Tousey Winery are thrilled to see a new cafe open up attached to the tasting room. With southern Columbia County now a hot spot for craft libations, Heirloom Cafe is a welcome addition to the neighborhood, both for locals and tourists. Read their story below.
Joseph and Caleb would like to introduce you to heirloom Café:
Heirloom Café is the new kid on the block picking up were Café Gerard left off. We are former students of the previous owner, Gerard Viverito, and we are very proud to carry on his legacy and watch the café growth through the coming years. We are Culinary institute of America Graduates and met during the Food Service Managment class. We Immediately became friends and pushed to open a restaurant together upon graduating. It took many months and a lot of searching, but eventually they strolled upon Cafe Gerard. The location was close to their alma mater and in the beautiful Hudson valley, A place that they both cherish and love so much. Both Of us spent time in Southeast Asia and Italy learning the cuisines and the cultures through the CIA. Together we will feature speciality nights throughout the week from cuisines from across the globe.
Together we strive to make our childhood dreams of opening our own place come true. We hope for the cafe to be a place where not only the locals can come in but for all others as well. We want the Cafe to be a place where everyone feels at home at their friendly neighborhood cafe and to grow alongside the community.
We look forward to seeing you at the cafe, and can't wait to get to know the local community!
