EVENT DESCRIPTION
______
 

The beautiful Leica Store and Gallery hosts wineLA’s newest venture, The ROCK Stars of Wine. Join us in not only celebrating the “STARS” and personalities of wine, but the “ROCK” (not the music, but the stone) and its impact on wine. WineLA is joining forces with Tasting Panel, Somm Journal, and Los Angeles Magazine to salute the 2017 Rock Stars of Wine on Wednesday, June 28th, 2017. With multiple, A-List wineries set to participate in the festivities, Leica Store and Gallery expects to welcome hundreds of wine enthusiasts to meet the hit makers and celebrate the superstars of the wine industry.    

This Rock Stars of Wine event will feature a “Legends of Rock” panel presentation at 1pm, where industry members will get a meet and greet with some of the exclusive wineries featured at this year’s event. The event will also feature a VIP Dinner with the Rock Stars at 6pm. The dinner will include a discussion, tasting, and a private session with dinner prepared by Chef Alex at Petrossian Beverly Hills.   Tickets to wineLA’s Rock Stars of Wine event, will also include an assortment of tray-passed hors d’oeuvres provided by Petrossian (that are sure to hit a high note), a complimentary rock star wine glass from Schott Zwisel, and a number of auction items to add to your repertoire. DJ John Wig is set to provide the rock music and the Rockin After Party will take place from 9-9:30 on the patio, at the venue.  

This star-studded event will begin at 7 p.m. for regular admission. Advanced tickets may be purchased now for $65 per person, $75 after May 1st, and $85 after June 1. Tickets will be $95 at the door.  VIP is limited to 24 guests for the 6pm dinner service and will include a VIP gift bag during departure. Advanced tickets for the VIP experience may be purchased for $195 per person or $250 at the door.  This event is limited to 200 guests and similar to wineLA’s past wine events, is expected to sell out so tickets at the door may not be available.  

Wine is sunshine held together by water…. but smells and feels like the ground it came from… the rock & stone.   Rock Stars of Wine is a celebration of the saying ‘in vino veritas” … the truth of the place always shines through… Come and taste over 80 wines with ROCK STAR winemakers, vineyard owners and executives.  Grab a glass of over 40 different grapes, styles, colors, rich and fruity to lean and mean - mineral inspired rock juice.

wineLA is about enhancing the wine culture of Los Angeles. To do so, wine must be in rhythm with fashion, music, food and other beverages. It must take advantage of the geography, the architecture and the centers of interest. Los Angeles is a giant playground with an amazing array of venues, spaces, wine bars, restaurants, beaches, roof tops, gardens, and magical views. We want to be a part of the LA lifestyle, the wine lifestyle, and celebrate the people, the place and the passion.

wineLA will promote significant events, occasional classes, and tastings of merit. This is phase two of what we started 20 years ago at LearnAboutWine.com - America’s first wine education website and first in wine event creation. LearnAboutWine will now evolve onto a digital platform; the transformation will take some time; so we will slowly rebrand our event efforts onto wineLA, reduce the number of activities we focus on, and elevate our efforts to focus on the next big thing… Doing what is best for the wine industry and the communities we serve. Edicts: innovate, evolve and excite.

We thank you for joining our newsletter, we will be sending fewer emails and packing them with amazing content. We want to be your wine content provider and would love to hear about your favorite places, your music, your locations - we want to be under the influence of what ignites your passion for Los Angeles.
