Party Like a Foodie at this Year’s Pacific Wine & Food Classic

August 14, 2018

Imagine lazy August afternoons filled with sandy beaches, turquoise surf, and some of the most delectable cuisines in the United States. That’s not to mention the fab wine list or premium cocktails. If you’re yearning for a new take on fun in the sun, then you must check out Newport Beach’s annual Pacific Wine & Food Classic Aug. 18 and 19.

Here’s what you need to know about this all-inclusive event and how to get a “bite” of the action.

Taste the Delectable Flavors of Summer

Located in the heart of Southern California, the Pacific Wine & Food Classic was recently honored as one of the top ten food and wine festivals in the world by the International Food, Wine, and Travel Writers Association. With more than 100 food choices featured at this year’s event, palate-pleasing favorites will abound. So, prepare to indulge in the season’s freshest flavors crafted by today’s most innovative SoCal chefs around the theme of summer-inspired cuisine.

And, while you’re at it, don’t forget to imbibe a little. The Classic showcases the finest wine and craft beers. Cutting-edge mixologists will also be on hand to craft cocktails worthy of savoring while strolling barefoot along the beach. When you purchase a ticket for this event, it’s all-inclusive, which means ALL food and drinks are covered. So, prepare for a gastronomic experience like none other. (That means, come hungry!)

Don’t Forget the After Party

Be sure to reserve your spot for the swankiest foodie party to hit Newport Beach. On Aug. 18, come out for the “Saturday Grand Finale” at Fashion Island Hotel 5:30-10 p.m. The event will feature Fashion Island’s resident DJ, so don those dancing shoes and get ready for the most delicious after party of the summer.

Sure, you’ll be stuffed after day one of the Classic. But once you get your groove on and start working up an appetite, you can enjoy delicious small bites while sipping prosecco. A complimentary shuttle service to the after party will be provided, and Fashion Island Hotel is offering special room packages including two tickets to the “Grand Finale” event.

The Pacific Wine & Food Classic 2018

The Pacific Wine & Food Classic pairs gastronomic delights with a relaxed SoCal atmosphere filled with sunshine, friends, and laughter. Attendance numbers are limited to ensure the highest quality for guests, so grab your tickets while you’ve still got the chance.

The Pacific Wine & Food Classic takes place at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort, 1131 Back Bay Drive, Newport Beach, Ca 92660. Due to the nature of the event, no individuals under the age of 21 are permitted.
