Wonderful Way to Celebrate Earth Day that Includes Wine
Maybe it is because I am a big wine fan and I have a passion for the earth but the idea of completing a wine trail in honor of earth day just sounds like great Spring fun.
The Hudson Valley is known for its wineries, almost all of them are a destination for people visiting the area. They are also places where we locals enjoy kicking back with friends and taking in the scenery. Sometimes it is fun to be a tourist for a day. After all, we live in the most amazing place.
