Emerson Resort & Spa offers a multitude of relaxing accommodations—fine dining, exquisite spa treatments, and spacious rooms. Yet, there’s no better way to commemorate a romantic getaway in Upstate New York than to visit a Catskills winery. We have three fantastic New York winery suggestions. Bond with your significant other while sipping your favorite vintages and survey the magnificent mountain scenery near our Catskills resort. 

Benmarl Winery 

Benmarl Winery’s 37-acre estate overlooks the archaic Hudson River and lays claim to the oldest vineyard in America. Spend a few hours sipping their award-winning wines, touring their cellars, and meandering through the historic vineyard. If you taste something you like, bring a piece of their Catskills winery home with you and purchase your favorite bottle (or bottles!) from their onsite shop. 

Glorie Farm Winery 

Regardless of your wine preferences, you’re sure to find something you’ll adore at Glorie Farm Winery. Reserve a table with a view of the serene Upstate  New York countryside, and enjoy a wine flight with a complimentary virtual tasting session. In addition to their delicious vintage offerings, Glorie Farm Winery also provides food, courtesy of Empanada Nirvana, on weekend evenings, and features live music every Saturday. 

Robibero Family Vineyards

You’ll find Robibero Family Vineyards nestled in and around the magnificent Shawangunk Mountain Ridge. Their Catskills winery tasting sessions operate on a first-come, first-serve basis daily from 11:00 am to 5:30 pm and cost $15 per person. After you’ve identified your favorite wines, pick out a bottle or two from their onsite store. Pack a few of your favorite snacks for an idyllic vineyard picnic.
