Romantic Weekend Getaway in the Hudson Valley's Dutchess County
By car (from New York City): The drive takes a little less than two hours (but construction on the Taconic State Parkway until early November 2012 can add to travel time—consider taking I-87 to the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge as an alternative). To Millbrook Vineyard & Winery, take the Major Deegan (I-87) or the Henry Hudson Parkway North to the Saw Mill River Parkway North. Exit onto the Taconic State Parkway North and travel to Rt. 44 Millbrook/Poughkeepsie. Turn right onto Rt. 44 East. Go one mile to Rt. 82 North. Turn left onto Rt. 82 and go three miles to Rt. 57. Turn right onto Rt. 57 and go 3.5 miles to Wing Rd. Turn left onto Wing Rd. and turn right at the second drive to arrive at the winery. Afterward, return to the Taconic State Parkway and head North to Rt. 199 (Pine Plains, Red Hook, Rhinebeck). Turn left onto Rt. 199 West and drive 3.8 miles before continuing onto Rt. 308 West. Drive 5.5 miles to Rhinebeck.
By train (from Penn Station in New York City): Amtrak runs frequent service to the Rhinecliff Station, and travel time is about 95 minutes. You'll need a car once you arrive; arrange in advance for Enterprise, in nearby Kingston, to pick you up.
