Hudson Valley bed and breakfast provides the first ornament and helps guests sip their way to a wreath full of trinkets at the “Fineries at the Wineries” event this holiday season at the Shawangunk Wine Trail

Are you up to the taste and decorate challenge? Each year the Shawangunk Wine Trail puts together its popular “Fineries at the Wineries” event where visitors get to taste wine and add a trinket to a holiday wreath. This year, the Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast, located within the picturesque region, has put together a ‘Sip and Decorate’ package, where they’ll trim your wreath with its very first trinket, as you head off to sip and decorate your way to more than a dozen wineries along the Shawangunk Wine Trail.

“This is an extremely popular event in the Hudson Valley and guests plan for it well in advance,” said Dena Finneran, who co-owns the award-winning country inn with her husband John. “The trail, and the wreaths our guests come back with, are truly spectacular.”

The Shawangunk Wine Trail will issue each couple who attends “Fineries on the Wineries” a handmade grapevine wreath and a souvenir wine glass. The guests may then visit up to 15 wineries, taste wine, and collect their trinkets.

The Fineries at the Wineries event takes place from 10 am to 6 p.m. on the following Saturdays and Sundays: November 19-20, December 3-4, and December 10-11, 2016.
