First Ever Wine Festival at LA's Union Station
This January, Angelenos get to enjoy two of our favorite things at the same time: our best local wines, and classic Los Angeles architecture. The inaugural LA Uncorked Wine Festival is coming to Union Station on January 23rd, offering over wine tasting from over 60 local and international wineries plus food trucks and live music, and of course the beautiful historic architecture of the venue to enjoy. The event starts a 6 pm, with the last pour a 9 pm. While sipping your quality wine, wander around and take in the exquisite architecture and design, which combines Art Deco, Mission Revival, and Streamline Moderne style, with architectural details such as eight-pointed stars, and even elements of Dutch Colonial Revival architecture. The grand ticket concourse has 62-foot (19 m) high wood ceilings, and there are two enclosed garden patios on either side of the waiting room, where passengers exiting the trains were originally directed through the southern garden. Imagine this gracious garden setting as your first impression of Los Angeles! As of this writing, event organizers confirm they have booked Babcock and Gainey from Santa Ynez as well as Cakebread, St. Supery and Sonoma-Cutrer from Napa Valley, with more to be announced soon. The price is $55 for GA tickets and $65 for VIP tickets. Both packages include wine tastings with food sold separately. Tickets may be purchased at Eventbrite. The VIP ticket gets you in one hour earlier, at 5:00pm.. Union Station is located 800 N Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90012. For more information visit the official website of Uncorked Wine Festivals.
