Wine lovers will once again enjoy a festive summer evening of wine tasting under the stars to benefit Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire, when Wines and Wishes returns to Kaleidoscope Center on Thursday, July 30 from 6 to 9 p.m. The fifth annual wine tasting will feature nearly 20 boutique and renowned wineries including Justin Vineyards, Cakebread Cellars and Rombauer Vineyards, along with bites from Kaleidoscope’s award winning restaurants, live jazz, raffles and more.

Small bites will be offered throughout the evening starting with specialty cheeses served by Chef Starr Cornwall. Riptide Rockin’ Sushi & Teppan Grills will be center stage as Master Sushi Chef Ken Cruz prepares freshly made sushi, while other Kaleidoscope restaurants tray pass small bites for all to enjoy. Donna B’s Bakery will be providing sweet treats, and Milk Box and Market 2 Plate, both opening later this year at Union Market Mission Viejo, will be serving samples.
