Hudson Valley magazine Lauds Pazdar Chocolate Wines

Congratulations to David Pazdar, who's Pazdar Winery introduced chocolate wines more than 15 years ago, well ahead of the trend, and whose wines are always among the most popular at any winery event!!! David created the chocolate craze here in the metropolitan region!

Cerise Chocolat and Eden's Pleasure have been staples of almost any farmers market and wine festival from the Finger Lakes, to the Capital region to the lower Hudson Valley. David is a ubiquitous presence in New York for almost two decades, and has won a number of medals and awards.
David specializes in dessert wines and alsomakes more classically balanced traditional wines as well. But his stand is always packed, at any wine event. People just love his wines. And you couldn't meet a nicer guy!!!!
Perfect for Valetine's day...or any night....enjoy!
