Welcome Hudson Valley! This is Conor Walsh, host of In Touch, Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley’s Award-Winning Public Affairs and Issues program.  

This week on In Touch, we speak with Ian Bearup, the new head winemaker at Millbrook Winery! His story is truly a tale of two coasts! We discuss how his experience on the West Coast has helped to elevate his winemaking skills, and innovate the New York wine scene! Ian and I also go into Millbrook Winery’s upcoming events like their annual Summer Jazz concert series, featuring a performance from former New York Yankee turned jazz musician, Bernie Williams!

We invite you to join us and listen to a previously recorded conversation between Ian and myself here on In Touch. 



This has been this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the award-winning public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations. We want to thank Ian from Millbrook Winery. To learn more, visit https://www.millbrookwine.com/
