LA WineFest: Because Napa doesn't have food trucks


Even though I’ve lived in Southern California my entire life and was raised to always drain my glass first and dinner plate second, I’ve yet to have a Napa Valley adventure. My parents keep insisting that we’ll take a family trip there “some day,” and I’ve had many a conversation with my gal pals about a girl’s weekend up north (complete with spas and limos), but sadly none of those plans have ever made it past the fantastical idea stage.

With the summer meandering over with nary a trip itinerary in sight, however, I must resign myself to yet another Napaless year. Fortunately, I don’t need to cry myself a Merlot river. On Saturday, June 5th, I’ll be swirling and tasting and marinating my tongue with wine from 130 different wineries at the LA WineFest at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. The two-day festival (tickets can also be purchased for Sunday, June 6th or for both days) will also feature various spirits, as well as tasty offerings from the Border Grill Truck, the Sweets Truck and the Must Bar.

Even Napa doesn’t have food trucks.

A full list of participants can be found here.

Tickets can be purchased at http://www.lawinefest.com/ for $65 a day or $100 for a 2-day pass. Use Promo Code, Diana, to get $15 off a single day ticket.

Yet another reason for me to curse grad school. Weekend before finals. BLAST!

We're opposites -- I grew up in Napa and went to college in LA, and now that I'm back North I crave LA all year long. . .and never get there.

To make Napa even more enticing: there are food trucks -- well, taco trucks. Really good taco trucks
