Hudson-Chatham Winery's ongoing expansion plans are moving along nicely. The Columbia County winery and tasting room was founded in 2007, added a second tasting room in 2015, and now has added a third tasting room to its lineup.
The new venue -- called Hudson-Chatham Winery Troy -- is located at 203 River Street in downtown Troy, briefly the home of Sweet Sues whose chef-owner Sue Dunckel maintains a connection with the site by providing its breakfast and lunch fare. The menu includes, obviously in addition to H-C wines and adult beverages from other local producers, coffee made for the winery by Chris' Coffee Service of Albany. Plans call for a broadening of the menu to include local artisanal cheese varieties.
Troy hours are 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, although hours may be extended on Fridays and Saturdays. Brunch will be offered on Saturdays and Sundays.
“Everything we do is Hudson Valley or Capital Region,” Carlo DeVito, who runs the winery with his wife Dominique, told local media. “The idea is that it’s local, local, local, local.”
The new venue is managed by Mackenzy Morgan. DeVito said an official ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held in several weeks, and that plans are being discussed to add several more satellite tasting rooms at locations to be decided.
