Are you going to the 26th American Wine & Food Festival? The Mutineer is! Yes, the Mutineer will be at the festival sipping wine and breaking hearts this upcoming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
What is the 26th American Wine & Food Festival? It is a wild and crazy gastronomical wine-fueled orgy held right here in Los Angeles. I spoke with someone at the Festival today and learned that tickets to Saturday’s event have been sold out, so if you don’t have your ticket yet, you are among the unlucky.
Tickets to Friday night’s event, “Red Hot @ Red Seven” are still available, featuring some killer restaurants including Wolfgang Puck’s own, “Cut”. Friday’s events are also modestly priced at $150, compared to $300 for Saturday or $750 for Sunday, so if this is your first American Wine and Food Festival, Friday’s festivities are a great place to start.
There is a great lineup of wineries at this year’s Festival. Some of the highlights for me will be Au Bon Climat, Bonaccorsi, Dr. Loosen, Hanzell, Justin, and Melville, with many more killer wineries on site pouring their juice.
Festival’s like this are a great way to try a wide range of wines for a relatively low price as well as meet people who share your interest in great wine. Plus, the festival benefits “Meals on Wheels”, so at the end of the day, it is for a good cause. Hope to see you there!
