** POSTPONED Until April 20, 2013, due to inclement weather **

 

“As pleased as we are with the over 500 in attendance, and the momentum surrounding our event, we must put our guests’ safety first. Regrettably, we have decided to postpone our festival to Saturday, April 20th, 2013.  The ground is deeply saturated from the recent storm, which is predicted to continue for the next couple of days including the day of the event.  These conditions pose too great a risk for our guests and make the much anticipated Vineyard Hike next to impossible,” declared Robert Reyes, winemaker and organizer of this year’s inaugural event.  “We want to make sure that everyone has the greatest time possible, we want to give them an enjoyable and memorable experience.  We will look forward to seeing everyone in April.  I am certain we will have some very special additions to announce in our exciting lineup of activities.”

 

 

The first-ever Sierra Pelona Valley Wine Festival is slated for Saturday, Jan. 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Reyes Winery just 45 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.  The festival will celebrate the recently established AVA, The Sierra Pelona Valley Appellation. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.  The Sierra Pelona Valley appellation is Los Angeles’ County most recently established and fastest growing wine country destination.

“I would love to see at least 20 vineyards along Sierra Highway for a new wine trail in the next 5 years,” Barry Goldfarb says optimistically, owner of Agua Dulce Winery and Oreana Winery.

Today, festival organizers announced a partial list of wineries that will be joining Reyes Winery to pour at the event.  Among them are:  Agua Dulce Winery, Alonso Family Vineyards, Antelope Valley Winery, Bouquet Vineyard, Caruce Vineyards, Chavez Vineyards, Copper Hill Brewery, Donna Harris Wine Biz, Steve Hemmert Vineyards, High Desert Cellars, Naked Rebel Winery, Oreana Winery, Pulchela Winery, and Winehouse Vineyards.

Guests will be treated to gourmet food pairings from highly acclaimed Los Angeles area chefs and artisanal food makers such as Le Chene French Cuisine, Cheers At All Corked Up, The Whole Wheatery, Natcheryl Organic Cafe, Roman Holiday, Truffles n Toffee, Naked Juice, California Bakery, and Lindquist Chocolates. There will also be music; an open-air bazaar with area artists; a gift boutique; and an expansive silent auction.  Silent Auction items will include Wine and Dine gift certificates; and a variety of other wines, gift packages, and certificates from other sponsors. The event sponsors include Galpin Motors, Union Bank of California, Southern California Edison, Golf Cars LA, Robinson Ranch, All American Container, Power Media Group, Adam and Al Gottfried of Tee It Up Radio Network INC, Santa Clarita Valley TV, The Whole Wheatery, Country Journal, Mail America, Bennett’s Honey,  Steve’s Valencia Florist, Agua Dulce Hardware and Antelope Valley Winery.

Exclusive V.I.P. Access Event Passes will include early entrance at 11 a.m., private winery tour with barrel tastings, V.I.P. lounge reserve wine tasting paired with gourmet lunch; plus all general admission ticket benefits.
