This weekend for the 10th year in a row, the LA Winefest will be taking place at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. The event is happening Saturday, May 30th and Sunday, May 31st from 1pm until 5pm. Along with countless wines, brews and spirits for tasting, there will be a number of educational presentations on a variety of topics including wine tasting, artisanal cheese, cooking with spirits, and Australian wines. Live music and DJs will be providing the day’s soundtrack on the lower stage. Bring cash to hit the food trucks and boutiques. You can also purchase bottles of favorite wines.
Besides the usual vineyards, enjoy tastings from winners of the LA International Wine Competition. Also, this year Winefest is introducing its Boutique Wine Garden. A dozen or so boutique wineries (producing 1500 cases or fewer per year hand) have been carefully selected. Only 400 visitors per day are allowed at the Boutique Wine Garden, and an additional companion ticket costing $20 is required.
Tickets are $85 dollars for Sunday and are available on Eventbrite until 8pm Saturday.
