PINE BUSH — If you’re a fan of strawberries, chocolate and wine, you’re going to be ecstatic about Baldwin Vineyards‘ 2012 schedule.
The Orange County facility will be holding a “Strawberry, Chocolate & Wine Festival” every weekend beginning in April when it reopens for the season.
Wines that will be offered include Baldwin’s merlot, cherry, brut champagne style, late harvest riesling, blush and apple. And, every weekend Baldwin will be offering barrel samples of new wines that have not yet been bottled.
Proprietors Patricia and Jack Baldwin planted their first vineyard here in 1982, and their second a year later. Today, they produce a portfolio of 15 different wines made from grapes and other fruits.
The winery is located at 176 Hardenburgh Road. Phone: (845) 744-2226.
