The 2006 Wine Classic: a Celebration of California Wine.
This annual pilgrimage of wines features old favorites that return year after year to the Wine Classic to share their wines as well as wineries that have recently opened their doors for business. Participating wineries are limited to this year's medal winning wineries from the prestigious Orange County Fair Commercial Competition, a well-known and respected competition that the OCWS has been running for 30 years.
In addition to the many wineries and restaurants at the event, other items to enjoy include the live entertainment, a souvenir Riedel wine glass, and a variety of vendors selling wine-related paraphernalia such as shirts, wine glasses, decorative corkscrews, and wine storage products. A raffle and silent auction are also included in the event to raise funds for the OCWS' scholarship programs.
The Wine Classic is a fund-raising event for the OCWS, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) educational corporation. The Society supports wine and culinary arts related scholarship programs at several California institutions including: University of California at Davis, Cal State Fresno, Cal Poly Pomona, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Orange Coast College and Napa Valley College. The Society is also responsible for running the Wine Courtyard at the Orange County Fair as well as numerous meetings, wine tastings and dinners throughout the year to promote wine education and raise funds for their numerous programs.
