Kevin Zraly

Founder of the prestigious Windows On the World Wine School and holder of a James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award, Kevin Zraly speaks with authority. This is an excerpt from an interview with the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Speaking to the growth of the Hudson Valley wine region, Zraly, a New Paltz resident, said the region is what got him into wine to start. Older wineries like Benmarl Winery in Marlboro and Brotherhood Winery in Washingtonville, as well as newer wineries like Whitecliff Vineyard & Winery in Gardiner and Millbrook Winery established the region for its variety of grapes and flavors.

"It is world-class wine. Not local Hudson Valley, not United States. It is world class."
