Date: 12/14/2013 - 12/15/2013
We have a lovely holiday tradition here in the Hudson Valley that has turned into our most popular event of the year! Wreath Fineries at the Wineries is a fun, festive way to get into the holiday spirit and make great memories. Grab a few friends and take off along the trail for some holiday socializing, cheer and perhaps some shopping! Plan your trip by first choosing a winery for your starting point. You MUST go to this winery FIRST on the event day to check-in with your event ticket and valid ID. and then begin your adventure. At check-in you will receive a grapevine wreath, an ornament from the starting winery and an ornament from the wine trail. The souvenir wine glass is yours to sample the handcrafted wines of the valley. Your ticket includes wine sampling and a tapas portion tasting of a holiday goodie at each of the 14 wineries and an additional ornament from each winery you visit along the trail. This is a self-guided event. Transportation is not provided. We encourage all of our visitors to enjoy this event responsibly and suggest you consider hiring a designated driver or a car service to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip from one winery to the next.
