The Dutchess County Fairgrounds organises an annual wine and food festival
An abundance of decade tastings, flavoured beers, and exquisite food from all over the Hudson Valley were on display on 9 September at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck. At the centre of the celebration was wine, with marquees full of hundred of wines from different vines, many of which even offered tastings.
You can go through the front porch for $40 and get a wine glas for the many stalls. There was a $15 wristband for those who did not want to or were underage, which included a wine bottle on the way out. However, wine was only the easiest of the alcohol drinks on offer.
Throughout the exhibition there were stalls with whisky, apples, bourbon, moonlight strawberries and local vodka. Hudson Valley Distillers was one of those booths. Headquartered 9 leagues upstate from Rhinebeck, the Hudson Valley-based company has been marketing award-winning spirit drinks for 4 years. The festival gave tasters a foretaste of their apple-enriched liqueurs.
The visitor also came across extra virgin oils and vinegars of balmy with aromas of warm jalapño, truffles, white olives, cloves and almonds. "Grandpa Pete's Sunday Sauce," was also among the food tastes and offered aromas of wodka, cloves, meat as well as incense of tomatoes. Whilst food was not part of the fare, the possibilities were limitless.
Meanwhile, food truck ers were lining the exhibition grounds and offered a wide range of food from barbecues to Mexico, French truffles and breast pieces, breaded lobsters and mussels to Empanada and roasted cooking bananas. It was a place where crowds were sitting and enjoying life metal, food and drink at large round table in the heart of the show.
Beneath these desks and dancing there was a lorry with sample brews, which were part of the prize. Flavours range from pale to deep brown brewery brews such as Bell's, Bronx, Laquinitas, Long Trail, Peekskill, Sierra Nevada, Sixpoint, Sloop, Troegs Independent and Von Trapp. Everyone presented their best specimens of IPA, camps, wheat and Oktoberfest, presented in wine glass.
Every year the best of the best of the Hudson Valley meet at the Wine and Food Festival, and it is definitely not an occasion to miss next year.
