The Santa Monica Wine Fest is a two-day celebration of wine in Santa Monica, California. From crisp, refreshing whites to deep-flavored reds, whatever your preferred grape, you'll find plenty to discover and love at the Santa Monica Wine Fest. Fittingly held in an airplane hangar, we're bringing you a diverse group of wine from around the world under one roof. While you sample and learn about wine, you can enjoy music and purchase food from local food trucks.
We believe that wine is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Wine is a lifestyle -- It’s really all about how wine can make you feel and the people you’ll meet and share it with. Our team wants to make the experience of exploring wine effortless, fun, and non-intimidating.
Proceeds from the Santa Monica Wine Fest benefit the Surfrider Foundation, a foundation dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
