Leaf-peeping is definitely a thing, especially for those in the city. It’s a day-long escape to see the changing foliage on some off-the-beaten-path roads or hikes and then maybe grab some brunch. But that’s not all you can do on a leaf sightseeing tour, especially in the Hudson Valley. There are so many breweries, distilleries and wineries that offer both seasonal sipping combined with amazing leaf viewing. You can curate your own drinking tour (responsibly, please!) to explore multiple areas of the Hudson and enjoy some adult refreshments along the way or stop at any one of these places for an end-of-day wind down while taking in all of the beautiful scenery, too.
Here’s a list of 12 wineries, distilleries and breweries that will be the perfect complement or sweet ending to any leaf-peeping venture in New York’s Hudson Valley.
