All items to be sampled are locally sourced, and all will be on sale. There is no charge for the tastings.
The breads will be supplied by the bakery Bonfiglio & Bread in Hudson.
The wine component will, of course, be Hudson-Chatham products, including the new release of its 2011 Baco Noir Reserve. It is made from the fruit of Steve Casscles' 16-year-old Baco vines in Athens, Greene County.
The artisanal cheeses will be from three Hudson Valley creameries: Sprout Creek Farm, The Creamery at Twin Maple Farm and Coach Farm.
Sprout Creek cheeses are made from antibiotic- and hormone-free milk of small herds of its own cows and goats. Twin Maple's signature offering is Hudson Red, a washed rind, raw Jersey cow milk cheese that recently won a gold medal at the North American Jersey Cattle Association competition. Coach Farm uses traditional French farmstead methods to make its goat cheeses. It has more than 900 French Alpine dairy goats, born and raised on the farm.
The event will run from noon to 5 p.m. The winery is located at 1900 Route 66 in Columbia County, about midway between its namesake communities.
