Big news for southern California wine consumers! The first annual Valley Wine Festival is coming to the Van Nuys Barcelona Gallery on Saturday, November 11. Dubbed “Vegas in the Valley”, this evening of food and wine will feature Vegas-style casino gambling to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation.
For the bargain pre-event and online price of only $25, wine consumers can taste over 50 great wines and munch on tasty tidbits from some of the Valley’s best restaurants and caterers.
WineConsumer had a chance to chat with event founder and host Alan Barcelona about Vegas in the Valley. Barcelona owns his own advertising and marketing firm in the Valley and was a food and beverage manager for nine years. He has almost a decade of hosting events from street fairs and festivals to big charity bashes. Best of all, Alan is a wine lover.
What is the purpose of the Festival?
The purpose of the festival is to introduce Los Angeles area residents to Barcelona’s wonderful gallery, museum, and event space.
How was the idea for the Valley Wine Festival born?
There has never been an event that focused on the Valley itself. I thought the Valley Wine Festival would be a way to shine the spotlight on Barcelona Gallery as a cultural destination.
Why did you choose this venue for the festival?
The gallery is an amazing location in a commercial area of the city. Once visitors step inside, they are surrounded by marble floors and walls that sweep them away from the hustle and bustle of Van Nuys airport (right next door). The space is nothing sort of magnificent.
What will wine consumers get at the festival?
They will be able to try some of the more rare wines from around the globe and enjoy some great food. Folks will have the opportunity to get their Holiday wine shopping done early at amazing prices from one of our sponsors, Cap N’ Cork in Hollywood.
There you have it southern Californians. The Valley Wine Festival is a great opportunity to taste some great wine, munch of tasty food, and indulge your Vegas style gaming fantasy – and all for a good cause.
WineConsumer Magazine will be at the Valley Wine Festival and
a follow up story covering this first annual event will follow.
