LA Wine Fest returns to Long Beach with unlimited tastings from nearly 40 wineries, breweries


The 18th annual LA Wine Fest—which moved from Los Angeles to Long Beach in 2019—will once again take over the Harry Bridges Memorial Park space near the Queen Mary come June 3 and 4.

Catering to those with a deeply attached inner-oenophile, the event—which draws some 5,000 people each year—provides unlimited pours upon entry of both beer and wine. Yes, unlimited pours so make sure to drink water.

“We can’t wait to introduce festival-goers to some of the established and newer wineries pouring their incredible varietals, alongside several breweries, ciders and much more, while supporting a great cause in the Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club,” LA Wine Fest Director and CEO Scherr Lillico said in a press release. “2023 is setting up to be our biggest and best festival yet.”

General admission will be $100 and includes glass stemware to keep and use throughout the festival with unlimited wine, beer, water, and coffee tastings.

VIP tickets are $140 and provide everything the general admission ticket provides plus access to what the festival dubs “boutique wineries,” which are denoted by having an asterisk next to their name in the list below. Designated drivers can purchase $20 tickets that allow access to the event without the alcohol tastings.
