Hudson Valley Wine & Chocolate Festival

Posted by editor on 11/13/15

The 3rd annual Hudson Valley Wine and Chocolate Festival will be held this month. On Sunday November 22nd in Fishkill, Hudson Valley residents can come and enjoy some sweet and savory treats, and delicious wine! A little further up north, about an hour from The Castle, this event is definitely worth the drive! An all day extravaganza from 11am to 5 pm, visitors can sample some of the best from Westchester and the Hudson Valley.

Over 50 vendors will be in participation for the festival. Some that you can expect to see are Applewood Winery, Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery, Manhattan Beer Distributors, Harvest Spirits, Brotherhood – America’s Oldest Winery and many others! Candy and Chocolate vendors include Dolci Bella Fine Foods, Saratoga Crackers, Dove Chocolate Discoveries, Bella’s Biscotti and several other local favorites. Not only is there wine and chocolate but lots of other delicious treats for you to try. Vendors will also be selling and providing honey, olive oil, hard cider, beer, cheese and other specialty treats and foods. There will also be craft vendors and with the event taking place right before Thanksgiving, it’s the perfect place to get ahead with your holiday shopping and find some gifts, or items to decorate your apartment at The Castle!

Tasting and sampling of products will be offered so that visitors can then purchase what they love and bring home with them. Last year there were over 1000 people in attendance and this year is expected to be just as big of a hit! Tickets are now for sale online at a discounted price of $25.
