The Hudson Valley’s Virtual Cider Week
Now in its 10th year, the Hudson Valley Cider Week is going virtual! Taste and enjoy fun cider themed events at home to celebrate New York State ciders.
The Hudson Valley Cider Week
Cider Week was launched in 2010 by Glynwood as a result of a travel exchange between French and American cider producers. The company recognized that cider tied local food culture with agriculture in the region. As a result, Glynwood strived to develop a cider market that would benefit the local socialization, environment, economy and community. Currently, Cider Weeks are held in the Finger Lake region, Western New York, NYC and the Hudson Valley. Through showcasing their diversity, food-friendliness and quality, the New York Cider Association hopes to cultivate a better appreciation for New York’s ciders.
Due to COVID-19, this year’s Cider Week has been made virtual! Despite being home, online programming will be taking place throughout the week to keep the spirits of this event high. These programs include tastings, happy hour cocktail recipes, orchard and cider mills tours, panel conversations and cider pairings. Additionally, participating cider mills include Angry Orchard Innovation Cider House, Graft Cider, Hudson North Cider Company, Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider and more.
