The Southern Region recently enjoyed a tour of the Millbrook Vineyards & Winery in Millbrook, NY. Millbrook Vineyards is located in the Hudson Valley and was the first wine estate in the region dedicated exclusively to the production of vinifera grapes. They produce over 12,000 cases of wine annually, and they are open for guided tours and wine tastings all year round. Members from the Southern Region and Capital Region toured the estate on a beautiful, sunny day, and took party in a wine tasting.
