  • Winery Renovation


This winery has been undergoing a continuous reno since 2005, and the results are nothing less than fabulous. Both the sales room and mansion have gotten face-lifts as well as the Grand Monarque Hall, the event space that holds up to 220 guests and has an elegant, rustic look. The Vinum Café (serving anything ranging from full gourmet meals to wine and cheese platters) also saw improvements, and a wine museum was added to the historic cellars. A new warehouse, opened in 2012, helped expand production by giving a home to state-of-the-art filters, tanks, and fillers; new bottling lines allowed production and storage capacity to double in the past five years. It seems America’s oldest winery is certainly keeping up with the times.

Best of Hudson Valley History

2008 Editors' Pick — Best Port Wine

Additional Information:

Best of Hudson Valley Winners: 2008
County: Orange
Pick: Editors' Picks
About: So many awards, so little time. The winery's ruby port won a Gold Medal and Best in Class at this year's Hudson Valley Wine and Grape Association competition; it won a bronze medal at last year's state fair, and on and on. So curl up on the couch and toast the crisp fall nights as you sip on this sweet, full-bodied dessert wine. You can buy it on the company's Web site for just $9.99, but the winery itself (the oldest in the country) is worth a visit. You could even join in the grape stomping on many Saturdays and Sundays this fall.
