Bernard's Wine Gallery, a wine store with thousands of old and rare fine wines for sale, welcomes both wine neophytes and grizzled oenophiles to sip from its fine vat of liquefied vinefruits. Bernard Rosenson, who owns Bernard's Wine Gallery with his wife Cynthia, also owns Coquelicot Estate Vineyard, the organically farmed vineyard featured in this tasting. Six Coquelicot wines preside in the elegant tasting room, including the 2006 Bordeaux Blend, which won a gold medal at the 2010 San Francisco Chronicle wine competition for its dark, complex taste. Guests will swirl and sip in luxury, blissfully whisking away memories of Twilight Zone episodes where clubs of giant wine bottles attended a human tasting. Tastings run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

The DoubleTree Irvine Spectrum puts a holiday spin on food, wine, and entertainment for Santa's Wine & Food Lovers Holiday Bash. Winemakers serve samples of premium boutique wines, pouring unlimited sips while elucidating the subtleties of their varietals. Meanwhile, chef Louis Giraud assembles two-bite appetizers, which are then dispatched throughout the room by convivial servers. The party vendors also supply samples of gourmet chocolates, cakes, olive oils, and energy drinks. Tucked into various corners, jewelers and retailers peddle artisan goods, and a tarot reader lends insight on future events. Guests who want to spread holiday cheer can bring an unwrapped toy, which will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
