San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival Grand Tasting


This last Saturday, November 23, 2013 I was blessed to attend the Grand Tasting Event for the San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival. Like every year, it was held at the beautiful Embarcadero Marina Park North. 
It was so beautiful outside, the perfect day for this event. Thousands of people showed up to enjoy this event. 

We were able to take in the beautiful San Diego Bay and enjoy the ocean breeze as we partook in the largest, most talked about wine and food festival in Southern California. 
It is glass clinking, celebrity watching, swishing, swirling, mouth watering kind of fun! 

With over 700 different wines being poured at this year's Grand Tasting, we couldn't make it to all of them. We got to taste from a wide range of domestic and international wineries, discover new labels to add to our home collection, and visit old favorites.
My favorite part is tasting 70 of San Diego's Top Chefs culinary creations. I love watching the chef's in action!
What makes it so amazing is these chefs pulled out all the stops to wow us for their chance to win over $50,000 in cash and prizes! So the food was top notch!

As if 70 chefs weren't enough they also brought together over 30 gourmet food companies for us to nosh our way through.

Even if you don't like wine. There is plenty of cocktails and beer to enjoy. If you are just there to eat, they even have designated driver tickets at a significant discount. 

Celebrity chefs were on hand in the Festival product booth to autograph copies of their best selling cookbooks.

Once again, this was the San Diego event of the year. If I could only do one event each year, it would be this one. The dates for next year have not been announced yet, but it is almost always in November. So make sure you make it next year!!!
