Taking place at the historic Raleigh Studios on Melrose in Hollywood, the 8th Annual LAWineFest promises exploration, fun & education, showcasing wines from 13 countries, brews, artisan cocktails, food trucks, tasting seminars, live entertainment and much more - all in support of L.A.’s own Food Forward, the non-profit group that works with home and business owners to glean fruit from ornamental trees in order to feed the Southland’s hungry.
The 2013 event shines the spotlight on fun and discovery, serving up beer and spirits alongside food and drink demonstrations featuring Celebrity Chef Eric Greenspan. Plus Twitter-ific food trucks and, of course, hundreds of award-winning wines from around the globe. One-day tickets ($85) or Weekend Passes ($110) get ticket-holders unrestricted access to sample libations from near and far, accompanied by rockin’ live entertainment; food truck fare starts at just $2 per plate. For those wanting to take home a taste of LAWineFest, K&L Wines in Hollywood will be on-site to take orders and make wines available for instore pickup or home delivery.
LAWineFest is L.A.’s largest and longest-running wine tasting event, with the dual goals of enhancing Angelenos’ appreciation of all things epicurean and supporting local charitable organizations. LAWineFest was founded in 2005 by renowned wine personality Dr. Joel M. Fisher, and continues to be the Southland’s signature celebration of wine, beer, spirits and food.
