The award-winning Pacific Wine + Food Classic is back September 30, 2023 with a waterfront culinary paradise. This year the Pacific Wine + Food Classic is an exclusive VIP only experience that is smaller in scale and larger in greatness. We are taking a smaller footprint at the event which means less sand. What we have added is an extremely exclusive event overflowing with incredible food from the best local chefs, exceptional cocktails, exquisite wines, live music and great vibes. We want you to see why Pacific Wine & Food was voted the #1 food event in the US by USA TODAY.
