Get the door, it's the liquor store
Living in the Hudson River Valley, especially right along the edge of the Hudson River, you’re no stranger to pastoral scenery and lush apple orchards. In New Windsor, New York, strolling past Revolutionary War-era buildings or walking through a dense, evergreen park is the norm. Hike to the top of... nearby Schunnemunk Mountain to catch a glimpse of the Empire State Building’s spire from over 60 miles away. As if that weren’t enough of a draw, the area’s vineyards are increasingly popular on the viticultural scene. The Hudson River wine region has some of the oldest wineries in the country and produces a robust variety of grapes (reds and whites), many of which were planted by early French settlers. The region has experienced growing recognition in recent years, even with its colder climate. If you’re more of a beer connoisseur than a wine savant, a dozen or so local microbreweries have popped up in the New Windsor and surrounding area. Even in more bucolic settings like New Windsor, you can rely on Drizly’s alcohol delivery service to sample your local products. See what’s in stock through one convenient app or site. From aged cab-francs to tart yet boozy ciders, explore the region’s expanding industry.
