Postponement Date: April 20, 2013
Last night, the Sierra Pelona Valley Vintners Association announced the postponement of their 1st Annual Sierra Pelona Valley Wine Festival and Early Morning Vineyard Hike benefitting the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital that will now be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013.
“As pleased as we are with the over 500 in attendance, and the momentum surrounding our event, we must put our guests’ safety first. Regrettably, we have decided to postpone our festival to Saturday, April 20th, 2013. The ground is deeply saturated from the recent storm, which is predicted to continue for the next couple of days including the day of the event. These conditions pose too great a risk for our guests and make the much anticipated Vineyard Hike next to impossible,” declared Robert Reyes, winemaker and organizer of this year’s inaugural event. “We want to make sure that everyone has the greatest time possible, we want to give them an enjoyable and memorable experience. We will look forward to seeing everyone in April. I am certain we will have some very special additions to announce in our exciting lineup of activities.”
The Festival will honor all tickets and exhibition fees collected for the event from exhibitors and guests. Those wishing to retain their tickets for admission into the April 20, 2013 event can do so, and all requests for refunds will be honored.
Always thought the wine country was too far to enjoy for the day, then don’t miss the first annual “Sierra Pelona Valley Wine Festival” this weekend.
The wine festival will take place Saturday January 26, 2013 from 12 noon to 4p.m. at Reyes Winery. The festival will celebrate the recently established AVA, The Sierra Pelona Valley Appellation. Over 20 of California’s best boutique wineries will be joining Reyes Winery to pour at the event. Additionally, guests will be treated to gourmet food pairings from highly acclaimed Los Angeles area chefs and artisanal food makers. There will also be live music; a Latin American Art Exhibit; a gift boutique; and an expansive silent auction including a chance at a tour of the Sees Candy Factory and Anheuser Busch.
