This year’s STARS of Cabernet
The event is two days – November 14th at The Peninsula Beverly Hills and November 15th in Orange County. Both will start the day with a trade event and then go into a public tasting in the evening.
We estimate 150-200 trade and public attending each portion. We are lining up some of the most compelling wines of California, including ACKER FAMILY VINEYARDS, DOMINARI, MONTAGNA and SODARO. Additionally, we have a charitable partner involved – the TJ Martell Foundation, which funds Childrens Cancer Research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles(www.tjmartellfoundation.org).
