Attention wine lovers. The Garagiste Festival is back in Los Angeles on July 11th with more wine than ever. And it returns in one of the coolest venues in the city. Grab a Lyft or hop on the subway to the Wiltern on Saturday to discover the undiscovered and under-recognized artisan ‘garagiste’ wine producers who are making some of the best, most exciting, handcrafted small lot production wines in the world. It’s a great chance to sip and mingle with the wine makers themselves and hear first hand stories about their wonderful handcrafted wines. We’ve met a lot of wine making friends here… and what’s better than having friends that makes wine?
Named by ABC News as one of the Top Nine Epicurean Vacations, the event features over 50 wine makers, pouring over 200 wines, including an Artisanal LA pop-up who will be sampling their best artisan food producers offering tastes of their healthy, local, sustainable and delicious edibles.
The Garagiste Wine Festivals, which first exposed the American garagiste movement, are among the most unique and influential wine events in the world and are the only wine events that exclusively showcase ultra-premium, cutting-edge, micro-production commercial wineries that produce fewer than 1,500 cases (and many under 800) a year.
To preserve an intimate experience for consumers with one-on-one interaction with winemakers, tickets are very limited for the Garagiste Festivals and they are close to selling out. So don’t wait!
