We are excited to announce that we will be holding our 10th Garagiste Southern Exposure Festival the weekend of February 9th & 10th. This will be another great opportunity to introduce your wines to a wider audience, as well as local Trade & Media.


All events to take place at the Solvang Veterans Memorial Hall.

Friday, February 9th - Rare & Reserve Kick-Off Party
- From 6:30-9pm - Participation fee - $35

Saturday Festival winery participants will have the opportunity to pour a few unique bottles. Your choice - could be a rare and reserve, barrel samples, verticals, club only, whatever you want that is NOT being poured on Saturday. This is a fun and casual event that gets you more face time with hard-core attendees who are looking to meet you. (You must also be pouring Saturday to participate in this event.)

Saturday, February 10th - The GRAND TASTING  
Tasting From 12:30-5pm - Participation fee: $350 - You already know how this works. You pour, the people taste. A fun time is had by all. 30 Spaces Available.

Sunday, February 11th - The GARAGISTE PASSPORT Day - No Additional Fee
Wineries who pour on Saturday will also have the opportunity to participate in a Sunday "Passport" day. We will let Garagiste consumers know which wineries are open and offering an incentive for Garagiste attendees to stop in (or make an appointment). You are free to offer whatever deal works best for you - could be a free tasting, discount on sales, a winery/vineyard tour, barrel tasting, etc. - that can be redeemed by showing the Official Garagiste Program.

This would also be a great day to schedule your pick-up parties so as not to conflict with the main Festival day.


A Certificate of Insurance is required to pour in this event. If you cannot provide one, you will not be able to participate at this time.

General Terms
The Festival will be providing pre-event promotion, table space, glassware & water, ice (if needed), signage and lunches (on Saturday) for all winery participants.
