Although the ever-popular Cosimo’s Trattoria’s empire stretches across four Hudson Valley locations, the Newburgh, Poughkeepsie, and Woodbury spots offer a premier dining experience in three special wine cellars. With space for up to 22 people in Newburgh, 54 in Poughkeepsie, and 30 in Woodbury, the wine rooms are a private portion of the restaurant that is hidden either downstairs or upstairs, with features such as built-in wine racks and carefully curated atmospheres that are sure to immerse diners. During the evening, you might just forget that you’re dining in the Hudson Valley instead of Italy.

Meaning “blackboard” in Italian, Lavagna is named after its ever-changing menu that evolves with the seasons. The Suffern spot sports blackboard walls decorated by local Nyack artist Mike Delancey to accompany its clean-slate theme. Moreover, the wine cellar is world class, including over 125 labels by the bottle and 25 by the glass. Pair your choice of wine with dishes like oysters, specialty pastas, and salumeria boards, or inquire about a full caviar tasting to expand your taste buds.

A different kind of cellar, RMV Cellars is the best of both craft wine and beer, both of which are made onsite. The venue is a collaboration between Red Maple Vineyard and Great Life Brewing in Ulster County, creating a place where award-winning wines and beers can coexist under one roof. In the cellar, sample globally inspired eats prepared by CIA graduates, and peer through the glass wall to catch a glimpse of the fermentation room behind the bar.
