On the evening of March 31, more than 500 Orange County foodies and wine aficionados descended upon SOCO in Costa Mesa for the 2nd Annual SOCO Uncorked, a wine and food pairing experience featuring SOCO’s award-winning restaurants and more than 30 wine producers from around the world. Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed small bites from favorite eateries including Taco Maria, Bistro Papillote, Pueblo, and ARC with wine pairings curated by LCA Wine’s Nancy Milby. Prior to the tasting event, VIP guests experienced a private wine seminar with Sommelier Peter Neptune of Neptune School of Wine and a live duck deconstruction demo by ARC restaurant’s executive chef Noah Blom. Set in SOCOï¿½s spacious outdoor courtyard, guests also enjoyed live music by Tijuana Dogs’ Matt Mauser and the Frank Sinatra Tribute Band. Through Uncorked’s ticket sales, wine purchases, and generous donations from guests and sponsors, SOCO Uncorked raised more than $10,000 for local non-profit Project Home Alliance, which will help end homelessness for seven Orange County families.
