"Longevity" aptly sums up the Hudson River Region of New York. The historic region claims both the oldest continuously active winery in America, the Brotherhood Winery (est. 1839) as well as the oldest operating commercial vineyard in America (dating to 1827), now the site of the Benmarl Winery. Today, there are five hundred acres of vineyard flanking the Hudson River, which flows due south through eastern New York State. The region hosts close to 30 small wineries, most situated on the western bank, where an eastern exposure permits early morning sunshine to warm the vineyards. Although most vineyards are located closer to the banks of the Hudson, viable growing conditions do extend several miles to the east and west of the river. The Hudson’s perfect north-south orientation moderates the otherwise harsh climate, channeling maritime breezes inland, cooling the hot, humid summers and keeping winters milder.

  • Hudson-Chatham Chelois Casscles Vineyards 2010


    Very distinct sweet strawberry jam tones greet the nose joined by smoky top notes and a touch of minerality. Lightly sweet on entry, this is round and lush with soft tannins and finely integrated acidity. The fruit is fairly fresh with blueberry tones complimenting the wild strawberry base. Nice and lively on the palate, this finishes with some ... Read More

  • Tousey Cabernet Franc Oak Summit Vineyard 2010


    A touch sweet from wood, this shows a brightness and freshness to the slightly peppery cinnamon-scented, sagey red currant and raspberry fruit on the nose. Very well balanced in the mouth, this shows lovely balance in a light style. The fruit is fresh and full of raspberry and red plum notes with a real clarity to the flavors. The finish is slig...

  • Hudson-Chatham Seyval Blanc Hudson River 2010


    A little toasty on the nose with some licorice and hawthorn aromas over modest melon and pear fruit. This is very bright with huge acids up front lending this a really juicy feel. Light-bodied and fresh, this delivers clear, clean flavors of watermelon rind, lime and slightly pineapple-like fruit flavors. The finish is refreshing in a very limea... Read More
