Wine Tasting Cruise on the Hudson Kicks Off The Waterford Cultural Festival

What could be a nicer way to welcome in the month of August than a sunset cruise down the Hudson River aboard the paddleboat Caldwell Belle? How about enjoying the views as you sip some wines from the regions of Normandy and Naples, from whence many of Waterford’s Franco-American and Italian-American residents migrated?

Join us on Friday, August 3 for a two hour cruise embarking from the Waterford Visitor’s Center at 6:15 pm. Your $50 ticket lets you enjoy a sampling of three wines from the Naples and Campania regions, and three from Northwestern France and the upper Loire regions, topped off with Calvados (the apple brandy from Normandy). Scrumptious light hors d'oeuvres prepared by museum staff will perfectly pair with the libations. You may want to bring along a camera to snap a few sunset pictures of this special evening.

Due to popular demand, seating is limited, so please reserve your seat on the Caldwell Belle by July 20th by calling us at 238-0809 or emailing

Payment Due in Full by July 20th, $50 per person.
