About Us

WELCOME!

We’re a small family run farm, vineyard + winery in the Hudson Valley. We are passionate about grape growing & exploring the possibilities of winemaking right here in Milton, NY. We grow 10 acres of wine grapes {another couple acres of seedless table grapes, too!} we also source from other local growers here in the Valley. Our hope is to make quality estate wines that speak to their origin and that you love to drink with family & friends!

Nostrano Vineyards Tasting Room sits atop a picturesque hill overlooking a serene farm + vineyard vista. Enjoy our wines, local cheeseboards & regular live music indoors at our rustic chic tasting bar or al fresco taking in the beautiful Hudson Valley sunsets.

Roots run deep…

Bozzo the grandson of Joseph Trapani was born and raised on his family’s farm in Milton, NY; attended SUNY ESF at Syracuse University acquiring his Bachelors degree in Landscape Architecture.
