Oh For the Love of Wine

An upcoming savory wine event in downtown San Diego

Looking for a fun weekend event to share with some fellow winos?  Imagine yourself sitting on a rooftop deck soaking up the gorgeous downtown San Diego sights and sipping on some exclusive vino and mouth-watering food. Sounds delicious, and if you love wine as much as I do, this upcoming event is right up our alley!

It's a wine release party with Chrispopher Cameron and Costa Azul Wines. It'll be Sunday, July 12 from 5-8 p.m. at the Porto Vista Hotel in Little Italy.

Tickets are a little on the pricey side -- $45, but will get you five skillfully paired food and wine pairings (paired by Chef Robert Conaway from "The Glass Door" restaurant:

  • Costa Azul, Lake County - Sauvignon Blanc 2008 paired with Humboldt fog chevre mousse & paddlefish caviar
  • CCV, Dry Creek Valley - Chardonnay 2008 paired with mini crab cakes and tropical fruit emulsion
  • CCV, Dry Creek Valley - Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 paired with duck prosciutto, melon and cherry balsamic vinegar

  • Costa Azul , "Mariani Ranch" Alexander Valley - Late Harvest Zinfandel 2008 paired with petite chocolate decadence with raspberry coulis -- yum!
