A brief history
With Milea Estate Vineyard, Barry and Sang have realized a longtime aspiration of bringing sustainably produced regional wines to New York City while supporting local farmers in the Hudson River Valley.
Sang grew up on a farm in Korea, and is the driving force behind the organic gardens at Milea Estate Vineyard. Sang is also an accomplished equestrienne, practicing the elegant and demanding sport of dressage. A food lover with a discerning palate, Sang and assists our winemaker, Bruce Tripp, with blends.
Barry spent his youth driving trucks and working construction before launching his own business, Milea Auto Group in the Bronx. Through this work, Barry became a leader in importing and selling electric commercial trucks in the United States. In 1984, Barry and his father, “Papa Joe” Milea, purchased the farm that is today Milea Estate Vineyard.
Milea Estate Vineyard is a 112 acre vineyard estate producing some of the Hudson Valley's best wine, boasting an elegant tasting room with stunning views, on-site culinary experiences and luxury accommodation. Recently voted "best winery in the Hudson Valley" by the Hudson Valley Magazine.
