Crowds (and wine) will be flowing next month for the 2nd Annual VinDiego Wine and Food Festival at Liberty Station, April 4 and 5. The festival celebrates a shared passion for handcrafted wines, offering more than 200 to taste, paired with delectable bites, a variety of cheeses, artisan breads, olive oils and live entertainment.
In addition to tantalizing the palates of San Diegans, VinDiego donates all proceeds from the silent auction to the charity Freedom Station, a local San Diego non-profit organization giving soldiers a hand up as they face the challenges of coming back to civilian life.
