While we reside in Westchester County and work in NYC, on occasion we also like to head north to the Hudson Valley to visit Rhinebeck, a favorite town of ours. Last year, we visited Rhinebeck for a day trip and the Sheep and Wool Festival so we’re well aware of the charm the town has to offer. We’ll be making a return trip the weekend of Sept. 6-7 for the 13th annual Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest taking place at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds.
The wine and food fest originated at the Greig Farm in Red Hook, New York in 2001. In 2007 the event added a feature area called the Restaurant Showcase that allowed guests to sample specialty dishes from some of the region’s best restaurants. In 2013, the Food Truck Corral was added to the event, highlighted by gourmet food trucks from around the area. Now in 2014, the event will host over 75 wineries, 5 distilleries and more than 100 gourmet specialty food, art, craft and home goods vendors.
We can’t wait to taste wine from some of the best wineries and distilleries in the region and taste food from the area’s best restaurants, food trucks and gourmet specialty foods! If you enjoy wine and food like we do, you can’t miss Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest. Purchase your tickets here. We hope to see you there!
