Press Release – China Silk Wines

LA Wine Fest, one of the most culturally rich events of the summer in Los Angeles, has been given the exclusive privilege of offering China Silk Wines as a featured wine during the event.

The wine, never before served in the United States, is unique to the Appellation region of Xinjiang and provides a rare taste that is has been called a “crossroads” between Eastern and Western cultures. The silk road in China, historically famous for its use as a trading point of exotic goods, passes through one of the best regions in the world for wine production. As such, China Silk Wines provide both connoisseurs and amateur tasters alike the opportunity to sample and savor a wine that is at once exotic, rich, and replete with tradition.

LA Wine Fest is honored to be the first and only location in the United States given license to serve China Silk Wines. To participate in the festival and get a taste of this rare and exclusive wine, visit the LA Wine Fest website at www.lawinefest.com. The two-day event will be held in Hollywood on July 12-13 at the historic Raleigh Studios and will include wine tastings, demonstrations, and an ultra-exclusive charity dinner. As of June, LA Wine Fest has sold more tickets than either of the two previous years, and it appears will likely sell out completely long before the weekend of the event.
