It's always a huge bummer when a popular business closes down in the Hudson Valley. However, despite the bad news there still can be some positive things that come out of it.  Palaia Winery was a fun winery located in Highland Mills, NY and many residents were saddened when they announced that they were closing their doors for good. It was recently announced that another Hudson Valley company will be taking the property over and it's all thanks to a large amount of money they received.

According to officials, Spirit Lab Distillery (located in Newburgh) will reportedly be expanding their manufacturing capabilities by renovating the Palaia Winery. The Spirit Lab Distillery does have plans to grow and harvest their ingredients on the property and has plans on keeping everything in production local.

Of course, it's expensive to do a renovation like this and a $400,000 grant helped make it possible. Governor Kathy Hochul recently announced that more than $27 million dollars were awarded through the Regional Economic Development Council Initiative. The funding will support great projects that will help with each region's goals.

It will be exciting to see what renovations Spirit Lab Distillery will do and we're glad the Palaia Winery will still live on, just in a different way.
