newport beach wine and food festival

Back in September –  Newport Beach had their first food and wine festival.  Historically they had “taste of” like events but nothing of this caliber and for a city by the water it was time for a group to step up and create an amazing event. Newport Beach Wine & Food Festival was held at the beautiful Newport Beach Civic Center which allowed for indoor rooms for panels & demos as well as grand tasting pavilion for the high end wines and local restaurants.  I was able to attend the event through volunteering with Project Hope Alliance – one of two charities benefiting from this event.

Here are my highlights in photos from the two days when I wasn’t helping Project Hope Alliance (note – all photos are wine based, food allergies and preferences limited my food options):

I was also excited to taste at Arcadian – I don’t make it to their tasting room nearly enough as a member! Definitely looking forward to the event next year and more volunteering with Project Hope Alliance.
