Hudson Valley & New York Wineries
The Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest is a celebration of all things wine. Our event’s main focus is highlighting the wonderful Hudson Valley & New York wineries. As a New York Farm Market, the Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest 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 wine beyond New York.
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. If you are a New York and/or Hudson Valley winery or wine/liquor distributor and are interested in becoming a vendor at our event, please visit the Become A Vendor Page
Educate your mind, nose and palate at the free wine education seminars that take place throughout the Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest weekend. Join regionally and nationally recognized wine authorities for free wine education events. You’ll learn about choosing, serving, tasting and storing wine as well as other fun wine facts.
Join the Hudson Valley Wine Goddess herself, Debbie Gioquindo to learn about wine and wine pairings on our demo stage.
Debbie Gioquindo aims to take the intimidation out of wine. She wants people to feel comfortable walking into a wine store to purchase a bottle based on what they like in a wine, enjoy it and share it with friends. In her reviews, Debbie gives a little history on the wine, winery and / or region. She is honest and straight forward and speaks to her audience as if discussing the topic at a cocktail party. Debbie also shares her wine pairings and recipes.
Debbie’s blog is featured on The Poughkeepsie Journal. She is a contributing writer for Hudson Valley Wine Magazine and Author of “Tapping the Hudson Valley” day trips and weekend itineraries visiting the craft beverage producers and the sights along the way.
Debbie is chairperson of The Hudson Valley Wine & Spirits Competition, she teaches wine appreciation in person and online and is a consultant with craft beverage producers and small business. Debbie is a wife and mother of two wonderful children and is proud to say that they too have an appreciation of wine. Debbie likes to cook, travel, fish, boating and downhill ski.
