This is a two day event, May 5th and 6th and we have a special code for you to save cash on tickets.

If you love wine, chocolate and food this event is just what you need to really enjoy this weekend and help out a great cause.

It's the 5th Annual Hudson Valley Wine & Chocolate Festival and this year it takes place this Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Patterson Recreation Center located at 65 Front Street in the Village of Patterson.

This awesome two day event will bring to us a line up of various tastings that are free with your admission, hosted by an amazing selection of local Hudson Valley vendors.

The event will give us all the opportunity to sip, sample, and shop directly from Hudson Valley and other New York State wineries, craft distillers, craft beer and hard cider makers.

If you plan to go you will also get to enjoy dozens of products including candy and confections, fine foods, crafts, health and beauty products, and more, plus they will have food available for purchase from six area food trucks offering everything from empanadas to farm to table cuisine.

We had a chance to talk in studio with Jami Anson about the event....
