City Winery, which has locations in NYC and around the country, has opened in the Hudson Valley - its first location outside of a major city. The 22-acre project in Montgomery is centered around a converted mill, which has been transformed into a restaurant, barrel room, and event space. Like at their location on the river in Tribeca - the food menu here is pretty straightforward. They’re currently serving burgers, flatbreads, and local cheeses and cured meats at tables on the restaurant’s outdoor patio, which overlooks a river running through the property.
Also on-site are eight acres of vines growing grapes for the in-house wine program. Those wines are offered on tap in the tasting room, with flights available at your table as well as bottles sold to-go. If the idea of drinking local wine in a two-century-old industrial space that runs on hydropower from an on-site waterfall isn’t enough to get you to make the 90-minute trip from the city, then perhaps some live music will do the trick. You can find details about their concert series, as well as reservations for their restaurant, on their website.
