At The Garagiste Festival you will discover wines and winemakers that are likely new to you. With their annual production under 1200 total cases, the majority of the participating wineries do not have tasting rooms and most are difficult to find in stores and restaurants.

Over 15 different grape varieties will be represented, not to mention all the various blends. The wines will be poured by the dedicated vintners themselves who are thrilled to share not only their wines, but their passion and story as well.

The Garagiste Festival: Southern Exposure is a weekend of events dedicated to showcasing the wines of over 50 high-quality, limited-production, commercial winemakers who are making under 1500 cases per year from the Central Coast.

Our mission is to support the small guys and girls who don’t have big marketing budgets or the time to get out there and sell their wine. These wines can be very hard to find – many of these winemakers don’t even have tasting rooms. Find the next great winemakers early and impress your friends!

Each day will feature one of our renowned entertaining and educational seminars in the morning followed by an afternoon of wine tasting in the Main Hall. Seats to the seminars are limited. VIP guests will have full access to each days events, including the seminar, lunch and early access to the Grand Tasting.

Limited tickets available. Get yours today before it’s too late!
