What do you get when you combine the tradition, history, and beauty of Los Angeles’ Union Station with delicious wine? You get the first-ever Los Angeles Uncorked Wine Festival on Saturday, January 23rd!
The event, which is being presented to the public via a company called Uncorked Wine Festivals, will begin on the dot at 5:00 pm (for VIPs). In more ways than one, the inaugural gala is set to tickle the senses in ways your eyes and sense of taste have never been soothed, sated and, ultimately, delighted.
Keeping in mind that anyone attending should exercise good judgment about drinking, attendees who pay $65 for VIP admission will have four hours, between 5:00 and 9:00 pm, to taste test as much wine to their heart’s content. And those who pay the $55 cost for general admission will have three hours, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, to smell and savor the finest in fermented grapes. It’s not just about quality, though there will be much of that, as there is the added bonus of quantity with over 62 wineries confirmed to be on the Union Station premises that day.
In conjunction with the wineries, jammin’ music and food trucks will also be out in full force, but it is worth knowing that the cost of grub will not be inclusive of general or VIP admission. Of the trucks present will be the famous Kashkash BBQ, one of the very rare places in Southern California to indulge in authentic, Lebanese barbecue. Some of the other food trucks scheduled to appear will be Slammin’ Sliders, Rice Balls of Fire, Border Grill, Mandoline Grill,, Rollin’ Lobster, and The Grilled Cheese Truck.
Besides taking part in a never-been-done-before experience that melds the transportational and architectural staple of Los Angeles (Union Station) with the tasteful culture of wine-tasting, there’s another incentive to attend the event. A portion of the proceeds will go to MOSTE, a non-profit organization that provides girls from under-served communities the skills to make the most of their educational journeys and careers through college.
You might want to get your tickets as soon as possible, too, because there are only 2,700 tickets to be sold in total and, of that number, most are already gone, according to the company putting on the festival.
