After a two-year hiatus, the Newport Beach Wine & Spirits Festival returns to Balboa Bay Resort this Memorial Day Weekend!

Celebrate the beginning of summer at a Grand Tasting of more than 50 premium wineries and spirits on the waterfront escape’s stunning Bayfront Lawn on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29. Enjoy stunning waterfront views, hors d’oeuvres inspired by coastal cuisine, live music, photo ops, and more.

If you’d prefer a more intimate event, the DAOU Vineyards Wine Dinner on  Friday, May 27 is for you. Paso Robles winery DAOU is renowned for its superior Bordeaux. A curated five-course meal will accompany the DAOU tasting. This dinner takes place in the resort’s Lighthouse Room. This waterfront space boasts glass doors that admit ocean breezes and views of the marina and harbor.

The wineries and distributors represented at the festival include Casamigos, Mezcal Illegal, Hampton Water, Crescere Wines, Cutwater Spirits, the Finnish Long Drink, Ketel One, Patron Tequila, Angeline Vineyards, and dozens more.

Both luxurious and relaxing, Balboa Bay Resort is a Forbes Four-Star resort, while the AAA crowned it a Four-Diamond Resort.
