New York’s Hudson River Valley: the birthplace of American Wineries.  

Savor the final weeks of summer sun immersed in upstate New York’s finest viniculture, the roots of American wineries.  Home to our country’s earliest commercial winery as well as the oldest continuously operated vineyard, the Hudson Valley wine industry has built solid roots in perfecting a large variety of grapes – comparable to that of Italy & France, albeit climate differences.  John Dyson, owner of Millbrook Vineyards – whose dedicated efforts as the Commissioner of Agriculture passed the Farm Winery Bill of 1976 – made small-scale wineries a more financially attainable endeavor, resulting in exponential growth of the Hudson Valley’s vineyards.  Currently home to over 20 fully operating wineries, the Hudson River Region continues to celebrate its beloved vineyards with festivals, tastings & tours throughout each season.

“Wine is sunlight held together by water.”
