The OCWineFest is produced by the same team that has produced the LAWineFest which just completed its 12th successful year. This popular event blazed a trail in L.A. to bring wine and people together in a casual setting intended to welcome all. Now a local institution, we’re known to reliably deliver a relaxed event that balances fun, exploration and education. Our goal is to help people explore their taste in a festive environment. Our unofficial motto: Drink what you like; Like what you drink!
This year we are honored to begin a new collaboration with A Stone's Throw Winery in presenting the OCWineFest in San Juan Capistrano. A Stone's Throw Winery was originally founded in 2002 out of Trabuco Canyon and operated as a small boutique winery called Hamilton Oaks Vineyard and Winery Inc. In 2012, the winery opened a second tasting room as Hamilton Oaks San Juan in the historic Swanner House in San Juan Capistrano, on the 3-acre property.
With dozens of wineries, craft breweries, lifestyle exhibitors, gourmet food trucks, live music and more, the OCWineFest will offer a unique day of exploration among the orange groves of A Stone's Throw Winery.
