Dominique DeVito – Owner

Dominique DeVito grew up on a farm in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia. She went to Mount Holyoke Colllege in Massachusetts, and landed in New York City, where she had a career in magazine and book publishing. She was an editor at the American Kennel Club Gazette magazine, then went on to specialize in pet publishing at Howell, Macmillan, IDG Books, and TFH Publications. She launched several successful pet care series, including An Owner’s Guide to a Happy, Healthy Pet; The Terranova series that was the first to include a care and training CD; and For Dummies books on the care of multiple companion animals.

Dominique launched a freelance career when her twin sons were young, and she has written numerous books on everything from dogs to decorating to cooking, including The World Atlas of Dog Breeds. The learning curve for the winery was steep, but rewarding. Since purchasing the house and land that are now the Hudson-Chatham Winery in early 2006, she has learned more than she ever thought she would about agriculture, wine making, marketing, retail sales, and owning a small business.

She is a huge fan of the riches Columbia County and the area have to offer in everything from local food awareness to cultural institutions to natural beauty.

She serves on the board of the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and Hudson Valley Bounty, and is very active in promoting tourism in Columbia County and the Hudson Valley.
