Vertical Tastings at the Hudson-Chatham Winery

The Hudson-Chatham Winery will host a series of events entitled Vertical Tastings. Each session will offer tastings of a particular wine through the years. This will give wine lovers the chance to learn more about Hudson-Chatham wines. You'll be able to see how they're aging and what you can expect from future vintages!

Each vertical tasting will feature several different vintages of the same variety offered by the vineyard.

Each tasting will offer a minimum of five vintages of the wine being poured, from barrel samples of the upcoming 2013 vintages to those we've cellared from our earliest vintages.

Guests will be invited to compare the difference between aged and "young" wines, as well as the unique flavors created in each vintage by different growing conditions. This tasting event illustrates how the characteristics of wine change with age.

Each vertical tasting will be enhanced with food pairings created by Blima's Catering. PLEASE NOTE: Attendance is limited to 20 guests for each tasting date. Book now to ensure your place!
