This is advance warning -- events at this winery (which has STUNNING views of the Gunks) are very popular so get tickets now.
Whitecliff Vineyard’s Red Wine & Grass-Fed Beef Gourmet Burger Celebration takes place on Saturday and Sunday, August 25th and 26th -- from 12 to 4 p.m. on that Saturday, and from 12-3 p.m. on that Sunday. Enjoy Whitecliff's wine, burgers from local grass-fed beef, sweet corn, and ice cream -- all products from Ulster County. Even the buns, cheese and pickles will be local! Two of Gardiner’s producers of grass-fed beef -- Brykill Farm and Kiernan Farm -- will be featured.
Whitecliff has one of the largest vineyards in the region and is known for complex dry wines that pair particularly well with a meal. The event will take place rain or shine under a tent at Whitecliff Vineyard, 331 McKinstry Road in Gardiner. Tickets are $25 a person, and are available by calling Whitecliff at 845-255-4613.
