Unlimited wine pours from over 20 wineries as LA Wine Fest returns to Long Beach

Share

The 19th 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 1 and 2 with unlimited pours for all wine lovers alike.

What is the LA Wine Fest?

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 are excited to be returning to the beautiful Harry Bridges park by the LA Harbor, and can’t wait to introduce Festgoers to this year’s list of established wineries, alongside newer producers pouring their incredible varietals in the general area and the VIP Garden. We’re also including several breweries, ciders and a few surprises, just adding to the overall experience for our guests,” said LAWineFest director and CEO Scherr Lillico in a press release.

Wait—there’s seriously unlimited pours at LA Wine Fest?

Yes—though what vendors you can and cannot visit depends on what ticket you score.

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 $150 and provide everything the general admission ticket provides plus access to what the festival dubs “boutique winery garden” hosted by Hotel Maya and Jackson Family Wines; Fuego, the restaurant attached to Hotel Maya, will also be offering bites. These boutique offerings are designated in the list below with an asterisk.

Designated drivers can purchase $20 tickets that allow access to the event without the alcohol tastings.
