12th Annual Tasting On the Hudson Next Saturday, July 28
SCHUYLERVILLE – What began as a “Journey for Sight” diabetes walk many years ago evolved into a Wine and Food Tasting boat cruise on the M/V Caldwell Belle in 2005. This event proved so popular that the next year it moved to the Schuylerville Yacht Basin, where it remains to this day. The Schuylerville Lions Club now calls it “Tasting on the Hudson” – and the 12th Annual event will occur on Saturday, July 28, from 4 to 7 pm.
Each year, local restaurants, wineries, breweries and hard cider vendors have provided a tasting of their wares. Our event has grown over the years, and people now plan for and look forward to attending it each year! Attendance of at least 400-450 people is expected to enjoy the offerings from (Updated list as of press time):
