The 8th Annual LAWineFest was “an exploration of taste” in Los Angeles, CA

On June 8-9, 2013, Hollywood’s Historic Raleigh Studios hosted the LAWineFest. It showcased award-winning wines from 13 countries, craft brews, artisan cocktails, interactive cooking demos, wine tasting seminars, and GFT’s (Gourmet Food Trucks). There is no way to try everything, but here are highlights of our exploration of the festival. The VIPs received a schwag bag full of goodies – from dark chocolate bars to cookbooks. All attendees received a souvenir wine glass to use for the tastings.

The Venetian and Palazzo Hotels of Las Vegas were promoting their Carnevale which runs from May 27 through September 8. The hotels will come alive with the fantasy, food, fun, and romance of Italy during Carnevale, a three-month celebration of summer. Carnevale will feature 300 unique experiences through the summer and it’s the perfect place to unmask your inner foodie, artist, adventurer, or romantic. Visit their website for more information:

Mahalo and hope to see you next year at the LAWineFest!
