New for 2011! LAWineFest will feature the Robert Mondavi Discover Wine Tour, educating guests about wine and entertaining. This famous winery will be recreating their Mondavi tasting room out-of-doors for a unique interactive experience. 100.3 The Sound, LA’s favorite classic rock station, will be making a live appearance; along with buzz-worthy food trucks to ensure that guests have full bellies while they sip! Food trucks include: Marias Italian Kitchen, Wrap Me Silly, No Tomatoes, Crepe’n Around, Slammin’ Sliders, Papas Tapas, and The Sweets Truck. Prices start at just $2 a plate.
Cool yet educational classes on wine and cheese pairing, international wines, and tequila, scotch, & sake appreciation will be offered both days – only $20 per person; tickets available separately.
As an added bonus, Hilton Universal City / Los Angeles will offer LAWineFest guests a special room rate of $169 for the weekend of the event; book online at LAWineFest.com. Designated driver tickets will be available for $20 per day; information on safe transportation options for those without a designated driver available on the website.
Known as the largest wine tasting event in Los Angeles, LAWineFest has the dual mission of bringing wine education and enjoyment to the LA community while supporting local charitable organizations. The event is proudly supported by many of the Golden State’s renowned wine organizations, including: Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance, Santa Barbara Vintners Association, and ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates & Producers). This year’s proceeds will benefit Hollywood Wilshire YMCA and Make-A-Wish of Greater Los Angeles.
