Hudson Valley Wine Festval

This weekend is the annual Hudson Valley Wine Fest. This year the festival has moved and it will be at the Dutchess County Fair Grounds. A great move by festival organizers! Last year we had a thunder storm that blew in the sides of the tent. What a mess!

This year looks like it will be a banner year with many more wineries attending. There will be wineries from the Hudson Valley as well as the Finger Lakes. There are going to be some fantastic seminars like:
Cake w/drunken berries and chocolate mousse by Dan Budd of Taste Budd's ,Jessica Applestone of Fleisher's Meats, Homemade Jerk Sauce by Shantell Muhammed of Soul Caribbean Cuisineay Art of Matching Wine & Spicy Food by Ric Orlando of New World Home Cooking

I'm looking forward to Ric Orlando's seminar. He's a fantastic Chef and I'm sure he has some wonderful wine pairing suggestions.

This is a wonderful opportunity to taste some great wine produced in New York State. The festival is rain or shine. See you there!
