Nestled between the famous Shawangunk Mountains and the majestic Hudson River, The Shawangunk Wine Trail is an 80-mile route through the Shawangunk Mountain Region linking farm wineries in Orange and Ulster Counties. Just 85 miles north of New York City, the Trail is composed of eleven family owned wineries from New Paltz in Ulster County to Warwick, in Orange County, along with dozens of Associate Members dedicated to making a visit to the Hudson Valley a memorable experience. The group hosts seasonal events including:
Bounty Of The Hudson Wine Festival, July 30 & 31, 2011, 12 noon - 5 PM; Adair Vineyards, 52 Alhusen Rd., New Paltz NY
Taste the wine from all of the wineries on the trail as well as several others from around the region. Enjoy tastes and dishes from area restaurants, epicurean delights, farm fresh produce and live music.
Directions: The Trail is easily accessible by the New York State Thruway at Exits 16, 17 and 18, from Route 17 at Exit 119 and can be approached from the south of Interstate 84 at Warwick and Washingtonville and to the north of 84 at Pine Bush and New Paltz.
