Extensive precautions, including proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test will be required for entry at all shows. Other safety guidelines include:

  • Mandatory contactless temperature check and wellness screening at the front door
  • All patrons are required to wear a mask or face covering when entering and moving throughout public areas

“Admittedly, social distancing circles and masks didn’t figure into my original dream of hosting outdoor shows on this expansive and beautiful lawn surrounded by vineyards, but these safety measures are part of our company’s hospitality practices, and we all embrace them. I am excited to have this opportunity to finally bring live music to the Hudson Valley and have fans fully experience our food and wine options,” Dorf continued. “We are also very proud to be generating our own electricity from the Hydro Electricity from the old mill on the Wallkill River, making our facility and this concert series a fully net zero user of energy.  It feels good to emerge from this pandemic with an eye on being environmentally conscious moving forward,” Dorf added.

More information about concert series protocols, details about City Winery’s company-wide safety measures, and the lineup for the summer can be found on the website. In result of bad weather and the cancellation of any show, guests will be offered the option of store credit, a restaurant gift card, or a refund.

The Concert in the Vineyard Summer Series at City Winery Hudson Valley is presented in partnership with Townsquare Media station 92.7/96.9 WRRV and Rhinebeck Bank.

“After a 15-month shutdown, we’re all ready for live performances,” said Rhinebeck Bank President and CEO Michael J. Quinn. “Rhinebeck Bank is a long-time supporter of the arts community. As our presence grows in Orange County, this collaboration with City Winery is a way to support a growing business and provide Hudson Valley residents and visitors with great entertainment.”

Jason Finkelberg, Market President, Timesquare Media Hudson Valley said, “The Hudson Valley is very fortunate to have a such an amazing venue to celebrate live music in.  I look forward to an amazing summer in the vineyard and can’t think of a better place to experience my first show in 16 months.”
