VOTED #1 WINE FESTIVAL BY USA TODAY READER POLL!
The Garagiste Festival is the first and only wine festival dedicated to the undiscovered and under-recognized artisan ‘garagiste’ producers who are making some of the best, most exciting, handcrafted small lot production wines in the world. The Garagiste Festival was named one of the Top Nine Epicurean Vacations by ABC News. Founded by fellow garagistes Stewart McLennan and Douglas Minnick, the Garagiste Festival is committed to fostering the spirit of free exchange of ideas and encouragement that has made California one of the friendliest, most successful and innovative wine-making regions in the world. The festival is produced by Garagiste Events, a 501C3 non-profit organization dedicated to furthering the education of future winemakers and those training for employment within the wine industry.
