Leading Hudson Valley agritourism for decades, the award-winning wineries on the Shawangunk Wine Trail are a diverse array of destinations, as individual and original as their owners. The common theme: excellence, creativity, expertise, and a warm welcome. With the Hudson Valley Wine Tasting Passport, you’ll save on tastings at every one. Here are some of the fringe benefits:
see the real hudson valley
From iconic vistas of the Shawangunk Ridge to the lush green hills of Marlboro beside the Hudson, from Warwick and Washingtonville on up to Gardiner and New Paltz, the Wine Trail winds its way through some of the Hudson Valley’s most spectacular scenery, both natural and human-crafted, full of sights you’ll want to photograph and streets you’ll want to explore.
incomparable cultural terroir
This side of the Hudson Valley is sizzling with art, music, theater, and culinary doings, and our wineries partner with all kinds of great minds to bring you exhibits, concerts, performances, and feasts you won’t find anywhere else—and will remember for a lifetime.
a living encyclopedia of fine beverage
Nowhere else will you find the nation’s oldest professional vineyard (Benmarl) and oldest winery (Brotherhood). You’ll experience the Innovation Cider House at Angry Orchard, the brandies distilled at Demarest Hill, and the honey mead at Palaia. The Wine Trail is a master class in the art of craft beverage, from its deepest roots to its cutting edges.
comfort and convenience
The Wine Trail works with nine different transportation companies who’ll be happy to help you plan a car-free wine tour. Their list of lodging partners is twice that long and includes everything from simplest to sumptuous.
