Taste of New York: April is Wine Month

April is Wine Month in New York State, with hundreds of restaurants and wine stores offering customers a “Taste of New York”.

April is the perfect time for this promotion. The first wines from the great 2007 vintage are being released, and we are starting to plan our wine country trips for late spring and summer.

New York Wine Month has a list of restauarants throughout the state which are featuring New York wines from the Hudson Valley, Finger Lakes and Long Island.

Or, buy my book. Shameless self-promotion here.

Eating the Hudson Valley: Food Lover's Guide to Local Dining, Wineries & More is the only complete guide to family-owned and operated restaurants whose menus focus on fresh, natural, local ingredients. There's also a guide to local wineries, farmer's markets, cooking classes, and famous sites to visit. Things like West Point and Kykuit, the Rockefeller mansion.

The list does not include New York City restaurants, which have a separate Taste of New York and New York Wines promotion each fall.
