Top Ten Cideries, Wineries & Wine Bars

  1. Treasury Cidery
    Treasury Cider was founded in 2016 on the belief that outstanding cider starts in the orchard, not in the cidery. Eco Apple certified and grown exclusively at Fishkill Farms, Treasury apples reflect the Hudson Valley climate and mineral-rich soils from which they come. They are pressed and then fermented slowly at cool temperatures, with little filtration, to create a character-rich drink, rooted in the American cider-making tradition. You can have a tasting of their three hard ciders in the farm's market. Hopewell Junction (845)897-4377 www.treasurycider.com and www.fishkillfarms.com
