Segment-1: Wine Events - San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival, Nov 14–18, 2012 – Founders, Ken Loyst & Michelle Metter
 
01: As one of the largest wine and food festivals in the nation, the San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival has helped shine the light on San Diego's thriving food scene. The magnitude of culinary talent in San Diego combined with an international showcase of the world's premiere wines and spirits, and the nation's trendsetting culinary masters, makes attendance at the 9th Annual San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival a mouthwatering feast and precursor to the Thanksgiving holiday. Of special note at this year’s festival is a once in a lifestyle opportunity: “8 Decades of Barolo and Italian Luncheon.” Ken Loyst and Michelle Metter are founders of the festival and of Fast Forward Event Productions in San Diego, CA.
