The Newport Beach Wine & Food Festival is finally here! We had such an amazing time at last years event and as usual, this years line up is sure to impress. Expect new restaurants, delicious wines, and your favorite celebrity chefs at the most prestigious wine and food festival in the country. You can also check out photos from last years event throughout this post and check out the NBWF 2016 recap here.
Being no stranger to delicious events, I can personally tell you that this event is the one foodies save up for all year long to splurge on. The culinary line up is always exquisite offering tastings from 40 top Orange County restaurants, 250 varieties of world-class wine, spirits, and brews, celebrity chef cooking demos and dinners, Master Sommelier tasting panels, VIP events, and live music. This year they are also throwing a new “Havana Nights” after party.
Of course, we have all the details on this year’s epicurean line-up including our exclusive discount code for an additional $30 off your ticket price. I assure you this event will sell out within the next week so if you are planning on attending, definitely get your tickets asap.
