The AltaMed Food and Wine Festival is three-day event that celebrates the richness of Latin food and the success of Latino-owned vineyards in California and Mexico by pairing gourmet cuisine with fine wines!

The festival kicks off on Thursday, July 26 with the Grand Tasting, an exclusive formal food and wine pairing at Commerce Casino’s Crowne Plaza Ballroom. This event features a five-course tasting hosted by celebrity chefs and winemakers. On the menu are reserve wines from famed regions of Napa Valley and Mexico, paired with epicurean delights from famous LA and OC establishments.

On Friday, July 27, East LA Meets Napa takes us on a journey to the vineyards of the famed Napa Valley, where the quality of the wine reflects the deep roots of so many family vintners. Over 80 top LA restaurants and premium Napa wine-producers are on hand to offer samples while patrons enjoy live music throughout the evening.


AltaMed’s three-day festival concludes on Saturday, July 28 with OC Meets Napa, an intimate food and wine experience at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano.
