2013 was VinDiego's debut year hosting its wine and food festival against the San Diego Bay at the peak of spring. This year they plan to do it again. April 4-5th, 200 wines from 75 prestigious wineries will be poured for San Diego connoisseurs to swirl, sniff, and sip.
Expecting a sellout crowd of over 2,500, the sprawling Liberty Station will play host. Located in Point Loma, Liberty Station first began as a naval training station built in the 1920s that was recently renovated and re-purposed as a community and art centre. The backdrop is a proud relic of San Diego's military history and future.
VinDiego Wine & Food Festival is excited to exhibit yet another proud piece of history to the forefront, the California viticulturist tradition. Bringing wines in from all over the state to center stage VinDiego welcomes labels like The Hess Collection, Trinchero, Solterra, and Heitz Cellar to this year's festivities.
Of course wine does not shine quite as brightly without being paired alongside delectable plates. San Diego's top chefs and restaurants are also showcasing their culinary craft: Jake's Del Mar, Barleymash, and Solare are just a few.
Tickets are sold separately by day and event ranging from $55 for designated drivers upwards to $125 per ticket.
Proceeds from the events' silent auction benefit their charity Freedom Station that helps severely wounded medically discharged young Marines and Sailors transition from military life to the tough new challenges they face in civilian life.
