Tree Lighting 2011

Tree Lighting 2011 December 2 7:30 PM

Many years ago, during a tree scouting trip, the Garden’s Division of Rockefeller Center discovered the thirty-five foot pine tree that lives in the middle of Brotherhood Winery. Several offers were made to purchase the tree for the Rockefeller Center tree lighting celebration, but the winery chose not to part with it. Instead, the winery decorates the tree with lights every year in celebration of the holidays and this year will be no exception.

Brotherhood Winery would like to invite everyone to the first annual Village of Washingtonville Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Concert featuring student choirs from local schools.

Admission is FREE.

Friday, December 2 – 7:30 PM


Brotherhood, America’s Oldest Winery opens Grand Monarque Hall our historic landmark building that was destroyed by a fire in 1999.

The Grand Monarque Hall, or the Grand Salon as it has often been called, is an early 19th century stone building with towering ceilings, hand crafted wooden floors, exposed wooden beams and ten foot round antique wrought iron chandeliers that all come together in a historic setting full of old world charm.
