- Eat before you come to the tasting. There are many wines to try...the munchies provided are intended to help you try the wines with food and clear your palate.
- Drink water or eat bread to clear your palate.
- Be safe. Limit the amount you drink if you are driving.
- Be courteous to others who wish to taste. After receiving your pour, please step back from the tasting table to do your personal evaluation. Others can then step forward to receive a sample of wine. Step to the side to talk with the winery representative.
- Designate a driver or use public transportation.
- DONT DRINK & DRIVE
Rivendell Winery - Mugeugi (a traditional cold dense soup made from pork) along with Minions (an infinite pleasure for those with a sweet tooth)
Whitecliff Vineyards - South Indian Vegetable Curry ( a spicy chickpea curry with onions, coconut milk and peas) along with Strawberries in their Cabernet Franc.
See you over the weekend with your appetite...

Welcome to the Shawangunk Wine Trail Blog. I'm Debbie and I am the Marketing Director for the trail. I am going to keep you up to date with trail happenings and events. I will share pictures of trail events so you can see how much fun we all are having tasting wine and pairing it with food.
I will also keep you informed of the what's going on with our 11 winery trail members. Whether it be new releases, events, or what's taking place in the wine processing at a given time.
I welcome all comments and suggestions.
I hope to see everyone during our Around the World in 60 Miles event on June 17 & 18. I'll be the one with the camera.
