Don’t Miss The 2nd Annual OCWineFest

OCWineFest returns to San Juan Capistrano March 9 and 10, to sip for a cause, bringing top wineries into one location for two days of wine tasting and wine education on the historic grounds of A Stone’s Throw Winery, with many OC-based winemakers, luxe exhibitors and great philanthropic organizations in the mix. All tickets include unlimited tastings and a souvenir glass.

Wine Fest in Orange County

In its second year, OCWineFest, produced in coordination with LAWineFest owner and CEO, Dr. Joel M. Fisher, will be bigger and better, continuing to blaze the trail of bringing wine and people together – from the novice to the aficionado – in an accessible way, balancing fun, exploration and education with wine and beer tastings, food pairings, seminars, and a chance to meet some of the area’s top sommeliers and winemakers. The event will also feature gourmet goodies and luxury products from a variety of vendors.

Tasty eats will be available for purchase from Cousins Maine Lobster, MAIZ Cocina, Nostimo Greek Mediterranean Cuisine, Slammin’ Sliders and The Poke Hut Food Truck. There will be games by King Barrel and dancing to the tunes of the The Shenanigans Band and Hunting Waldo.

OC Wine Fest

The spirit of giving will continue through 2019 at OCWineFest, which will raise funds and awareness for three amazing philanthropic organizations – Kids Konnected, the Swanner House Restoration Foundation, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

This year OCWineFest will feature well over 100 wines and beers, highlighting especially the producers of California, and guests will be able to mingle, dance, nibble bites, and learn about award-winning wines and beers from certified sommeliers and the wine and beer makers themselves. What makes OCWineFest a truly unique and special event is its seminar component – guests can learn about different facets of wine in a totally relaxed way, from a food + wine pairing course with a sommelier and expert caterer, to how to start winemaking at home, to how a winery becomes a brand, there will be something interesting for everyone. Don’t forget to play Giant Jenga and Cornhole at the King Barrel lounge!
