We have a very special event at the winery on Saturday, May 2 - a Blessing of the Vines with Father Gary Gelfenbein. Father Gary will be conducting a short blessing ceremony in the vineyard at 11:30 am on Saturday and all are welcome to share in it. Please arrive at the winery at 11:15 to accompany us to the vineyard so we can start on time. Afterward, there will be a toast with the Hudson-Chatham Blanc de Blanc. It’s sure to be a memorable occasion!
Also on Saturday, May 2, in the winery, we are having Coach Farm Day. D. Curto will be at the winery to talk about and give samples of the Farm’s distinctive goat cheeses. There will also be dishes prepared by local chefs that feature Coach cheeses. Come see how Chef Josephine at Local 111 in Philmont likes to use Coach!
The Winery is back in stock with Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Lindenwald White, and Ghent Blush. They join our staples of Seyval Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Pomme Bulle, and Blanc de Blanc. We have also introduced a light, fruity red called Hudson River Valley Red that pairs nicely with everything from roast chicken to burgers to hearty pasta and rice dishes.
Our line of dessert wines under the Paperbirch label include Highlands Fine Ruby, Raspberry Fine Ruby, and a new white port-style wine, Palladian White. This Seyval/Riesling-based port includes a hint of peach, and is delicious served with any kind of fruit dessert.
Besides regular hours, the winery is also open by appointment. It’s a great location for social groups and businesses to host parties, and we are currently booking those as well as showers and weddings for 2009 and beyond. Give us a call or email us if you’re interested in any of these opportunities.
