The folks who put on the LA Wine Fest every year will be tuning up once again just a bit to the north. The Santa Clarita Wine Fest is scheduled to spill the wine at Bridgeport Marketplace on March 2, 2013, from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Bridgeport Marketplace is located at 24045 Newhall Ranch Road in Valencia, CA. This will be the third annual event for wine lovers in the 661.
The event promises to be enough of a pleasure with all the wine, beer and spirits poured, not to mention the food, cigars and other of life’s little delights. But a good cause will be served as well - the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for Children’s Cancer will benefit as a direct result of your attendance.
The participants list for the 2013 SCWF is Southern California-heavy, with only a handful of wineries from Paso Robles or Napa Valley. There’s a particularly strong showing from Ventura County and Malibu, though, so this will be a good chance to sample wines from those areas. They may be a little hard to find at the wine shop, but they’ll be at this party.
