Wineries Help Celebrate Hudson Valley Wine Market’s 2nd Anniversary

For those of you who do not know, Hudson Valley Wine Market is a destination wine & spirits shop and e-commerce site that offers an incredibly large selection of Hudson Valley wines. They specialize in HV wines!

Brotherhood, America’s Oldest Winery, Tuthilltown Spirits, and Whitecliff Vineyards will help celebrate Hudson Valley Wine Market’s second anniversary in business with complimentary wine and spirits tastings on Saturday, January 24th.  The event takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. at the shop at 119 Main Street, Gardiner, NY.  There will also be food tastings, sale discounts, and giveaways, including Edible Hudson Valley and The Valley Table magazines.

Hudson Valley Wine Market is located in Gardiner, NY, where the Shawangunk Wine Trail, Shawangunk Mountains Scenic Byway, and Wallkill Valley Rail Trail all meet.

Hudson Valley wines and wineries have won significant awards and been well-rated by major media in recent years.  Moreover, Wine Enthusiast just awarded New York State “Wine Region of the Year”, where it competed with Champagne, Chianti, and Sonoma, among other world-class wine regions for the title.  The Hudson Valley has become an important part of New York’s overall wine industry, helping to grow it to the second largest wine-producing state in the country.

“A continually increasing number of critically-acclaimed and award-winning wines are produced here,” says Perry Goldschein, owner of the shop.  “The region is up to over 50 wineries, which have continued to improve as the region grows steadily over time.”
“Accomplishments like Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s tasting and rating of dozens of Hudson Valley wines in the upper 80s to 90 point range the last couple of years can’t be over-estimated,” adds Mr. Goldshein, anymore than well-known wine experts, such as Kevin Zraly and Steven Kolpan, acknowledging that the Hudson Valley has been producing world class wines.”
