East LA Meets Napa celebrates the richness of Latin food and the success of Latino-owned vineyards in California by pairing gourmet cuisine with fine wines. This unique event honors the roots of our many vintners and families. Hosted in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, East LA Meets Napa is the perfect opportunity to relax with friends, family, co-workers and clients. The annual evening event regularly sells out with approximately 2,000 patrons in attendance. Guests enjoy live entertainment while rubbing shoulders with celebrity chefs. Over 80 top LA restaurants and premium vintners are on hand to offer tastings.

This year, AltaMed Food and Wine Festival’s East LA Meets Napa is proud to celebrate the rich history and flavors of Argentina!

Argentina is the largest wine producer in South America and the fifth largest in the world. It is best known for its versions of classic red wines including Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Argentine wines are considered New World wines but actually have a rich history dating back more than 400 years. Winemaking practices were spread throughout Argentina—as they would be in California—by Spanish missionaries planting grapes to ensure a supply of sacramental wines. Join us at East LA Meets Napa as we proudly celebrate the wine, cuisine and culture of Argentina!
