Southern Exposure Garagiste Festival

The 9th Southern Exposure Garagiste Festival is returning to the quaint town of Solvang in February 2023 to give you rare access to the region’s best small, hard-to-find winemakers. At this engaging event, you will discover and taste amazing, cutting-edge wines from our roster of high-quality, micro-production, commercial wineries from all over California’s Central Coast.

100 Ultra-Premium Wines

Explore over 100 ultra-premium wines from 30 hard-to-find micro-wineries at both Friday night’s Rare & Reserve Party and Saturday at our Grand Tasting. The Garagiste Festival is the first and only organization that gathers these undiscovered artisan ‘garagiste’ winemakers who are making some of the best, most exciting, handcrafted small-lot wines in the world. You’ll never find these wines in supermarkets – and you’ll never find them all in one place like this. Discover the biggest “small” thing happening in the world of wine.
