CIDER MILL PRESS & HUDSON-CHATHAM WINERY RELEASE CO-LICENSED BOOK AND WINE

Cider Mill Press is publishing The Hudson River Valley Reader edited by Edward C. Goodman, to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the exploration of the Hudson River by Henry Hudson. And for the first time ever a wine produced by the award-winning Hudson-Chatham Winery, named Hudson River Valley Red 2008, is being simultaneously released as part of a licensing effort. This is the first time a wine has been licensed from a book.


The Hudson-River Valley Reader is a book that combines the history of the river as well as literary gems from such Hudson Valley literati as Washington Irving, John Burroughs, and many others.

Hudson River Valley Red 2008 is a light-to-medium bodied dry red table wine made from grapes grown in the Hudson Valley. Made from DeChaunac, Seyval Blanc, and Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is versatile and smooth, and is great with poultry, fish, or vegetarian meals.

Hudson-Chatham Winery is located in Ghent, NY, and is Columbia County’s first winery. Located on the former Brisklea Ayrshire Dairy Farm, the winery is nestled between the Catskill and Berkshire mountains. Carlo and Dominique DeVito make an array of award winning wines, as well as 100% natural maple syrups under their Sugarmaker’s Reserve label.

The painting Hudson River Scene by John Bunyon Bristol (1826-1909) is courtesy the Hudson River Museum, located in Yonkers, New York. The Museum collects 19th- and 20th-c. American art and cultural, social and historical material related to Glenview, the Museum's historic house, and the wider Westchester County/Hudson River Valley region. Though the Museum's collecting focus has evolved over its 84-year history, the trustees and staff have always been concerned with the institution's value and relevance to the surrounding region and its residents.


Congratulations Carlo and Dominique!
