In the upcoming issue of Hudson Valley Connoisseur magazine, due out on August 1, we include a special section on regional wine festivals. Visit the Web site and look under How to Get It for a list of local stores that sell HVC magazine.
Here's something that takes place before the magazine comes out: the 12th annual "Bounty of the Hudson" Food & Wine Festival. Online ticket sales end a week from today for the event, which takes place on July 28 & 29 (Saturday and Sunday) at Brotherhood Winery, 100 Brotherhood Plaza Drive in Washingtonville, Orange County. Brotherhood, by the way, is "America's Oldest Winery."
Sounds like a fun event! You can sample wines from all 10 wineries on the Shawangunk Wine Trail as well as several others from around the Hudson Valley. There will also be food from area restaurants, produce from local farms, cooking workshops and live music! Noon to 5 p.m. each day.
$25 (plus tax) in advance, ($30 at the door)
Designated Driver Ticket $10.
