Eighth Annual LA WineFest


For the third consecutive year, Los Angeles magazine proudly sponsored the eighth annual LA WineFest, “An Exploration of Taste,” at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. This year’s fest offered an exciting blend of wine, beer, and spirits tastings along with a variety of new experiences including the Stella Artois Beer Garden and culinary presentations by Chef Chang Sivilay and Chef Eric Greenspan at the Sub-Zero/Wolf demonstration area. Guests who visited the Los Angeles magazine table were treated to samplings of Grand Avenue coffee and a sweepstakes for a chance to win a luxury weekend at Terranea, LA’s Oceanfront Resort.
