Last weekend the LA Winefest rolled into town with a carnival of vintners, liquor, and lots of bright shiny things. The popular event, held at Raleigh Studios drew a huge crowd. We often had to peek over shoulders and elbow our way up to the tables. In spite of the bacchanalian drinking, many of the things that caught our eye and our palate were low-octane drinks, nibbles and interesting contraptions.

We especially dug the SanTasti, Dry Soda, Vignette Wine Country Soda, Mutineer Magazine, The Tasting Panel magazine, and Weavers Coffee. Other interesting-looking displays were from the Hotel Cheval, super-intense Garlic Expressions and Olio and Olive.

Stay tuned for upcoming photos and wine recommendations from the LA Winefest. Greg Thompson contributed to this post.
