The Hudson Valley is America’s oldest wine making and grape-growing region. Less than an hour and a half from New York City, a visit to to the Hudson Valley Wineries and wine trails offers hospitable winery tasting rooms, where you can often meet the owners and taste award-winning wines made from classic European varieties, regional hybrids and even delicious fruit wines. Join us for this fun day where you will enjoy a spectacular summer day out of the city, taste great wines and meet a fun group of NYSN members and friends. If you have been to the Long Island wineries, this is a totally different experience! Hudson Valley Wineries are less crowded, less commercialized and the scenery blows the Long Island Wineries away! The group will also visit the famous Walkway Over The Hudson Park.
What to expect:
-You will start your day with the beautiful train ride on Metro North from Grand Central alongside the Hudson. Along the way you will be treated to spectacular views of the Hudson Valley. You may also drive or meet the group there if you live north of the city. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
-Your guide will meet you in Poughkeepsie then bring you to the famous Walkway Over The Hudson Park. This was a train bridge connecting New England with the Midwest from 1889-1973. In 2009 it was paved and reopened as a park connecting Poughkeepsie to Highland NY. It is one of the most visited parks in the Northeast.
-At the end of the walkway your guide will bring you to a beautiful setting for lunch
-Following lunch and the tasting we will visit 3 local wineries
-We will also have a chance to stop at a local farm stand for those who would like to bring home some fresh fruits and veggies.
