California Wine Festival Returns to Carlsbad in Style

The festival pays homage to the abundant offerings from winemaking regions across the Golden State, paired with gourmet food selections from local dining establishments, with live entertainment and expansive coastal views.

SUNSET RARE & RESERVE TASTING

Park Hyatt Aviara Resort Golf Club & Spa – The Gardens
Friday, June 28, 2024 | 6:30 PM to 9 PM

Sip on fine wines and taste a variety of delicacies at the beautiful Park Hyatt Aviara Resort Golf Club & Spa’s newly renovated Lawn.

This is an elegant VIP event for true fine wine lovers, located in one of San Diego County‘s most beautiful coastal cities—Carlsbad. The limited number of tickets sell out quickly, so move fast!

A champagne reception is just the prelude to an evening where hard-to-find trophy wines, some already out of circulation and impossible to find, are poured to an adoring crowd dressed in their finest casual/elegant resort wear.

BEACHSIDE WINE FESTIVAL

Park Hyatt Aviara Resort Golf Club & Spa – Heron Lawn

The quintessential California wine-tasting experience—sun, sea, food, wine, and music—all come together at this sun-splashed wine fest overlooking lush rolling hills with the shimmering Pacific beyond at Park Hyatt Aviara Resort’s Heron Lawn.

By 1 PM, the joint is jumping at this Camelot-like white-topped tent village.

Wine oenophiles will find hundreds of fine wines, regional craft brews, and a dizzying variety of foods to sample. Artisanal cheeses, breads, olive oil, as well as shellfish, salads, chocolates, cakes, and more!

A live band keeps the beat for this all-day feast for the senses, where wine and food are king and queen.

Over Two Decades of Celebrating California Wine

“We are thrilled to be back all across the Golden State to celebrate over two decades of world-class wine, food, and music,” said Emily Kaufmann, Executive Director of the California Wine Festival.

“Our visitors enjoy the good vibes present at our coastal locations and dedication to showcasing award-winning wines from across the state’s diverse growing regions. As one of the premier wine events in California, we look forward to raising a glass with both new and returning guests at each of our four beautiful locations this year.”

In addition to the wine and culinary components, each festival aims to advance charitable organizations from each event locale.

Many of the events will feature a silent auction during the Sunset Rare & Reserve Tasting to benefit organizations, including Sandy Feet Initiative, Surfrider Foundation of South Orange County, Golden Rule Charity, and Food Bank of Santa Barbara County.
