Garagiste Southern Exposure happening Feb. 8-9 

Paso garagiste festival

Garagiste co-founders Doug Minnick and Stewart McLennan.

–Mark your calendar now to attend The Garagiste Wine Festival-Southern Exposure, Feb. 8-9, in Solvang, the Danish capital of America.

Meet, greet and taste wines from small production, boutique winemakers, most of whom don’t have tasting rooms. Garagiste is the perfect venue to interact with the winemakers, while exploring the world of limited distribution, adventurous wines.

This year’s Southern Exposure features 41 winemakers, 17 from the Paso Robles/San Luis Obispo area, with 12 first time exhibitors. Many of these winemakers have production of only 50-400 cases a year, so don’t miss this opportunity to try these wines, many of whom only pour at the Garagiste!

Douglas Minnick, (co-founder of The Garagiste Festival, and pouring his own Garagiste brand, Hoi Polloi) is very enthusiastic about this year’s festival lineup, saying: “This will be our 22nd Garagiste Festival, and our 7th Southern Exposure. We are proud to have been recently voted Best Wine Festival in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Award of 2018. These winemakers are passionate, making some of the best, most interesting wines in the world. We love bringing these wines to serious wine lovers.”

Janis Denner of Pelletiere Estate Vineyard & Winery is thrilled to be among one of first time exhibiting vintners to introduce her brand, saying: “Specializing in Italian varietals, we are very excited to be pouring our ‘taste of Italy’ wines to such an enthusiastic group of wine centric people.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to taste and try some of the most exciting, small production wines from Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo County and the Central Coast!

The event will be held at the Veteran’s Memorial Hall, located at 1745 Mission Drive in Solvang, Calif. For tickets and an event schedule, click here.

The California Garagiste is a 501C3 non-profit organization benefitting the Cal-Poly Wine & Viticulture Program. Enjoy great, wines while helping to support the future of winemaking!
