Head Out To The Winery This Summer

Although the heat is breaking records this summer, the tasting room and cellars at Millbrook Vineyards & Winery are as cool as it gets!

Recently I have had the opportunity to head out of the tasting room and pour our wine at the Westchester Farm Markets which we participate in from early summer to early autumn. What a great opportunity to meet folks who may/may not know about our vineyards and winery. I especially loved pouring our Tocai Fruilano which was kept nice and chilled on ice! Everyones faces lit up as they enjoyed the crisp, clean acidity of our Tocai.

We here at Millbrook LOVE NY but we also LOVE TOCAI. Tocai to me is summer in a glass. If you have tasted Millbrook’s Tocai, you know what I am talking about. If you haven’t I want to invite you to pack a picnic, jump in the car and head on up to the vineyard.

This past spring we upgraded our picnic area and added a larger tent, some great new, picnic tables and positioned the tent to take full advantage of a beautiful view of one of our four ponds, our Castle Hill vineyard and the lanquid vistas our property has to offer. It just so happens that this area seems to catch the breezes that Millbrook is blessed with as well.

Whether you are seeking tranquility or looking to expand your wine knowledge, we can accommodate you. Our tours are informative and our tasting room guides are fun! Our wine tasting covers a variety of styles and tastes. I haven’t even mentioned the current art display in our centuries old barn loft or our incredible gifts for sale in our shop.

So, stop by and pick up a bottle of Tocai and purchase a set of our newly arrived, recycled wine bottle wine glasses, a gift as unique as our Tocai and as beautiful as our vineyard.
