The weather was picture perfect on Tuesday evening, Sept. 10, and with more than 300 tickets sold, it was a record turnout for the 25th annual Taste of Warwick

Everyone gathered in the huge tent and on the patio to mingle with friends and sample gourmet dishes and wine provided by 26 vendors.

And during the evening, the poplar band, Longchamp & Manzo, provided live musical entertainment.

Each year the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce holds A Taste of Warwick as a showcase of the region’s restaurant chefs, caterers, markets, florists and wine merchants.

The event takes place on the grounds of the Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery. And, as the Taste of Warwick highlights local cuisine, it also contributes to a sense of community.

During the 25 years that the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce has hosted this popular event Peck’s Wines and Spirits holds the record for having participated every year. The runner-up is The Landmark Inn, which only missed one year due to an unavoidable circumstance.

The chamber’s Executive Director Michael Johndrow thanked the vendors, the owners of the Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery and the sponsors for their generosity all these years.

“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,” he said. “We urge everyone to support them.”
