Santa Clarita WineFest Pours Crowd for Good Cause

Wineries from as far away as France, Italy and Israel and as close as the valley of Santa Clarita itself had a presence by pouring their best wines for this high-tiered crowd. Local winemaker Robert Reyes extended a visit to his winery with each pour. Others encouraged people to find their websites and social media. The world's most expensive coffee ValBeMar took pictures of their guests guests tasting the coffee and tweeted out the pictures.
Dr. Joel M. Fisher, the CEO of Winefest, happily reports "Today was great. Beautiful weather, big crowds. People tasted a variety of wines, learned not only about wine, but cheese pairings and scotch, and many have told me they will be visiting again with their favorite wineries. A very big success, and of course for a good cause."
Local charity The Michael Hoefflin Foundation will receive a generous portion of the sales not only from the event, but also the VIP party.
During the VIP party, over a hundred friends, fans and community leaders crowded into the exclusive tent to cheers the great day. Members of the Hoefflin Foundation expressed gratitude for the event and excitement over the turn-out.
The 2nd Annual Santa Clarita WineFest is sponsored by A1 Event Rentals, Bridgeport Marketplace, West Central Produce, Five Star Gourmet, 100.3 The Sound, The Magazine of Santa Clarita, Wine & Spirits Magazine, Icelandic Glacial H2O, Courtyard by Marriott.
