The 2008 Central Coast Wine Classic is scheduled for Thursday through Sunday, July 10 through 13. The annual Black-Tie Dinner at Hearst Castle will be held Thursday, July 10, and the rare & Fine Wine & Lifestyle Auction will be held at the Host Auction Venue, the Avila Beach Resort, in Avila Beach on Saturday, July 12. The 2007 Central Coast Wine Classic reached and topped the holy grail of charity wine auctions by gaveling over one million dollars in auction bids, thereby placing the annual food and wine extravaganza among the top such auctions in America. The comprehensive food, wine and lifestyle event featured a broad spectrum of activities, including Dinner at Hearst Castle and multiple fine wine-oriented educational symposia, luncheons and winery dinners.
