By: Christopher Roney

Wine is probably the closest thing we have on earth to ambrosia, the fabled nectar of the gods. Maybe it is actually, and we're just too mortal to realize what a good thing we've stumbled upon. Well, Newport Beach is trying its hand at celebrating this luscious liquid just a few weekends from now. The Newport Beach Wine Festival is being held by the Balboa Bay Club & Resort from May 25th-27th, and you too can join in on the inebriating fun. The Grand Tasting Gala event will feature over 60 wineries, and the Balboa Bay Club & Resort are putting on everything from an Argentinian BBQ to a Master Sommelier's Wine Dinner. Check out a full brochure of the event here, and be sure to get your room before they fill up for the big celebration.  With California wine country nearby, you're sure to be tasting some of the best wines America has to offer.
