The OCWineFest returns for its second year of bringing people together with wine.
A year after it’s debut, the OCWineFest is back for round two of drinking what you like and liking what you drink. Once again the event will be produced by A Stone’s Throw Winery in coordination with Dr. Joel M. Fisher of the LAWineFest, with proceeds benefiting the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and Keep Kids Connected. On March 9 through 10, the historical Swanner House in San Juan Capistrano will become a festive space for exploration of wines and brews.
Backed by the Giracci Team, the fest is beautifully strung together with precision and expertise. Giracci Vineyards, owned by Chad and Linda Kearns, has won a number of awards including gold and double gold medals throughout the California circuit with A Stone’s Throw Winery. The duo’s shared love for vino led them to begin creating wine, first as a hobby that then grew into the business they have today. In 2005, the Kearns became proprietors of Giracci Vineyards with the intention of restoring it’s grounds. Their passionate dream is creating a lovely venue for years to come with the Swanner House Restoration Foundation (which a part of the events proceeds will also benefit). Together with Fisher, they bring you an accessible and casual space for a growth of knowledge in food and wine.
Orange County winemakers and exhibitors will be joining to make this weekend one to remember, focusing on bringing people together with wine. The unlimited tastings (courtesy of your souvenir glass) opens your palate to the discovery of over 100 wines and beers you may have been missing out on! Not only is the event perfect for a more advanced wine lover, it also opens the floor for novice enthusiasts with exclusive seminars. Whether you want to learn about making wine in your own kitchen, mingling in the Sauté Magazine luxe lounge, or busting a move on the dance floor, the OCWineFest offers a unique experience like no other.
This weekend of decadent food, live music, learning and tasting from the best only happens once a year so clear your schedule and come explore. When you use the promo code SAUTE you’ll even get 30 percent off any ticket (which is available right here) at checkout!
