This weekend is the 31st Annual Los Altos Art and Wine Festival. If you’ve never been to this event, it is one of the largest and best run in Northern California. The event hours are from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on both days.
The 2010 Los Altos Art and Wine Festival includes the work of hundreds of artists , three stages of music, street performers, a KIDZONE with TV entertainers and storybook characters, foods from around the world, great beer and wines from several Santa Cruz Mountain wineries. Attendance is expected to surpass 100,000 people for the weekend.
This year I am pouring wine for Kings Mountain Vineyards from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm on Saturday. The booth is located at the corner of Main and Third. Click 2010 Los Altos Art and Wine festival map to find the Kings Mountain Vineyards location.
Naumann Vineyards (State and Second), Roudon-Smith Winery (Main and Second), Page Mill Winery (Main and Second), Thomas Fogarty Winery (Main and Third) and Fernwood Cellars (State and Fourth) will also have representatives pouring wines this weekend.
You must have a wrist band to partake in any of the refreshing adult beverages. No wristband, no beer or wine. When you purchase a wristband, you receive a commemorative wine glass or beer mug. Once you have the glass (wristband) you can visit any of the wine or beer booths and purchase a “pour” of your favorite beverage. The cost of each “pour” ranges from approximately $4.00 – $7.00.
Note: If you don’t have a wristband, you won’t be served. In prior years, patrons would bring old art and wine glasses in an attempt to buy a drink without paying for the glass (wristband). Patrons can bring old glasses, but unless they have purchased a wristband, they won’t be served.
Lastly, I can get pretty hot at the festival, so please leave your pets at home.
To all my past and current clients, please stop by the Kings Mountain Vineyards booth (Saturday between 3:00 – 6:00) and say hi. I’d love to see you and buy you a glass of wine to thank you for your continued support.
