LA Wine Fest 2009

The LA Wine Fest is taking place June 6-7 this weekend, and I'm really looking forward to heading to Raleigh Studios to see what it's all about.

All the information is in my piece, but just for a recap, the event goes both days all afternoon, there are a bunch of special talks and seminars, including one by Georg Riedel, the owner of the famous crystal stemware company.

Besides wine, there will also be beer and sake tastings, and even some bourbon, so there is something for everyone. Everyone, that is, who can pay $55 a ticket. If you're serious into trying wines and possibly buying a few bottles at a discount, though, you more than make your money back. I'll report more after the event, but for now, take a look at my preview
