On February 26, 2012, the Beverly Hills Wine Festival is bringing the best wines from around the world to one location for Southern California’s tasting pleasure!
Presented by ABM Medical, Aston Martin, and Lamborghini of Beverly Hills, more than 100 wineries, breweries and spirits are participating to showcase their select varieties at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. The hotel is fresh on our minds since the recent death of Whitney Houston on the eve of pre-Grammy parties last Saturday.
No doubt, the location will add an unusual element to the event. Plans had been in place to include a tribute to the singer as part of the wine festival event, but that has since been cancelled. Here’s hoping this happy event will bring some new memories to celebrate at the Beverly Hilton and that speculation and sadness will instead be poured (literally) into the celebration of life and wine. We can’t avoid the fact that many attendees will think of the most recent news to come from the hotel, but we hope that guests will honor what happened by sharing in the simple joy of tasting fine wines among friends.
That being said, the festival itself will be a wine lover’s dream come true, with wines hand-picked from around the world to present guests with the best of varietals and variety! They will also be featuring exquisite pairings with international cheeses. This will not be your typical tasting event, with the high-end and exclusive vints being served, such as:
- The #1 Champagne in the world, Armand de Brignac “Ace of Spades”
- The #1 Pinot Noir in the world from Pacific Coast Vineyards
- Wines from Napa & Sonoma rated at 90 & 92 points
The wine festival will also include live music, entertainment, beer and spirits! Net proceeds from the festival benefit the LA Animal Alliance. To purchase tickets, visit www.beverlyhillswinefestival.com.
