    January 28, 2019

    The annual Uncorked Wine Festival is less than month away now. Soon, thousands will flock to Union Station for the ultimate wine-lover experience. From your home in the apartments in Northridge, you’re just a short distance away from the festivities. If you’re ready to let loose and taste some of the best glasses in existence, then here’s everything you need to know.

    What Is Uncorked?

    Uncorked Wine Festivals offer a unique experience for enthusiasts of the drink. They combine decadent venues, live entertainment, delectable eats, and a ton of wine. The event caters to both aficionados as well as amateur enthusiasts, providing an all-encompassing experience for everyone.

    The Time, Date, and Location

    First things first, you need to know where you’re going. Uncorked takes place at Union Station. That’s 800 North Alameda Street in Los Angeles. Save the date for January 26th, with doors opening at 5 p.m. and the event wrapping up around 9 p.m.

    There two ticket options for this year’s festival. The first costs $70, giving you VIP access and admission at 5 p.m. That includes an additional hour of tasting, shorter lines, and exclusive wines poured only during that hour. The second option is $60 for general admission, which allows you to enter the festival at 6 p.m. Each ticket includes all of your wine tasting in addition to admission. That’s right, there’s no extra cost involved to drink. However, you will have to pay for any meals from the food trucks.

    Tickets and food revenue both benefit the Rose City Crystals Figure Skating Team this year. This non-profit organization promotes positive teamwork, sportsmanship, and character building though figure skating. Girls of all ages participate on the team in national championships as they better themselves through personal development and learn valuable skills for life after school.

    Food and Wine

    So, how many wines do you think you’ll get to taste at the event? 20? 30? There are over 60 wineries sporting their best bottles at Uncorked this year. That’s a lot of unique blends and styles to try while you’re there. Names ranging from Oyster Bay New Zealand to 19 Crimes and Castello Di Gabbiano are all on the menu.

    As for food, you have a wide variety of cuisines to choose from thanks to the diversity of food trucks available. Here’s what you can look forward this year:
