California Wine Festival, Southern California’s premier wine festival event producer, announces its return to Huntington Beach for two days of oceanfront tasting events on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12. Guests will be able to sample offerings from winemaking regions across California, paired with gourmet food selections from many of Orange County’s fine dining restaurants while experiencing lifestyle exhibitors, live entertainment and expansive coastal views amid Surf City USA’s award-winning beaches.
Overlooking the serene Pacific Ocean at the luxurious Paséa Hotel & Spa, Friday evening kicks off with a Sunset Rare & Reserve Tasting, an intimate experience for dedicated wine aficionados. A sparkling wine reception begins the evening of sampling hard-to-find trophy wines and offers tasting room exclusives and limited-production wines hailing from vineyards based in California’s most sought-after wine producing regions. Top chefs from the Huntington Beach area will serve delicious hot and cold appetizers to pair with the world-class wines.
Throughout Friday evening, guests will have the ability to partake in a silent auction, bidding on coveted items such as exotic wines, tasting tours and dining certificates. Proceeds from this auction will benefit Golden Rule Charity, an organization dedicated to helping people in the hospitality industry during unexpected hardships.
The quintessential wine tasting experience continues with a Beachside Wine Festival taking place at the hotel’s indoor and outdoor spaces on Saturday November 12. The coastal afternoon event will advance culinary education and exploration through one-on-one conversations and tastings with food industry talent as well as winemakers and representatives hailing from California’s top wineries and local restaurants. Attendees will have access to hundreds of premium California wines and regional craft brews. World-class wines can be paired with artisanal cheeses, breads, olive oil, fresh-cut fruit, shellfish, salads, decadent chocolate, cakes and more.
