While the majority of us love wine, most of us also would be hard-pressed to pick the perfect meal pairing, spot those subtle flavors and notes or even decipher the difference between a Malbec and Merlot.
This year's San Diego Wine Show has something for amateur imbibers and carafe connoisseurs alike. Venture to the world-renowned Del Mar Fairgrounds on April 27th and 28th to sample hundreds of selections from some of the Pacific Coast's finest wineries.
Savor wonderful whites and refreshing reds while schmoozing with sommeliers about all things wining and dining.
Of course, the benefits of the event merely begin with the bottle. Soak up the Southern California sun while being serenaded with live music. Settle in under the big tent for creative cooking demos and scrumptious samples from famed chefs, along with presentations by topsommeliers. Or, simply stroll the paddock and peruse a bountiful offering of cigars, olive oil, cheeses, chocolates and other irresistible gourmet items that creatively complement the vast variety of vino on hand. Plus, the fairground's 17 Hands restaurant will be open during event hours to ensure you can dabble in drinks with a comfortably-curbed appetite.
It may not be horseracing, but you can place your money on uncorking a lot of fun and excitement at the San Diego Wine Show.
