The 26th annual Family Winemakers Tasting showcases California's family-owned wineries commitment to bringing great wine from their table to yours. For the wine trade and consumers, this tasting is an exploration of wine's place in the farm-to-table movement. Each wine present has its own story. Your ticket includes: Unlimited access to 150+ wineries from 20+ California appellations pouring over 35 varietals and 500+ different wines; commemorative wine glass; a great variety of cheeses and crackers; on site food vendor. Wine orders may be placed at this tasting, to be shipped from the winery. Many wineries will be offering special pricing on shipping and/or select wines. There will also be "Taste and Take" availability for consumers to purchase their favorites at the event to take home with them. Meet the passion-driven vintners and winery owners behind the labels themselves, while tasting from upwards of 750 wines. From exceptional, small production labels to the hard-to-find collectibles, attendees will explore the ever-increasing range of wine varietals and blends that today’s California wineries are producing and discover new favorites to add to their collection. This large tasting will showcase small, family-owned California wineries, many of which pour at very few events throughout the year.

New discoveries and old favorites - varietals you know and love, varietals you've never heard of - wineries from Mendocino to Temecula and every place in between. Taste California! There will be far too many wineries at each tasting for you to visit them all, so plan your time. Use the list of participating wineries, the links to their web sites, and our Varietal Map to map out your tasting strategy.


Please be sure to always drink responsibly, in moderation, and never drink and drive.
