Southern California Grand Festival
Our Southern California event is what you’d expect in LaLa Land: the real deal – only prettier and more laid back. Pinot producers from Oregon, Northern and Southern California, and a few from abroad gather to pour and tell their stories. From little tastings and pairings around the city to tasting “talks” with our most colorful winemakers to our spectacular annual Grand Festival in the absolutely lovely Skirball Cultural Center, Pinot fans will have access to Pinots from everywhere and the warm and wonderful artisans who create them.
Saturday’s Grand Tasting will showcase over 70 phenomenal producers of Pinot Noir. Consumers will be able to sample up to 150 Pinots from every important Pinot Noir region, from Santa Rita Hills in Oregon to Anderson Valley to New Zealand. Come to taste these highly acclaimed wines, meet the gifted and charming winemakers who create them, and experience the passion and romance that the Pinot Noir industry continues to embody. Discover and celebrate Pinot Noir in its many diverse styles, ranging from modern to earthy to elegant. Explore new producers, find wines you love, and become a Pinot devotee if you are not one already. We call it Serious Fun. Come see for yourself.
