11th Annual LAWineFest coming to Los Angeles this weekend!

LOS ANGELES -- LAWineFest returns to Los Angeles for

two epic days of fine wine, artisan beer, gourmet foods and fabulous fun!

LAWineFest will be held June 25 and 26, 2016 at 5901Sunset Blvd., in the

shadow of the historic KTLA white broadcast tower in Hollywood.

LA’s “Signature Celebration of all Things Wine” attracts more than 5,000

enthusiasts who come to taste world-renown wines and artisan beers from

across the globe. Participants will also be able to get close and personal with a

wide variety of reasonably-priced artisan boutiques, gourmet foods, wine-related

accessories and local lifestyle “must have” products.


Wine lovers will also have the rare opportunity to taste exclusive small-batch

pours from roughly a dozen hard-to-find boutique wineries at a small, additional

fee. Tickets are limited to a maximum of 400 people per day for this one-of-a-kind

tasting.


With a portion of the event’s proceeds, LAWineFest  supports Sunshine

Kids. A range of LA’s popular gourmet food trucks will be present, for attendees to

score some of the most delicious, affordable food in Los Angeles. The

LAWineFest Music Stage will feature entertaining live music. The King Barrel

courtyard gives a place for attendees to relax while enjoying the day.


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.


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. Exhibitor products will be

available for sale, as well as cuisine from some of the best food trucks in LA.

fun, exploration and education. 2016 sponsors thus far include Los Angeles
