Sommelier Journal Raves About Hudson Valley Wines



In the May 31, 2012 issue of Sommelier Journal, veteran wine journalist Patricia Savoie raves about Hudson Valley wine.

In the issue, Savoie recounts the geography, history, and current landscape of Hudson Valley wine.

"soils deposited by the receding glaciers contain shale, slate, schist, and limestone, lending a distinct minerality to many of the wines. The cool conditions result in high acidity and relatively moderate alcohol levels (usually 12-13%), making Hudson Valley wines ideal for drinking with meals," writes Savoie.

Benmarl, Brotherhood, Clinton, Hudson-Chatham, Millbrook, Oak Summitt, Stoutridge, and Whitecliff are all highlighted.



The body of the article places the wineries and the wines in context. But the reviews of the wines are flat out wonderful!
