An alfresco picnic lunch at a scenic location will also be part of the day's activities. The second part of the day will consist of visiting two vineyards along the celebrated Shawangunk Wine Trail to sample some fine local hand crafted wines. What a better to end the day and relax than with a glass of wine. It's a perfect escape from our normal everyday....and who doesn't need that?!
