It’s described as an evening of food, spirits and music and on Tuesday evening, Sept. 14, following last year’s cancelation due to the pandemic, approximately 250 guests welcomed the return of what was the 26th annual Taste of Warwick
Each year the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce holds A Taste of Warwick as a showcase of the region’s best restaurant chefs, caterers, markets, florists and wine merchants.
The event takes place on the grounds of the Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery, located at 114 Little York Road. The Taste of Warwick highlights local cuisine and also contributes to a sense of community.
This year 24 vendors served gourmet dishes and spirits served under tents set on the winery’s sprawling front lawn as guests had the opportunity to enjoy live musical entertainment provided by the poplar band O.M.G.
Restaurants, breweries and vendors such as Warwick Valley Winery, Drowned Lands Brewery, Jolly Onion, Eddie’s Roadhouse, the Candy Apple Shoppe and many others served tastes of their signature dishes to showcase local flavor and the brilliance of the culinary community.
“We appreciate all of those who participate and who take time away from their own businesses to make our annual Taste of Warwick a success,” Michael Johndrow, the chamber’s executive director said. “We urge everyone to support them.”
