Warwick, NY Wineries, Cideries and Distilleries

If you are a wine lover living in New York, you don’t have to go all the way to Europe or California for the ultimate wine day out!  Warwick, NY wineries are a mere 50 miles from Manhattan and are some of the premiere drinking establishments in the Hudson Valley.  In addition to the wineries, you have cideries and distilleries, to satisfy the non wine drinkers and contribute some variety to the drinking day!

What to Order:

The Riesling always does the trick for me. It’s a perfect crisp white for picnics and listening live music!
