Clinton Vineyards Carries Home Tons of Medals from Hudson Valley Wine Competiotn 2012



Congrats to Phyllis Feder and the folks over at Clinton Vineyards for their eight medals at the Hudson Valley Wine & Spirits Competition 2012 sponsored by the Hudosn Valley Wine & Grapes Growers Assoc.

The romance of wine and the splendor of nature come together in a very special way at Clinton Vineyards regarded as “the jewel of Hudson Valley agriculture.” A portfolio of premium Estate Bottled wines and the intimate beauty of the setting at Clinton Vineyards has attracted the attention of wine lovers, writers and visitors from far and wide.

Established in 1977, proprietor Ben Feder was inspired by the tradition of small European Estates when he focused on cultivating Seyval Blanc and producing white wine, champagnes, made in the classic methode champenoise and late harvest dessert wine on his 15 acre vineyard. In recent years the portfolio has been expanded to include luscious pure fruit dessert wines, made from locally grown fruits, with sexy names like Romance, Embrace and Desire. Our Cassis is the only black currant wine made in the United States to win gold medals and Best of Classis the Los Angeles International Wine Competition.
