Brimming with insiders’ tips about visiting Hudson Valley wineries, craft distilleries, as well as family-friendly autumn attractions, a special edition of the Hudson Valley Wine Magazine is dedicated to the Shawangunk Wine Trail. The issue will be unveiled at the 4th Annual EscapeMaker’s Applepalooza festival at the South Street Seaport in Manhattan on September 30, 2018.
The Shawangunk Wine Trail is only 60 miles north of New York, the closest wine region to the city in the state. Nestled between the Shawangunk (“Sha-WAN-Gunk”) Mountains and the Hudson River, the trail features 13 member wineries striving to produce world-class wines and collectively introduce them to locals and visitors. The trail winds amid stunning landscapes and a range of attractions, including hiking, kayaking, spas, antique shopping, farm-to-table eateries, U-pick farms and markets, and holiday tree farms.
The Shawangunk Wine Trail edition includes a feature with celebrity Chef and Chopped judge Marc Murphy, profiles of the 13 wineries, a map of the region, a discount pass to tasting rooms and discounts to trail events, as well as transportation and lodging options.
