Hudson Valley Wine FestivalHudson Valley Wine Festival

The Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest is a celebration of all things wine.  Our event’s main focus is highlighting the wonderful wineries to be found in the Hudson Valley and all over New York.  As a NY Farm market, our Hudson Valley Wine Festival offers New York wineries the ability to sell wine by the bottle, thus offering a marvelous opportunity for our guests to purchase the state’s finest wines directly from the winery.

We often have a few select international wines and liquors represented for our guests who like to explore beyond NY.

Another highlight of the event is the fact that many of the grape growers and wine makers are in attendance.  This offers a fantastic chance for oenophiles to really learn about the wine and ask questions of the people responsible for creating it.
