For five years, Coastal Luxury Management has been putting on a party of gallant proportions, known as Pebble Beach Food and Wine. This year, from April 12 – 15, 5,000 attendees, inclined to eating and drinking the good life, mixed and mingled with 75 celebrity chefs (the likes of Daniel Boulud, Jacques Pépin, and Masaharu Morimoto), and downed the intoxicating wares of 250 of the world’s most acclaimed wineries (Veuve Clicquot, Dom Perignon, Domaine Dujac, Cos Estournel, Chateau D’Yquem and Gaja, to name a few).
But the event isn’t just about indulgence. The festival also supports multiple local charities: Monterey Wine Educational Foundation, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and Pebble Beach Company Foundation. Since its inception in 2008, the festival has donated over $500,000. It’s epic eating and drinking – for good!
