‘Taste of Summer’ to fete LI wines, foods

18 May

OLD BETHPAGE VILLAGE — Taking in many of Long Island’s wineries in one day can be a daunting task. But a new event will gather plenty of them in one spot for a day, making sampling a snap.

The first “Taste of Summer” event, scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. in the Fairgrounds Barn in Old Bethpage Village, will offer more than 100 new-release and featured wines from more than 30 Long Island wine producers.

In addition, products grown on the East End will be paired with the wines by chef Tom Schaudel, co-owner of the new Jewel Restaurant in Melville.

Tickets are $75 for general admission, $100 for VIP which allows early entry. They are available online.

Old Bethpage Village is a 209-acre recreated mid-19th Century American village, with an assortment of homes, farms and businesses.
