Field Trip Information

Brotherhood Winery , 2017-07-23, 10:30 am

Rain Date: N/A


Location: Washingtonville, NY


Overview Description: Brotherhood Winery


Full Description: Brotherhood is America`s oldest functioning winery dating back to 1839. We will be able to tour the underground cellars with vintage wine making equipment and huge aging tubs for wine. Excavated by hand in the late 19th Century, the dimly lit cellars house over two hundred oak barrels and feature a crested vault containing some of the oldest vintages in America.

We will also have the opportunity to photograph the outside architecture of the buildings as well as the landscapes. And of course, there will be wine-tasting. There is also a nice restaurant on the premises, Café Vinum, created by an award winning Chef, where we can have a nice meal together. They have got the Wine Tourism Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor in 2014.

I hear the tour guides are very knowledgeable about wine making, aging wines and the history of the winery including surviving the prohibition by focusing on church and medicinal wine making.

After the tour, we will progress to wine tasting, and followed by opportunity to purchase wine at relatively low prices.

The winery is quite big, but the vineyard is quite small. Regardless, we should be able to photography both.

There is also a gift shop for souvenirs, but we should be getting a souvenir mini wine glass after our tasting in any case.

Tour and wine tasting passes are $10 per person and we are going to meet at 10:30 am on Sunday July 23rd to make sure we get into the 11 am tour (tours start as people gather). After the tour and wine-tasting, we will progress to the Vinum restaurant, and have lunch together at 12:45 pm.
