Stars Of Santa Barbara--And Other Upcoming South Coast Plaza Wine Events
Antonello Ristorante has started a "wine mixer" once a month, featuring eight wines for $30 per person, followed by a sale of wines at retail prices. The next one, showcasing a trio of Napa Valley wineries, takes place on Friday, June 26, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Reservations are required: call (714) 751-7153--as is business casual attire (in a state where people go to work barefoot!).
If your pockets are deep enough, bid on the silent auction: among the prizes are brunch for four at the Biltmore Four Seasons in Santa Barbara, a wine tasting and a night's stay at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, and two nights at the Surf & Sand Resort, Laguna Beach.
Tickets, which cost $65 online or $75 on the door, are limited, so call ahead if possible--(310) 451-7600. Proceeds go to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
