ANNOUNCING A TASTING OF HUDSON VALLEY WINES BY SNOOTH.COM
Virtual Tasting is Wednesday March 21 at 8 p.m. EST.
Editor-in-Chief, Gregory Dal Piaz will host a tasting of New York's Hudson Valley
Live from the Millbrook Winery in scenic upstate New York.
Our next Virtual Tasting is Wednesday March 21 at 8 p.m. EST. RSVP now!
Just a scant hour north of Manhattan lies the Hudson Valley, practically a suburb of New York City, where a world of wonders waits to be discovered. From artisinal cheese to heirloom apples, it is a region rich with traditional delicacies. Do you want to know the best thing about the Hudson Valley?
It's the wine!
Wine in the Hudson Valley has come a long way over the past decades. The vibe remains pretty much the same, think Sonoma circa 1960, but the wines are really evolving. While a decade ago hybrid grapes may have made the most successful wines, today we're looking at Chardonnay and Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and even some groovy outliers like Tocai Friulano!
Sound exciting? Well it is! What's even more exciting is that I'm going to be tasting some of the best wines live during Snooth's next virtual tasting.
Join Carlo DeVito, author, emissary, winery owner and president of HudsonValleyWineCountry.org, and me for an hour of discovery and exploration as we talk about the history of the Hudson Valley and all that is making it one of today's most exciting and vibrant wine producing regions.
Bring any bottle of Hudson Valley wine you can find! We'll be taking live questions about the Hudson Valley and the wines produced there. Come join the party next Wednesday March 21st at 8pm. We'll be waiting!
