HMSHost Corp. has uncorked Hudson Valley Wine Bar at Albany International (ALB).
The full-service wine bar and casual-dining restaurant features wines produced by the Gold Medal Award-winning vintners and family-owned wineries throughout the region. New York has about 300 wineries, making it the third-largest wine-producing state.
“Albany International Airport is very proud to showcase the region’s best vintages at Hudson Valley Wine Bar,” says David E. Langdon, chairman of the Albany County Airport Authority. “We are pleased that HMSHost had provided this exceptional dining venue to make our travelers’ day better.”
Offerings will include popular vintages from local wineries including a Five-Point award-winning Riesling Cuvee from Swedish Hill; Brotherhood Winery’s View of the Hudson Cabernet; Dr. Konstantin Frank & Sons’ barrel-aged Meritage, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir; Casa Larga Vineyards’ award-winning Chardonnay and Petite Noir, and Goose Watch Winery’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir Brut Rose Champagne.
The menu features items designed to complement the wine and includes items such as appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and fruit and cheese plates.
“The new Hudson Valley Wine Bar is an exciting new opportunity for travelers to be introduced to New York’s many exceptional wines,” says New York State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker. “New York produces an abundance of grapes and thus, makes a number of award-winning wines, which I am pleased will be showcased at the Albany International Airport for visitors near and far to enjoy. A special thanks to the airport authority and HMSHost for initiating this unique and regional venue.”
Michael Jones, vice president of business development for HMSHost, says the company “developed Hudson Valley Wine Bar to honor the heritage and growing legacy of New York State’s wine industry. It’s our pleasure to bring more outstanding local flavor and tradition to Albany International Airport travelers.”
