01 Greetings From Hudson Valley Wine Magazine – Linda Pierro and Robert Bedford

Hudson Valley Wine Magazine, now in it’s fifth year, promotes the 30 plus wineries in the Hudson Valley region, some within just 1 hour from New York City. The magazine was founded by Robert Bedford and Linda Pierro, in 2008, after a visit to California wine country, as a way to educate people about the Hudson River wine region, the eithth American Viticultural Appellation in the US that often gets overlooked by the more well-known wine regions in NY, such as Long Island and the Finger Lakes. The magazine is published biannually and serves as a resource guide with profiles of the local wineries and winemakers, wine events, grape varietals, and pairing suggestions. Recently they added profiles of some of the new distilleries, and craft brewers. The magazine is complimentary, and distributed throughout the Hudson Valley region and the tri-state area. You can pay for home delivery of ten dollars per two issues or read it online.
