Off the Menu OC

Covering the dining scene in and around the OC

10th annual Newport Beach Wine Festival

x_MG_0614We’ve re-launched the Off the Menu OC blog with a new look, just in time to write about the 10th annual Newport Beach Wine Festival, held at Balboa Bay Resort over Memorial Day weekend.

We attended two wine tasting seminars, the Saturday night Grand Tasting with 50+ wineries and an array of decadent and delicious food, the Sunday afternoon Seafood by the Bay event, and the final event: Cigars, Cognac and Spirits.

We had a fabulous time exploring the intricacies of wine at the seminars, sampling numerous unfamiliar wines at the Grand Tasting, and had a relaxing Sunday enjoying wine and seafood on the lawn and beach at the Balboa Bay Resort.

Here are a few photos from the weekend’s adventures:
