Del Mar Fairgrounds: Press Releases





San Diego County Vintner’s Association Wine Tastings are now at the Flower and Garden Show

Released: June 09, 2016

DEL MAR, CA (June 8, 2016).- Wine lovers can taste local wines and learn about winemaking from local vintners during the San Diego County Vintner’s Association wine tasting series in the Paul Ecke, Jr. Garden Show, presented by Think Blue.

This event, which had been held at the San Diego County Fair for nearly 20 years in the San Diego Pavilion, has been moved to the more intimate setting within the Garden Show at the Wine Bar. Sam Bass from 96.5 KyXy radio will host the event, introducing a different San Diego County Vintner at 4 and 5 p.m. daily on the Flower Show stage, except June 11 and 26 (due to other events).

The wine is free, however, guests 21 and older must pay $5 to reserve a spot for the tasting which includes a souvenir wine glass. Some of the proceeds are donated to the SDCVA to help promote local wineries. In addition, fairgoers can purchase a full glass of the wines they taste that day in the nearby Wine Garden Bar. Get your ticket early as these wine tastings will be limited to 50 people per tasting on weekdays and 75 per tasting on the weekends.
