Horticulture Lecture and Local Wine Tasting 8/1/2019

15.00

Join author, winemaker, and local vineyard owner J. Stephen Casscles as he delivers a lecture on 19th Century Horticulture in the Mid-Hudson Valley followed by a tasting of a small selection of local wines. The event will be sure to satisfy the curiosity of both those interested in learning more about Greene County’s rich agricultural heritage as well as those curious to sample the celebrated efforts of contemporary regional vintners. Mr. Casscles, aside from his celebrated work in partnership with Hudson-Chatham Winery, has led a major push to revive both the wine industry and wine tourism in the Hudson Valley in the last two decades. Towards that end he has authored the book Grapes of the Hudson Valley and several white papers on the topic aimed at opening opportunities for wine growers and local vintners. His interests and professional work have allowed him to build considerable knowledge on the history of Hudson Valley winemaking and grape varieties, and the lectures he gladly offers to the public are an extension of his desire to facilitate the growth of this remarkable industry. We would also like to thank Hudson-Chatham Winery for providing selections for the evening’s tasting which will follow the lecture. Members of the Greene County Historical Society are eligible for a discount price to this event, simply email archivist@gchistory.org for details!

The event will be held Thursday, August 1st at 7PM in the Greene County Historical Society’s Vedder Research Library, and all proceeds from ticket sales go to benefit the library’s work. The Vedder Research Library is located on the south side of the Bronck Museum campus in Coxsackie (90 County Route 42, Coxsackie, NY 12051).
