HILLBURN, N.Y. - Like a hidden gem from the south of France or the Napa Valley, Rockland County's own Torne Valley Vineyards is still being discovered and appreciated by area residents.

Torne Valley Vineyards was founded in 2009, and opened in 2013 by brothers Jonathan and Stephen France - who wanted to 'bring a taste of southern France to Rockland County' - and has the proud distinction of becoming the first fully functioning winery in Rockland County New York.

The rustic, Victorian getaway offers a retro feel, and hosts many events - including a Summer Concert Series, offers catering on any scale, and features a grand ballroom and bridal suite.

With their first vintage bottled in 2013, the brothers offer wine tastings and a small plates menu on weekends, usually with live music.

Jonathan France, Head Wine Maker, now has nine varieties of his own wine, and plans to get into producing craft beer over the next few years.

Check out the video to see Daily Voice talk to owner Jonathan France about the vineyard.
