EDIBLE HUDSON VALLEY Raves About The Shawangunk Wine Trail

Great article by Peter Barrett on The Shawangunk Wine Trail in the southern part of the Hudson Valley in the Fall 2013 issue of Edible Hudson Valley.

The fourteen wineries on the trail carry on a tradition of the fine winemaking established by the early settlers who brought their wine making expertise to this valley over 300 years ago. Each winery is different. Small to medium in size, all proud of their well crafted red and white wines that range from bone dry to dessert sweet. You will find sparkling wines, vinifera and French/American varietals and blends, and even some beautifully made fruit wines. This young, thriving industry has recently become well known for its prize winning wines across the nation. Throughout the year there are special events such as Lobster Fests, jazz concerts and strawberry festivals.

The Trail is easily accessible by the New York State Thruway at Exits 16, 17 and 18, from Route 17 at Exit 119 and can be approached from the south of Interstate 84 at Warwick and Washingtonville and to the north of 84 at Marlboro, Pine Bush and New Paltz.

Congrats to the members of the wine trail and to Nancy and Ray Painter of Edible Hudson Valley magazine and to editor Eric Steinman!
