The festival is a two-day event featuring New York wine and spirit producers, craft beer, food, arts and crafts, and artists all together on a summer weekend. The purpose of the event is to build connection between cultural, community, green living, culinary and musical entities.
A number of us enjoyed a Krupnikas created by Kas Spirits. Krupnikas is an alcoholic drink that is popular in Lithuania as well as Poland. Legend has it that Benedictine monks created the tasty concoction during the 1500's. The whiskey is mellowed with sweet honey, vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom, caraway seeds, cloves, and saffron.
It was a favorite of mine - Yum!
We stopped by the Robibero Winery booth. I enjoyed a taste of the chardonnay which delighted with vanilla, apple and crisp acidity. "It" Tech Finance GuruMicheleenjoyed the Rabbit’s Foot wine, a smooth blend of 75% Baco Noir, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, producing a bright and lively red with velvety texture.
A bit later we decided to have lunch and headed over to check out several tasty food trucks. We decided to try out the Clock Tower Grill who is commited to serving and sourcing as much local-sustainable-organic & GMO free food as possible.I enjoyed a tasty lobster roll, while "It" Holistic Wellness Carrie filled herself up with a short rib club sandwich and fries.
