California Gold: An OCWS Wine Classic Event

Your 401(k) heading South faster than the GDP of the Democratic Republic of the Congo? That Newport Beach monstrosity you were gonna flip now worth less than a '97 Toyota Corolla? Life just not friggin' fair? Well, Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BC-AD 17) has some advice for you—“Where there is plenty of wine, sorrow and worry take wing.” So, we suggest you get yourself to the non-profit Orange County Wine Society’s California Gold do at the Anaheim Hilton, because one thing there will be plenty of is wine. In fact, dozens of OC Fair award-winning wineries will be on hand for your tasting pleasure, along with some 15 SoCal restaurants and food purveyors offering their cuisine. Also, a selection of outstanding chocolate creations. Need another reason? Try Aristophanes (c. 450-388 BC)—“Quickly, bring me a beaker of wine so I may wet my mind and say something clever.” Go, imbibe, forget your worries, maybe even say something clever.
