Hudson Berkshire WIne & Food Fest 2014 a Success!!! Photo Album

 
The Hudson Berkshire Wine & Food Festival 2014 drew 4,000 happy festival goers this year! And that matched the expanded selection consumers had to choose from. There were six distilleries, fourteen wineries, and three breweries. Always a fun event!!!

 
The media too responded to what has fast become one of the tent poles of the wine festival season in the Hudson Valley.

 
 
 
 
 
Aside from wines, beers, spirits, and ciders, there were food trucks, gourmet foods, and other fun desserts and food products.
