010 Baco Noir Old Vines Mason Place
Vineyards Pultney Farms
This wine comes from vines that
are more than 60 years old. The berries are dark and ripe. The wine is all
handmade, and unfiltered and unfined. It's aged in French oak barrels. The major
profile of this wine is it's deep dark sour cherry flavor, with hints of plum
and prune, and big whiffs of vanilla and fallen leaves. A medium palate wine,
this is a soft approachable red that has become one of the signature wines of
the Hudson-Chatham stable.
Chelois Casscles Vineyards
This is one of the crown jewels of the Hudson-Chatham line. A soft, cherry flavored red table wine made from Chelois grapes. Grown on a small parcel, this wine is handmade, unfiltered,
and unfined. Hudson-Chatham Chelois features a bright red cherry profile, with gentle touches
of vanilla and fallen leaves. A exquisite red wine comparable to a light Burgundy Pinot Noir.
The Hudson Chatham Cheddar line will be available to taste and for purchase. They are
normally only available at Hudson Chatham Winery. Another exclusive for ESC fans.
We are excited to have the very talented Carlo DeVito here as our guest, and look forward to
seeing you Saturday evening
