Welcome Aboard, Debbie!

Hudson Valley Wine Goddess joins festival line-up

The Hudson Valley Wine & Food Festival is happy to announce the participation of Hudson Valley Wine Goddess Debbie Gioquindo in this year’s festivities, live and in person. A true wine expert and advocate of regional wines, Debbie has been presenting her fabulous and informative wine seminars every year at the festival, as well as hosting the annual Hudson Valley Wine and Spirits Competition during the event. On Saturday, September 11, says Debbie, she’s planning to do a seminar on pétillant naturel (commonly referred to as pét nat) wines, a bubbly variety that somewhat resembles champagne.

You can learn much more about Debbie Gioquindo’s considerable expertise and her helpful, down-to-earth approach here. The 20th Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest is taking place at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday, September 11 and 12, 2021. For more information, or to contact the festival team or subscribe to the festival mailing list, go here
