Wine & Roses Charity Wine Tasting Returns To The Grand Del Mar Hotel On June 7 | Sip On Award Winning Wines While Sampling Dozen's Of San Diego Restaurants

May 15, 2015

The 32nd annual Wine & Roses Charity Wine Tasting will make a lavish return to the luxurious location of The Grand Del Mar Hotel on Sunday, June 7, from 3-6pm.  Put on by the Social Service Auxiliary of San Diego and the San Diego International Wine Competition, this annual fundraiser is the longest-running annual wine competition and tasting event in San Diego County, with all proceeds benefitting the youth summer camp, Camp Oliver, located in Descanso, CA. This ticketed event is open to the public, with prices beginning at $100 for general admission, $150 and $275 for VIP admission, and $2,200 for a VIP Table. We are raffling off 2 GA tickets to attend!

“With the help and generosity of many San Diegans, Wine & Roses was able to contribute over $72,000 to Camp Oliver last year,” said Mary Roberts, event co-chair of Wine & Roses and former president of the Social Service Auxiliary of San Diego. “This year we hope to raise $100,000 or more to help children who may not otherwise be able to enjoy a week of fun and enrichment at a summer camp. We hope that as many people as possible will join us for a wonderful afternoon of fine wine and scrumptious food, and help Camp Oliver fulfill its mission of ‘changing lives, one camper at a time.’”

Since its inaugural event, Wine & Roses has built one of the most revered wine events in the country, featuring expertly-curated wines from all over the world, available to taste and purchase all in one afternoon. The wines featured at the one-day event have been put through rigorous competition, trial and expert tasters during the San Diego International Wine Competition, which was held January 17-18, 2015. The most award-winning wines reappear for trial and auction by revelers and vino-lovers at Wine & Roses. Wine & Roses will also feature small bites from over 25 local, gourmet restaurants, a silent auction, an opportunity drawing and live entertainment. The grand prize at Wine & Roses is an eight day/seven night stay in a luxurious two-bedroom vacation villa that accommodates six at the winner’s choice of a Hilton Grand Vacations Club Resort in Hawaii. Raffle tickets are $50.
