Local Wine With a French Touch
Located along the Shawangunk Wine trail, Brimstone Hill Vineyard & Winery was started by Richard and Valerie Eldridge in the spring of 1969 and was only four acres in size. In 1980 the Eldridge’s began by selling two wines; a 1979 Vin Rouge and a 1979 Vin Blanc. Today, the Brimstone Hill label boasts more than 8 wines, including a sparkling wine made in the traditional “Methode Champenoise”, a Chardonnay, a Cabernet Franc, and a Riesling.
Today the winery has grown to over 13 acres and is also home to a cozy tasting room, where guests can overlook the vines. They also added a large pole barn to the property in recent years to accommodate the need for more storage and wine production. The barn is large enough for groups and parties up to 150 persons.
The Eldridges aim to produce quality wines that have a French character to them, while still maintaining a price similar to the better products of the Loire Valley, Burgundy and Champagne.
