After serving a sell-out crowd unlimited pours of wine and beer, last year, the 15th annual L.A. Wine Fest will once again return to Long Beach on June 6 and 7.

The massive event catering to everyone’s inner oenophile—one that provides unlimited pours upon entry of both beer and wine along with a special ticket that gives access to “boutique wineries”—attracted 5,000 attendees last year and is expected to draw the same types of numbers when it returns to the Pike Outlets in Downtown Long Beach.

This year’s list of wineries include:

Food Trucks


And a little bit more info on those food trucks: Cousins Maine Lobster is the truck offshoot of the restaurant just launched in Los Angeles. It offers everything from lobster tots to lobster tacos. Slammin’ Sliders has a seemingly endless list of sliders and The Berlin Truck is known for their takes on grilled cheeses and sausages like their curry chicken grilled cheese and mac’n’cheese dog. All three were at last year’s event and organizers say more might be on the slate as the event approaches.

Tickets to L.A. Wine Fest start at $50 for a general admission ticket, which includes entrance to the festival and a commemorative glass. Their all access entry ticket, for $75, includes early entrance into the festival, a commemorative glass and wine tastings from over a dozen gem Boutique Wineries, which are defined as producing less than 2,500 cases of wine each year. This sale ends Jan. 29.
