Wine Extraordinaire Returns in 2017
Pouring 100's of California Wines Under One Roof
We regret to inform you that the 2017 Wine Extraordinaire has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond the control of the Orange County Wine Society. On the afternoon of February 22nd we received a call and subsequent e-mail from the Orange County Fair & Event Center Board that contains the following notice:
âIt has come to the attention of the OC Fair & Event Center that a political march and related protests have been planned on the streets adjacent to OCFEC for March 25. In the interest of public safety, staff has made the decision to close the fairgrounds on March 25 and 26. This decision was based on collaboration with the Orange County Sheriffâs Department, the Costa Mesa Police Department, the Attorney Generalâs Office and Board leadership.
Public safety, and the safety of our property partners and employees is of the utmost importance, and we sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation. We stand by to help any we can.â
Thank you to all who expressed an interest in our event. Refunds are being processed to all ticket purchasers.

Uncork and Enjoy Yourself
Together with the fine wines being served, enjoy small tastes from our local restaurants. You may discover a new âfavoriteâ dining establishment to impress your family and friends.
Sip for a Cause
Place a bid on one of our silent auction items and enter an opportunity drawing for a fine bottle of wine, some autographed by the winemaker. This fundraiser helps the OCWS provide scholarships in enology, viticulture and culinary arts to students in several California colleges and universities.
