Vino Therapy

| April 9, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY More than 350 oenophiles and young movers and shakers gathered at the newly remodeled Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa for The Social Club’s San Diego Wine Affair, which included a red-carpet entry and reception.THE SCENE White lights strung above rustic wood furnishings, iron candelabras and oversized leather sofas transformed the luxe La Jolla ballroom into an enchanted evening “under the stars.” The real stars of the evening were the vintages from 30 California wineries, like Vineyard 29 and August West Wine. Guests nibbled at risotto and pork tenderloin crostinis, and as the invite promised, the party kept going until the wine was gone. THE HIGHLIGHTS Providing smooth sounds throughout the evening was singer/songwriter and guitarist Dawn Mitschele, accompanied by Jonni Aguilar on the violin. Speaking of music, the night’s top silent auction items were signed memorabilia from pop music’s top artists, including Taylor Swift and Adele. Cheers to an evening of high notes!
