It seems like new wine and food festivals are popping up every weekend. And we're certainly not complaining. Who doesn't like the opportunity to sample different plates from multiple restaurants all in one location? There's that and the copious amounts of booze.
Benefiting the Poverello -- an organization aimed at helping poverty-stricken individuals living with HIV/AIDS with food and other resources -- the festival takes place this Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m. In addition to the food and booze, the event includes a wine mixer, fundraiser, silent auction, art, and live music. The garden is slated to be transformed into a Napa Valley "village."
Wines will be provided by Chill Wine Lounge, Wines for Humanity, Prestige Wines, Vizcaya Wines, Ya-Ya Wines, and the official sponsor, 67 Wine and Spirits.
