The Garagiste Festival is coming back to Southern California for the 5th Annual Garagiste Festival: Urban Exposure on July 21st at the Santa Monica Bay Womens Club.
The rare wines being poured at this event are extremely hard to find. Most of the wineries participating do not have a tasting room, so this is a one-of-a-kind-opportunity for you to get ahead of the curve and discover these cutting-edge wines and winemakers all under one roof. And it is the winemakers themselves who pour at The Garagiste Festival - meet them personally and get their stories while you taste their wines.
There will be over 60 wineries from both Northern California and the Central Coast, most of whom will likely be new to you. This is a unique opportunity to taste the cutting-edge of the exploding California garagiste micro-winery movement and see why it is one of the most talked about events in the wine world.

Urban Exposure offers over 200 unique handcrafted wines made from over 20 different grape varieties from all over California. Over 60% of the winery participants do not have tasting rooms (or are widely available in the marketplace), so this will be the first time many of these wines will be available to the public.
