Hey, the Garagiste Wine Festival this Saturday at the Wiltern!

on 06/07/16 at 4:08 pm


2016LAArtSmallUrban Exposure…Bringing the California wine country to the City…

This event is dedicated to showcasing the wines of over 60 high-quality, limited-production, commercial winemakers who are making under 1500 cases per year from all over California. We are thrilled to be holding this year’s Festival in the historic, art deco Wiltern Theater in mid-city Los Angeles.

These small-lot wines can be very hard to find. Over 60% of these winemakers don’t have a tasting room, so this is a singular chance to discover the next great winemakers early…and impress your friends with your newfound knowledge! Come on down and meet these artisans in person and taste their passion. We know you’ll find plenty of new wines to love.


Have questions? We’ll answer them. Just contact us at info@garagistefestival.com.

Garagiste Events, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit whose proceeds go towards the education of future professionals within the wine industry.

GARAGISTES – (garage-east) n, Fr. – A term originally used in the Bordeaux region of France to denigrate renegade small-lot wine makers, sometimes working in their garage, who refused to follow the “rules.” Now a full-fledged movement responsible for making some of the best wine in the world. Who’s laughing now, Francois? Syn: Rule-breakers, pioneers, renegades, mavericks, driven by passion.

Welcome to Garagiste, a place for the underground, the different, and the cutting edge of small production winemaking with no rules.


For the THIRD TIME, Garagiste is coming to LA!

Saturday, JULY 9th – 2-6pm

Over 60 Wineries / 200+ different wines to taste / VIP Backstage Seminar / Rare & Reserve Hour

Meet the Winemakers, Come taste their passion!
