VINO CALIFORNIA gathers Italian wine producers, importers, distributors, press, and consumers fostering invaluable business opportunities.
The premier event of Vino California, the Grand Tasting is the ultimate celebration of Italian wine.

There are more than 3,000 wine grape varietals that grow in Italy, and this event educates attendees about the style of these unique wines and the terroir that produces them. The daytime trade-only portion of the Grand Tasting provides the opportunity for the wineries to meet importers, buyers, retailers, press and consumers throughout Los Angeles and Southern California, one of the largest wine markets in the United States.
In addition to these spectacular wines, attendees have the opportunity to taste a variety of Italian culinary products. For further information on Vino California please visit the event’s website: www.vino-california.com
