Spring is here! Well, after the snow storms on the East Coast and rain storms on the West Coast, hopefully it is time for the flowers to bloom and the sun to shine! The first quarter of 2018 has flown by with restaurant openings, winemaker meetings, winery region visits, wine events and multiple airplane rides! Now, with Spring comes longer days and lots of great happenings!

Upcoming Events

Pebble Beach Food & Wine (April 5-8)
Pebble Beach Food & Wine is the premier epicurean lifestyle event on the West Coast, matching 250 acclaimed wineries and 100 celebrity chefs to create a hedonistic four-day destination on one of the most picturesque strips of coastline in the world. Throughout the weekend you’ll enjoy intimate access to the pinnacle of culinary and wine talent at wine tastings, cooking demos, and some of the most exclusive, unique dining opportunities available in the world.

Oregon Wine Trail Los Angeles (April 24)
We’re hitting the trail with 50 Oregon wineries and our friends at Olympia Provisions, Salt & Straw Ice Cream and Stumptown Coffee Roasters for a grand happening of Oregonian wine, food and personality. No white table cloths, no orange cheese cubes. Instead, a generous pour of Oregon’s fine wines and pioneering spirit.

Vintage Hollywood (June 9)
Vintage Hollywood is an intimate outdoor event attended that showcases an exclusive group of wineries and features food from some of the area’s top restaurants. The beneficiary for the 2018 Vintage Hollywood event is one of Los Angeles County’s largest social services agencies, The People Concern, which was formed in 2016 in a merger of two trusted social service organizations based in Los Angeles – OPCC and Lamp Community. Informed by more than fifty years of work in the community, The People Concern empowers the most vulnerable among us to rebuild their lives.
