We’re forgoing the usual “What to do on Mother’s Day” post that everyone else seems to be doing (besides, Hudson Valley Good Stuff already put together a great list of Mother’s Day, which was reprinted in Chronogram recently; no point in reinventing the wheel), and, instead, we’re looking ahead to the future one weekend to the Taste of Boscobel on May 19th, 1-4pm at the Boscobel House and Gardens in the Putnam County riverfront hamlet of Garrison. Boscobel will present some of the best food and wine available in the Hudson Valley, including Oliver Kita Catering, Chatham Brewery, East Fishkill Provisions, and the Thayer Hotel. For the cost of a $40 ticket, you are awarded the opportunity to taste delectable, locally-sourced food and wine all in one place while enjoying the picturesque grounds of the legendary Boscobel House while you’re at it. Oh, you’ve never been to Boscobel? This is the perfect way to experience it.

Considering having your wedding at Boscobel? If you register for a wedding walk-through before May 18th, you’re only pay $25 for your ticket to the tastings on May 19th. And kids age 10 and under can attend for free. Even the designated drivers get thrown some love by Boscobel: Food-only tickets are $35.

For more information about what’s going on at Boscobel all year long (like evening yoga classes during the summer and fall and the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival), have a look at their website. House tours are available so you can see first-hand some of the best examples of Federal-era furnishings and art.
