The Hudson-Chatham Winery is proud to be Columbia County’s first winery. Owners Carlo and Dominique DeVito bought the property that became the winery in early 2006, pleased by its south-facing slope, appropriate soil for growing grapes, and great location along Route 66. The site is the last 14 acres of what was once a thriving dairy farm. With the site established, the DeVitos planted the vineyard and built the tasting room. The winery opened to the public in September 2007. Now in its 8th year, the Hudson-Chatham Winery is a well-established local and tourist destination in Columbia County, voted the Capital Region’s Best Local Winery in 2011, 2012, and 2014, and Columbia County’s Best Winery in 2014 and 2015. People come for the award-winning wines it has produced, as well as for the sunny and friendly tasting room experience, which includes outdoor seating with great views from spring through fall, and a candlelit fireplace in the winter. Since it opened, the winery has featured other locally produced gourmet items in the tasting room, including Hudson Valley artisanal cheeses, jams, sauces, and other gourmet items. Of course the main reason to come is for the wines, and Hudson-Chatham is proud of its multiple award-winning wines and high scores its wines have received from Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast magazines as well as Edible Manhattan, Edible Hudson Valley, and the Wall Street Journal over the years. It produces a range of wines from dry to sweet to sparkling and dessert wines. An article about Hudson Valley wine and cheese venues in the New York Post (Oct 2012) commented, “Next, head up the parkway to Columbia County, where it’s all about the Hudson-Chatham Winery, which even the biggest snobs will admit can be pretty darn good.”
