This is the 1st Annual Balboa Pavilion Grand Wine Tasting event to help raise funds for charity: Fish for Life (a non-profit which enhances the lives of special needs individuals).IMG_20151115_155051~2This event featured a long list of various wineries & guests were able to try out different wines with delicious appetizers while enjoying the beautiful views of Newport Harbor.

Hug L-originale was one of my favorite drinks to try at this event because it was a light, fresh, chilled wine (reminds me of a wine version of a mojito) that would be perfect on a nice sunny day.IMG_20151115_153329-2
