The Shawangunk Wine Trail is one of the top tourist attractions in the Hudson Valley, drawing over 100,000 visitors annually. As we look forward to the next season, we invite area businesses such as restaurants, transportation companies, and special attractions to take part in our Tourism Partner Program and take advantage of several valuable marketing opportunities for a very reasonable investment.
Three partnership levels are available, each developed to increase the visibility of your business among SWT visitors and initial inquiries of those planning to visit the Trail. Quite simply, as partners we work together to enlarge the spotlight and grow all of our businesses. Would you like 200,000+ people to see your business ad in print and online for an entire year? Partner with us and we will make it happen!
