Worth the Drive: Have Fun with Wine at the Second Glass Wine Riot

Print This Post Print This Post


If you’re a wine lover or just interested in learning, check out the Second Glass Wine Riot on March 25 and 26 (purchase tickets in advance). It’s a traveling expo-style party for 300 people on the dining deck of the recently renovated Santa Monica Place. After being a hit in Boston, its creators are taking the show on the road. It’s a new concept in wine education—making it really fun and a bit wacky at that! Ask any question— there is no wine snobbery here.

Wine Riot takes the stuffiness out of wine tasting—it's meant to be educational and fun.

There will be more than 250 different wines from regions around the world, including France, Chile, Greece, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, California and New England.  As you sip, you can keep track of the wines you taste on the Second Glass mobile wine app which is pre-loaded with the list of all the wines being tasted.  The app will be  available from Apple  on March 17.

Take a seminar and ask as many questions as you want.

Participate in 20-minute crash-course wine seminars, and enjoy food pairings organized by Artisan LA with local vendors and restaurants (at an extra $5 and under per pairing). You can hang out in a tasting lounge, take wacky souvenir photos in a booth and just breathe in the ocean air. Leave with complimentary bottles of Function Drinks Urban Detox to help you feel good the next morning.

A portion of the tickets goes to 826LA, a nonprofit group that supports children ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills.

Take pics in the photo booth. Costumes and props are available to go as wacky is you want!

When: March 25 (opening night), 7 p.m to 11 p.m.; $60 per person. March 26 (two shifts), 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.; $50 per person. Arrive 3o minutes prior to the start of each event for the special crash course about wine.

Where: Santa Monica Place Dining Deck, 315 Colorado Ave., Santa Monica.
