Pacific Symphony Wine Festival Charity Eventadmin
This year’s Wine Festival takes place Saturday, June 2, beginning at 5 p.m. in the iconic Balboa Bay Resort overlooking Newport Bay in Newport Beach.
The Pacific Coast Wine Festival has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Pacific Symphony’s many arts and education programs each year. This sensational evening of first-class wine tasting includes a delicious wine-paired feast and both silent and live auctions offering rare bottles and exceptional experiences!
The evening begins with a reception at 5 p.m. featuring a number of tastings from wines all around the world. Wineries includes: Allora Vineyards, Bedrock Wine Co., Bougetz Cellars, Herb Lamb Vineyards, Pont Neuf Wines, Progeny Winery, Quilceda Creek, Riverain Vineyards, Turiya Wines and Vega Sicilia.
Cumulatively raising approximately $1.5 million for the Symphony’s artistic and education programs over the last 10 years, the Wine Festival supports the Symphony’s education and community engagement programs, including Heartstrings and Class Act. Heartstrings is a major community-wide program providing free access to concerts, hands-on enrichment activities and transportation for a range of underserved local residents in partnership with Orange County agencies. Class Act connects Pacific Symphony to more than 30 Orange County elementary schools each year, enhancing existing school music programs by providing additional musical experiences through the Symphony.
