 Family Winemakers upcoming Pasadena Event!
WineMatch is excited to once again be exhibiting at one of the best wine events in Southern California. If you like wine and live in California, you need to go to Pasadena on Sunday, March 9th from 3:30p.m. to 6p.m. for the Family Winemakers event. Having been to this event four times, this is one of WineMatch's favorite wine tasting events as so many of our customers are showing off their wines. This year WineMatch will debut it's "Taste Challenge" where consumers can test a few wines and see if they can pick out certain elements.

We have noticed over the years that there are thousands of bottles of wine that never show up at your local retailer, but they are absolutely fabulous. A lot of the small family-run wineries do not have the distribution channels set up to be at Trader Joes or Costco, but they have fantastic wine. WineMatch and Family Winemakers help bridge this gap so consumers can deal directly with the wineries.

Since its founding in the year 1991, Family Winemakers of California has presented an Annual Tasting. Originally, the Tasting was developed as a trade-only type event; an opportunity for member-wineries and California's wine trade to gather together and talk about the issues foremost in the minds of industry members while tasting great wine. Now that it is open to consumers, expect to be surprised by the great wines here.

As Family Winemakers represents the smaller wineries, the tasting is a unique opportunity to showcase the winemaking craftsmanship of vintners from across the state.
Family Winemakers now combines the consumer event and winery event. The one day event on Sunday, March 9th now includes consumers from 3:30p.m. to 6p.m., although wine trade outfits gain early admission and can take advantage of this day to visit more wineries and collaborate with the many vendors of the trade.
