Garagiste, A Unique Wine Fest at Union Station on July 12

The Garagiste wine movement, one that encompasses a number of wine producers who focus on small production and outside-the-box approaches, is hitting Union Station on July 12 with its first city rendition of the popular Central Coast festival.

Dubbed Garagiste: Urban Exposure, the gathering will have 40 wineries offering rare and notable wines to those who pick up tickets starting May 15. Expect a relaxing tasting event in one of LA's most charming outdoor event spaces.

The name garagiste originally comes from Bordeaux producers who eschewed the traditional methods for wines made in "garages" instead of chateau. That mentally started taking hold in local regions such as the Central Coast, Paso Robles, and more, where the American Garagiste festivals started in 2011.
