Ten Summers on the East End

Now in our 10th Summer, Dan’s Taste food & wine events embody the luxury of life on Long Island’s affluent East End, in the Hamptons and on the bucolic North Fork.


They are the premier events of the summer season, frequented by local and international tastemakers, influential business leaders, celebrities, NYC socialites and young professionals, drawing an audience of esteemed guests and sponsors who come back year after year.


We are happy to be back in the summer of 2021 to bring you fun and finely curated outdoor events in a safe environment with all appropriate protocols in place.


This year we will be hosting seven outstanding events. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
