We’re Giving Away Tickets!

Foodies and wine aficionados alike are preparing their taste buds for the San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival, which returns to San Diego from November 12 to 19. As one of the largest wine and food festivals in the nation, it has helped to shine a light on San Diego’s thriving food scene. The magnitude of local culinary talent combined with an international showcase of the world’s premiere wines and spirits, and the nation’s trendsetting culinary masters, makes attendance at the San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival a mouthwatering precursor to the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Grand Tasting event takes place on Saturday, November 18, at 12pm on Embarcadero Marina Park North. Take in the beautiful San Diego Bay and enjoy the ocean breeze as you partake in the largest, most talked about wine and food festival in Southern California. There will be over 700 different wines poured at this year’s Grand Tasting, and 60 of San Diego’s top chefs will be competing for a chance to wow guests and fight to win $50,000 in cash and prizes!

The star-studded experience celebrates San Diego’s vibrant culinary community with over 20 citywide events throughout the week, including gourmet dining experiences, tastings, wine and cooking classes and a golf classic. Celebrated national chefs, local culinary rock stars, legendary winemakers and brewmasters, authors, sommeliers and mixologists come together for this San Diego festival. Some of this year’s celebrity chefs include Richard Blais, William Bradley, Suzette Gresham, Brian Malarkey, Rob Ruiz, Andrew Spurgin and Matt Zubrod.

The San Diego Bay Food and Wine Festival takes place at various locations throughout San Diego County. For more information and tickets, visit www.sandiegowineclassic.com. Photos by Joey Hernandez.
