City Winery is the perfect local escape for summer fun in the Hudson Valley, and they've just launched a whole new lineup of shows. With so many people ready to get out and enjoy great food, tasty wine and live music with family and friends, City Winery in Montgomery is excited for you to come visit the vineyard for a relaxing day out.

At City Winery you can plan a full day escape from reality without ever leaving the Hudson Valley. Stop in for lunch and a glass of wine or plan a full day around their Concerts in the Vineyard series.

I don't know about you, but Sunday brunch with my best girls sounds like a pretty solid plan right now, and if that brunch includes amazing views and is followed up with a live show, I'm sold.  City Winery's Sunday Brunch menu in The Barrel Room or The Patio offers something for everyone, with a nice mix of breakfast and lunch options. The Winemaker's Breakfast is my pick, hands down!

After brunch, you can make your way to the vineyard, wine in hand, and get settled in for one of their great shows which are typically scheduled at 2pm so you don't have to worry about being out too late.

Sunday, August 1, City Winery welcomes Raul Malo, lead singer of The Mavericks. Sunday, August 15, singer/songwriter Dar Williams will make her way to the vineyard. Did you know she's a local, hailing from Mt. Kisco, NY?  If you're looking for the one-woman-show experience, don't miss actress, singer and comedian Sandra Bernhard in the vineyard on Sunday, August 29 for her Madness and Mayhem show.

You can find the full list of City Winery scheduled events, along with ticket information, here.

If a mid-week visit is in the cards for you, City Winery is now open for weekday lunch, with delicious shared and large plate options, mouthwatering desserts and, obviously, a great wine list.

Don't forget, you can also book a private event on the grounds of City Winery for any celebration. The restored 130-year-old Montgomery Mill makes the perfect backdrop for any occasion, and they offer a number of different setup options for your celebration. For private event information and bookings check out their options here.

City Winery invites you to make plans anytime to experience great live events and amazing food at their beautiful Hudson Valley location. For easy online booking and reservations visit their website.
