Jump into the heart of Los Angeles, with a wine glass happily in hand.
Surround yourself with scores of wineries and, yes, breweries at this summer's LAWineFest. (We’re the WineFest, but beer tastings have reached an art form we celebrate too.) Stroll down the industrial-chic Market Row, part of the Downtown Arts District's ROW DTLA complex, sipping and exploring new tastes. The Fest is dedicated to making the world of wine unfussy and relatable. Whether you already know quite a bit or are just tiptoeing into the scene, the Fest is a great place to discover more with comfort and ease.
Once you check in, Festgoers freely stroll from booth to booth. Artisan boutiques and food stops are scattered among the wineries and breweries, featuring gourmet and lifestyle goodies to buy as you happily sip. At the winery and brewery tables, company representatives -- sometimes the winemakers themselves -- are eager to chat about what they're sampling.
The ROW DTLA has a designated Lyft/Uber drop-off spot. A large pay parking lot is on premise for Designated Drivers.
