What’s the big deal about small production wines? What difference does it make, and who really cares how much wine a winery makes?
Find out for yourself! Sample over 50 extremely hard-to-find, truly artisan wineries – most of whom do not have tasting rooms and are not on “wine country” maps – on June 21 and 22 in Glendale for its sixth season. This is your chance to meet and pick the minds of undiscovered/incomparable winemakers while they pour you their hand made, cutting edge wines themselves.
You won’t be able to find these unique *garagiste wines in supermarkets, large liquor chains, or big-name wineries! Grab your fellow wine connoisseurs and spend the afternoon browsing and comparing an incredibly wide range of varietals and styles. It’s no wonder why USA Today rated the Garagiste Wine Festival number one in the nation – there’s no other event like it!
Now you can taste an incredibly wide variety of wines and find new favorites without having to risk an entire bottle purchase on an unknown wine. Making your experience easier than ever, festival-goers can download an app that allows you to bookmark and map out the wineries you want to try beforehand as well as rate all of your favorites during the event! Android and iOS users can download the app for free.

*GARAGISTES – (garage-east) n, Fr. – A term originally used in the Bordeaux region of France to denigrate renegade small-lot wine makers, sometimes working in their garage, who refused to follow the “rules.” Now a full-fledged movement responsible for making some of the best wine in the world. Who’s laughing now, Francois? Syn: Rule-breakers, pioneers, renegades, mavericks, driven by passion.
