"Who loves not women, wine and song remains a fool his whole life long"

I don't normally bro down with red varietals but it's all they had...

The Shawangunk Wine Trail is nestled betwixt the Shawangunk Mountains and the Hudson River. The Trail, just 85 miles north of New York City, is composed of ten family owned wineries from New Paltz in Ulster County to Warwick, in Orange County.

"While taking a tour of the wineries along the Trail, always in view of the mountains to the west, one is reminded of the cataclysmic forces of earlier geological periods when the earth heaved up forming the great folded ridge of conglomerate rock. And the more recent glacial period that scratched and gouged the scenic cliffs and formed the unique chain of emerald lakes perched atop the ridge. " That was from the brochure. I would never say "cataclysmic forces".
