…Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan. I zipped out of my day job, crossed the Hudson, and hustled over to 18th street. "Where is this tasting?" After a confusing few minutes trying to resurrect the FB conversation with Vitor on my phone, I remembered: he told me 19th Street! Time was wasting. I took the stairs at a fast clip and reached check in at 4:58 p.m. "The tasting is closed." In my early blogging years, I would have slunk away. But I was a veteran: "I …
…surprising that some would have us stay where we are a little longer to rest, to wait. But this city of Hudson, this State of New York, this country of the United States was not built by those who waited and rested and wished to look behind them. This country was conquered by those who moved forward--and so will this challenge be. Those who came before us made certain that this country rode the first waves of the industrial revolutions, the first waves of modern invention, and the first …
The Hudson Valley has yet another new distiller, which continues the momentum of one of the hottest distilling regions in the country!
OK, so last Saturday, while everyone else was working hard, I went out to visit a few places. My primary stop was the first, which was to visit the newest craft distillery in the Hudson Valley, the appropriately named Hudson Valley Distillers, located in Clermont, NY! This meeting had been weeks in the planning, but the hilarious thing was I unexpectedly …
Last summer, my family moved from Brooklyn to a small town in the Hudson Valley. We love our new life, but one thing about the community is not so great: It's predominantly white. What will it mean in the long run if my white children don't see and befriend people who come from different racial backgrounds? And are there steps I can take to instill racial sensitivity and acceptance in my kids despite the fact that they're growing up in an ethnic bubble?
So stoked to get's tale out to the world. He's a true renegade in the burgeoning cider scene. Big thanks to Gabrielle Langholtz for helping get this story told. The guy wild forages for apples in the Hudson that have never seen pesticides nor modern tools. Now that's just bad ass.
Plus, big shout out to my wife ( Kat ) for her beautiful photos. Photography

Bob: Well, I didn't get the vines I was hoping for, and then the rest of the garden started taking off, along with the weeds, so it didn't happen. I did do a little re-con at a local vineyard, about 15 minutes from my house in the Hudson valley, Whitecliff Vineyard. I was tasting there and asked what grew rather …
When I first got contacted about trying a sample of Crown beverage that has recently hit the shelves in a less-iconic brown bag. When the package arrived I realized I was mistaken! I had three small bottles of high-quality maple syrup and a bag of maple sugar from Maple Crown Maple based out of the Hudson of . Really pure, certified organic, and well-acclaimed as a quality producer of maple syrup.and participating in a recipe contest, I thought that it was in reference to the
Governor Cuomo says the statewide wine and grape industry saw a bountiful harvest this year but in the Hudson Valley the weather didn't allow wineries to fair as well as other parts of the state. "Our grape harvest hasn't been that good actually - we had a lot of rain earlier in the summer and we had a lot of problems with disease," Applewood Winery and Naked Flock Cider owner Jonathan Hull said.
