Where to Sip: National Wine Day
Pour yourself into National Wine Day in Newport Beach on Saturday, May 25 at one of these four zin-sational culinary enclaves. Your next grape escape awaits!
Serious Sippin’at The Winery
For those with refined palates The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar is for you! With a selection of 650 wines and a climate-controlled cellar that can hold up to 7,500 bottles, this is the place for serious drinkers and connoisseurs.
You’ll need food to absorb all of that excellent wine and The Winery is well known for its California regional cuisine. From steak to seafood, this is the place for pairing a good glass of vino with a delicious meal.
Sippin’ On The Dock On The Bay at Lido Bottle Works
Some people enjoy that perfect glass of wine while their date craves a craft beer. That’s okay, because Lido Bottle Works offers both options in a stylish, but comfortable setting. Here California wines steal the show including a nice selection of reds, whites and rosés. Beer lovers will also appreciate the extensive choices including IPA’s, ales and stouts.
In case all that sipping makes you hungry, Lido Bottle Works offers a creative, seasonal menu that compliments both wine and beer. Local and sustainable ingredients drive the menu.
Sippin’ A Votre Santé at Marché Moderne
The French famously love their wine, so Marché Moderne is an ideal place to celebrate National Wine Day. The wine list here includes classic French varietals like Bordeaux, Sancerre, and even Champagne.
But it would be a mistake to come here and not partake of the authentic French food prepared by the husband and wife team of Florent and Amelia Marneau. This is the place to appreciate classic dishes like duck confit and coq au vin.
Sippin’ with the Lady at Juliette Kitchen & Bar
For anyone looking for a uniquely curated wine list that combines California and Europe, then Juliette Kitchen & Bar is the right choice. Don’t know which wine to order? Try a flight and sample three, 3 oz. glasses. Or, for those seeking a cocktail instead, this place also offers a menu of creative options.
Executive Chef, Daniel Hyatt, hails from some of California’s top restaurants and brings his expertise to Juliette’s. Choose from scallops, duck breast, rack of lamb and many other classic dishes.
