Benmarl Winery in collaboration with Hudson Valley Seafood and Chef John Vargo are Announcing a very special Pre-Mother’s Day Seafood Picnic at the Winery!

Saturday May 11, 2019 12pm- 6pm

Gather the family together, load the kids into the wagon, and come out to one of the most stunning and beautiful farm -vineyards in the Hudson River Valley. Dress the kids in their favorite play clothes and set them loose to roam free while Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa enjoy a casual yet elegant picnic buffet of Hudson Valley Seafood that can be paired with Benmarl’s award winning wines and draft beer selections. This exquisite feast will be prepared and presented fresh and on the grounds of the winery. Live music will be provided by Rock Steady, and when the kids get hungry from all of the fresh air and play, there will be plenty of soft drinks, wood fired pizza slices, hot dogs and french fries to keep them happy.
