Tickets on sale for wine tasting event at Del Mar Fairgrounds

The Family Winemakers of California, an association of family-owned wineries in California, launched ticket sales recently for its annual tasting in Southern California. Taking place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds’ Exhibit Hall on Saturday, March 9 and Sunday, March 10, the two-day tasting features 150 of California’s small, family-owned wineries showcasing over 750 wines, said Paul Kronenberg, president of the Family Winemakers of California.

“As the region’s largest tasting of California wines, this is an important tasting event for Southern California,” added Kronenberg. “The Family Winemakers Tasting introduces attendees to California’s small, family-owned wineries, the varietals being produced by California wine growers, and the state’s many rich and diverse wine regions. With such a vast selection of wines, I am positive that each person who attendees will discover a new favorite.”

Wines from Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Paso Robles, Santa Rita Hills, and many other California wine regions will be represented at this year’s tasting. Local wineries in the San Diego/Temecula area will also be present, including Wiens Family Cellars, Baily Vineyard & Winery, Falkner Winery, and Gershon Bachus Vintners, to name a few.

Once only open to members of the trade, the tasting has since opened to members of the general public. The consumer tasting takes place on Saturday, March 9, from 3-6 p.m. Additionally, a limited number of tickets are available for early admission during the trade segment on Saturday from 1-6 p.m. or during the trade-only tasting on Sunday from 1-5 p.m. This year’s tasting also offers a new Reserve Area only open to consumers.

For an additional fee, fine wine lovers can purchase the “Reserve Area Access” ticket, where wineries will be pouring wines that retail at $75 or more.
