Food. Wine. Pretty views. What more could you ask for on a spring evening in San Diego? Enter VinDiego… a new wine and food festival! Read on below to learn more about this fun new festival coming to San Diego this April:
VinDiego, the San Diego Wine & Food Festival, is coming to the Broadway Pier in downtown San Diego this April. This new festival will feature award-winning wines, gourmet food from San Diego’s most notable restaurants, classes with vintners and a silent auction that will donate proceeds to a deserving charity.
What to Expect?
The concept behind VinDiego was to create an event that focuses on sharing a passion for wine with friends and other wine enthusiasts. It’s about being able to relax, explore new tastes and do so without feeling rushed. Thus, VinDiego will only offer wine, so that guests have the opportunity to visit numerous booths at the event while getting to know the wine vendors.
There will be over 300 wines to try from some of the best wineries in California. In addition, 25 of San Diego’s notable local restaurants will offer a variety of gourmet appetizers, cheeses and olive oils.
Five of the top rated wines at the festival will be highlighted in different seminars at the event. Those that attend the seminars will be able to taste and learn about the different characteristics of these consistently highly rated wines.
A silent auction that will donate the proceeds to the nonprofit Freedom Station will feature collectible wines, big bottle private tasting parties, vacation packages, VIP tours of wineries, and other wine-related items for the wine and food enthusiast.
How to Purchase Tickets?
