Wine lovers you are in for a treat!! The 2018 OCWineFest, is coming to San Juan Capistrano March 10 and 11 on the historical grounds of A Stones Throw Winery in San Juan Capistrano. Guests at OCWineFest will learn about and sip award-winning wines from around the globe – including from producers hailing from Israel, Croatia (hello, aged at the bottom of the Adriatic Sea!), Greece, France, as well as those you might be surprised to learn were grown and made right in Orange County and Los Angeles.
Don’t fret beer lovers – the team has specially curated some tasty craft breweries into the mix, honoring the craft beer phenomenon of Southern California. OCWineFest blazes the trail to bring wine and people together – from the newbie to the aficionado – in a way that balances fun, exploration and education. For those who would really like to expand their wine chops, there will be classes led by winemakers, wine experts and authors, over the course of the two-day event. This year, the OCWineFest team is proud to partner with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, to help raise awareness and funds in the continued search for a cure. There will be a number of luxury vendors and food trucks on-site (including Bear Flag, yum) as well.
