The weekend weather was ideal for outdoor activity and hundreds of wine enthusiasts were on hand for Putnam County’s 7th annual International Wine and Food Fest on the grounds of the Iron and Wine Restaurant on Route 22 in Patterson.

The two-day event showcased New York’s renowned wine, ale and spirits producers, along with food purveyors, artisans and craftsmen in addition to local and international artists.

Organizers said a portion of the proceeds from the festival will be donated to the Green Chimneys School to further the education of children with special needs.
