The Capistrano Dispatch

The Vintage—the San Juan Chamber of Commerce’s annual food and wine festival—is slated to take place 6-10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7 at Mission San Juan Capistrano. The event, now in its 21st year, commemorates the migration of the swallows while raising funds for the Chamber and showcasing local restaurants, bakeries, wineries and breweries.

In addition to food and wine tasting, the evening includes dancing and live music performed by Family Style. Dozens of local dining establishments will offer guests a taste of their cuisine, while local wineries, breweries and spirit makers will offer samples of their drinks.

Early bird tickets (through Aug. 31) are $85 per person or $950 for a reserved table of 10. On Sept. 1, pricing increases to $95 a ticket or $1,150 for a table of 10. Tickets are good for all you can eat and taste all night, and should be reserved early as the event sells out each year.

All table reservations must be made over the phone by calling 949.493.4700 or in person at the chamber, located at 31421 La Matanza Street. Individual tickets can be purchased in person, by phone or online at
