  • Hudson Valley Wine Country
  • History of the Oldest Wine Region in America
    • The Hudson River Wine Region is referred to as the most complex geological regions of the world. Located parallel to northern Spain, southern France and central Italy, warm ocean breezes extend the growing season to between 180 – 196 days.
    • The French Hugenots planted the first vines in New Paltz (now part of Ulster County) in 1677, 100 years before any vines were planted in what is now California.
    • 1827, Quaker RobertUnderhill, who had established a self-sustaining community at Croton Point, planted grapevines brought from Europe. Although Underhill’s attempt to cultivate these vines failed, that didn’t stop him. Over the next two decades
    he cross-bred native and European vines and the results paid off - grapes with wonderful flavor growing on vines hardy enough to survive in this climate.
    • William Cornell established a vineyard in Ulster County in 1845. His endeavors greatly interested his brother-in-law, Andrew Caywood, who settled in Marlborough and worked on creating second generation hybrid vines. This is now part of Benmarl Winery @ Slate Hill Vineyards
  • History Continued…..
    • The first commercial winery in the Hudson Valley, Jacques Brothers Winery, was established in 1837 for the production of altar wines. Renamed Brotherhood in 1885, the Washingtonville winery is the nation’s oldest continuously operated winery.
    • In 1850, the region’s second winery was established at Croton Point. The company produced altar wines and also marketed its product in New York City as a medicinal tonic.
    • The Hudson Valley Wine Company was opened in Highland (Ulster County) in 1904 by Alphonso Bolognese. The company made altar wines for local monasteries and was the Regent Champagne Cellars.
    • High Tor Vineyards, which operated on a scenic mountain site in Rockland County back in 1949, was one of he east’s most prominent wineries.
    • In the 1970’s New York Governor Hugh Carey appointed John Dyson as state Commissioner of Agriculture. Dyson formed a task force that drew up the Farm Winery Bill. With testimony from Benmarl Vineyards owner Mark Miller
    and support from many other vintners and organizations, the bill was passed in 1976, paving the way for rapid growth of the Hudson Valley wine industry.
