Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival

Last month, I had the pleasure of going to the Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival with fellow blogger babe Kimberly Luu of According To Kimberly.

It was my first time covering the Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival . I was really excited to try local Orange County restaurants and sample wine from winemakers around the world.

My favorite restaurant to try was Vaca, favorite dessert was Sweet Lady Jane, and favorite wine from Gamble Family Vineyards.

(Editor's Note: Many thanks to Newport Beach Festival for allowing us to cover this year's fantastic event and Kimberly Luu.)
