For the first time, Food Network has posted the video from Farmhouse Rules making the mulled wine with Hudson Chatham Winery's popular Hudson River Valley Red.
Hudson-Chatham Winery was prominently featured in the first season of Nancy Fuller's Farmhouse Rules on Food Network! The episode was called Old-Fashioned Dinner Party. In it Nancy came by, visited the winery, and then made mulled wine.
The episode featured several great recipes. Here's Food Network's description: Nancy Fuller's 1650s home is the perfect backdrop for an old-fashioned Dutch dinner party. Nancy's making juicy Roasted Chicken With Chestnut Breading, Sweet Corn Pudding and a Rustic Fruit Tart. She even swings by the local vineyard to pick up a few bottles of red for her spicy Mulled Wine. It's going to be an old-fashioned dinner party with farm flair! (Episode: RF0105H)

The majesty of the Hudson Valley spawned an entire art movement worldwide. The Hudson River School was a mid-19th century American art movement embodied by a group of landscape painters whose aesthetic vision was influenced by romanticism. The paintings for which the movement is named depict the Hudson River Valley and the surrounding area, including the Catskill, Adirondack, and the White Mountains; eventually works by the second generation of artists associated with the school expanded to include other locales in New England, the Maritimes, the American West, and South America.
Hudson River School paintings reflect three themes of America in the 19th century: discovery, exploration, and settlement. The paintings also depict the American landscape as a pastoral setting, where human beings and nature coexist peacefully. Hudson River School landscapes are characterized by their realistic, detailed, and sometimes idealized portrayal of nature, often juxtaposing peaceful agriculture and the remaining wilderness, which was fast disappearing from the Hudson Valley just as it was coming to be appreciated for its qualities of ruggedness and sublimity. Their reverence for America’s natural beauty was shared with contemporary American writers such as Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Hudson River Valley Red is an homage to the men and women who celebrated this great valley and who celebrated the beauty of the landscape and the glory of nature.
