Live music is nothing unusual at Warwick Valley. It hosts live, free performances from 2 to 5 p.m. every weekend on the patio, weather permitting, or inside on Doc’s Cider House stage. Once or twice a month, it holds evening concerts and events in conjunction with dinner at its Pané Café. And, five times a year it hosts weekend-long music festivals on its Orchard Stage.
Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery is located at 114 Little York Road in this Orange County community.
