It’s wine season in the Hudson Valley! We love the stuff so much, we even dedicated our most recent issue to it (view it here). Lucky for us, the Valley is brimming with wine festivals, including one of the longest-running — Bounty Of the Hudson Wine and Food Festival — which celebrates its twentieth anniversary at Benmarl Winery in Marlboro.
At this two-day fête, attendees sip vinos from more than 14 of the region’s finest wineries and sample delicious cheeses and baked goods from local vendors and restaurants (find the full list here). Chill out on the lawn, nosh on snacks from one of the specialty food trucks, and listen to live music from Woodstock native Lindsey Webster (Saturday) and country rock band Thunder Ridge (Sunday).
Guests receive a souvenir tasting glass and enough delicious samples to avoid a rumbling stomach. Cheers!
