The LAWineFest Returns to Los Angeles this Saturday & Sunday

Sip! Explore! Enjoy! The LAWineFest returns this Saturday and Sunday to Los Angeles. There are plenty of wine festivals in town these days but The LA Wine Fest is our great city’s signature celebration of all things wine!


This year’s two-day extravaganza will take place at Sunset Bronson Studios in the shadow of the historic KTLA white broadcast tower in Hollywood, and will feature more than 30 wineries, food trucks, music, and more.


LAWineFest is in its 11th season and better than ever. The festival attracts more than 5,000 wine enthusiasts who come to taste world renowned wines and artisan beers from across the globe.


Founded in 2005 by renowned wine personality Dr. Joel M. Fisher, the festival has become a favorite among Angelenos and winos alike. Over the years, LAWineFest has established itself as the largest consumer-­oriented wine event in Southern California.


Even better, your good time is a good deed. Each year the event partners with a charitable beneficiary. Proceeds will benefit Sunshine Kids, an amazing organization providing positive group activities and emotional support for young cancer patients.


Tickets are $90 per day (single, general admission), $135 per day (single, universal admission and includes boutique winery tasting), and $20 (designated drivers – no drinking.). General admission covers tastings, commemorative glass, event program, main stage shows, bottled water and vendor samples. Boutique Winery Courtyard admission includes additional tasting stemware.


I’m especially excited for the boutique wine tasting. Wine lovers will have the rare opportunity to taste exclusive small-batch pours from roughly a dozen hard-to-find boutique wineries. Boutique tickets are limited to a maximum of 400 people per day for this one-of-a-kind tasting so make sure to get yours in advance!


Many of LA’s popular gourmet food trucks will also be present so you won’t be sipping on an empty stomach.


Tickets are available at LAWineFest. Festival hours on Saturday are from 3p-7p, and hours on Sunday are from 2p-6p. Hours have shifted slightly from last year to beat the heat. A session for the trade is Saturday from 2p-3p.
