Oenophiles Flock To Support The Warner Theatre

Rachel Louchen reports from Torrington. The Warner Theatre’s Annual Wine Tasting kicked off the holiday season on Friday, November 21. A critical fundraiser for the Warner, proceeds raised go not only towards programming theater, music and dance performances, but for arts education as well. The signature event usually sees a large turnout, but this year surpassed any of the previous years’ attendance, with the community coming out to in droves to support the touchstone theater. As vendors poured foreign and domestic wine, delicious food and beverages were provided by local area businesses throughout three large rooms, with the special VIP section offering more drink choices and live jazz.
