Join the wineries of the Hudson Valley Cabernet Franc Coalition as they tap the barrels, uncork new releases, and share gems from the cellar. Register here.

Engage with award-winning Legacy winemakers and owners, and sample Hudson Valley-grown Cabernet Francs from both sides of the historic river, including barrel tastes, new releases, rosés, and vintage flights.

A special tasting includes Cabernet Franc wines produced from experimental grapes grown during a clonal and rootstock trial at the Hudson Valley Research Laboratory in Highland, NY. The trial investigated differences in the characteristics of wines made from four Cabernet Franc clones grown on three different rootstocks. These limited wines are bottled to share with the trade.

Experience the Hudson Valley’s signature grape at Milea Estate Vineyard with expansive views of the Valley east of the Hudson River, on Tuesday, May 24th, from 2 PM-4 PM.
