— Shawangunk Wine Trail has announced that Clearview Vineyard, a new Warwick-based vineyard and winery, has become the 14th member of the growing trail. Clearview Vineyard will participate in the Trail’s upcoming Around the World event, Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9, representing Greece.

Clearview Vineyard also is celebrating the grand opening of its 3,800-square-foot winery and tasting room at the end of May. Clearview Vineyard is owned and maintained by Frank and Karen Graessle, who purchased the property in 2004 and began growing grapes on the land and bottling fine red and white wines.

“We could not be more excited to become members of the Shawangunk Wine Trail and work with wonderful Hudson Valley winemakers,” said Frank Graessle. “Opening a vineyard and winery has always been our dream, and we hope to share the happiness and joy it brings us with others. Taking part in Around the World is fun way to engage with wine lovers in the community.”

“The members of the Shawangunk Wine Trail are thrilled with the recent addition of Clearview Vineyard,” said Randy Maduras, spokeswoman for Shawangunk Wine Trail, which just added its 13th member in March. “This is an exciting period of growth for New York State wines, and our growing membership reflects that.”

Essential information
Around the World is a two-day event that takes place at each of the 14 wineries along the Shawangunk Wine Trail, allowing guests to go global without leaving the Hudson Valley. Each winery will serve tapas inspired by cuisine from a different country, from the decadence of France to the bold spices of India. The wineries will accompany the tapas with a complementary wine tasting of up to four unique samples.

Around the World will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 8 and June 9. Tickets are good for both days and are $35 per person when purchased in advance, or $10 for designated drivers who will not sample wine. Sunday-only tickets will also be available for $25 per person. Transportation is not included.
