A Taste of Wilton has a new location this year — the Wilton Historical Society — where hundreds of attendees will “sip, swirl and savor” the best foods and drinks local restaurants and caterers have to offer.
The venue for the eighth annual foodie event on Monday, April 20, has been moved indoors because of rainy weather in past years, said Janeen Leppert, executive director of the Wilton Chamber of Commerce, which runs the event each year.
“The Taste has always been an outdoor event, but in the past few years we encountered spring showers,” she said, “which made it challenging for our food and beverage purveyors and attendees.”
Leppert said the change of location has been “well received by both exhibitors and attendees.”
“We are delighted to bring the highly anticipated annual tasting event for Wilton foodies and wine buffs to the picturesque grounds of the Wilton Historical Society,” said Leppert.
“It’s the ideal venue for local chefs, culinary personalities, sommeliers, and restaurateurs to showcase their products to discerning customers who want to sample delectable cuisine and make connections for future business.”
Attendees of last year’s event will see some familiar exhibitors like Bianco Rosso Wine Bar & Restaurant, Little Pub, and Sweet Pierre’s, as well as some new ones, including — but not limited to — Café Ruche, Heavenly Bites and Jersey Mike’s.
