This event will showcase a variety of Whitecliff wines with local sourced food pairings prepared by the Chefs Consortium using products from Acorn Hill Farmstead Cheese, Jane’s Ice Cream and Brookside Farm.

“This first ever Fall Art of Local Event showcases both the beauty and the bounty of Ulster County” says Roca, “Whitecliff Winery, located at the base of the Shawangunks Mountains, is generously providing a unique experience to enjoy the food, flavor and scenery of Ulster County.”

Through our partnership with Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, we focus on the importance of local foods in the region while encouraging people to enjoy a great local meal.” says HVB Program Director, Kristin Roca.
