What's New in Saratoga

On Saturday, August 20, 2016, the Upper Hudson Valley Wine Trail combined forces with the Saratoga-North Creek Railway for the first ever Wine and Rails Festival. I was so intrigued when I heard of this event. It combined two things I am passionate about, locally sourced food and wine and the Adirondacks. Add to that the Saratoga-North Creek Railroad, something I've heard a lot about, but had never experienced, and I just had to go.
