Pismo Beach is set to host the 5th Annual Chardonnay Symposium (TCS) at Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa in Pismo Beach, from May 16-18, 2014.

As the country's premier event for education and celebration of Chardonnay wines, the mission of TCS remains that of bringing together Chardonnay producers, winemakers, sommeliers, and wine journalists, as well as both food and wine enthusiasts from all over the world, for an in-depth exploration of the world's favorite grape.

Now in its 5th year, TCS participants can expect the same esoteric and educational experience, in the exploration of the world's most popular grape varietal, in addition to the highly anticipated and TCS Seminar Panel Discussion. Moreover, this year, TCS has expanded the scope of wines that will be represented, all the way from Santa Barbara to Napa Valley and Sonoma County, in order to give a more comprehensive look at Chardonnay.

Also, TCS holds two expertly, prepared Chardonnay wine dinners, one at Lido Restaurant and a paulee-style dinner at Tolosa Winery. For a schedule of events and a list of participants, visit the Chardonnay Symposium website.
