The Hudson Valley has become an epicenter of food, wine and spirits that draws countless visitors from near and far, each season.
The Inn at Stony Creek is nestled between several premier wineries that offer a unique experience for wine enthusiasts and aficionados alike. A visit to the Inn places you in perfect driving distance from these great wine tours and tastings for a much-needed romantic getaway.
As America’s oldest winery, Brotherhood features an incredible tour of it’s history and a generous sampling of their award winning wine selection. Tour guides here are incredibly knowledgeable and take you back in time through the classic wines that carried Brotherhood through the financial squeeze of the Great Depression, to the rise and fall of the tourism boom of the early 1960s. With wines ranging from classic Chardonnay to full bodied Merlot and even some playful specialties like sangria and mead, there’s a wine on their flight that appeals to every palette.
One of our bed and breakfast friends in the Hudson Valley, Benmarl hosts a luxurious property to explore and a long list of seasonal events that wine lovers won’t want to miss. They marry the charm of a family farm with the sophistication of a world class winery. Their events have live music to enjoy and plenty of views that will absolutely take your breath away. Don’t miss the Sheep Shearing Festival on Memorial Day weekend and The Sangria Festival happening mid July and again in August. Join their wine club online and save 15% on your winery purchases too!
Located a stone’s throw away from the Inn at Stony Creek, Warwick Valley Winery is a beautiful afternoon of sampling that we can’t recommend enough. They have a moderate selection of whites and reds and an incredible collection of hard ciders inspired by the crisp, fruit flavors of summer. Grab lunch at the cafe or check out the live music performances going on every weekend. Season permitting they also have an amazing pear and apple picking experience with 60 plus varieties available on their beautiful grounds.
All a short drive away, these wineries are the perfect escape to put the finishing touches on your getaway with us at the Inn at Stony Creek.
Sprawl out and soak up the vista views of Benmarl or pop a celebratory cork of Brotherhood’s special reserve and enjoy the outstanding beauty of the Hudson Valley. A visit to these wineries offer a romantic backdrop for sipping some of the wines that have made a huge splash in the small batch and large production wine community.
Cheers to your next romantic vacation with us!
