It’s National Wine Day! You don’t need to go to Napa Valley to enjoy delicious wine. We’re celebrating today by drinking local wine made right here in the Catskills. So cheers campers, here’s to good friends and tasty drinks!
Rustic Ridge Winery
This quaint family business is owned by the Bennet family. Rustic Ridge is a winery and vineyard in the Finger Lakes serving up some excellent locally bottled wines. They also have an array of local Amish-made cheeses and jams to complement their beverages.

Perfectly placed around the Shawangunk Mountain ridge, this is another family-run winery you don’t want to miss. Their mission is to create great-tasting small-batch boutique wines. We recommend the dry Riesling.
Closest campsite: Grotto View at Stone Mountain
You won’t find a more quaint vineyard! The Bashakill Wetlands provide a perfectly warm microclimate for grapes to thrive. Take a visit to hear live music and drink some killer wine.
Closest campsite: Brookside at Camp Relevé
Eminence Road Winery
If you’re looking for natural, unfiltered, and uniquely delicious wine, look no further. This winery isn’t open to the public, but you can email Eminence Road and schedule a tasting. You can also find their wine all over the Catskills in farmers markets.
