Lake County Home Wine and Beer Makers’ Festival

06.10.2023 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — It’s time to mark your calendars for this year’s annual Lake County Home Wine and Beer Makers’ Festival at Lakeport’s Library Park.

The event takes place from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 10.

General admission is free. Wine and beer tasters will pay $30 in advance or $35 at the gate to taste samples from home wine and beer makers.

There will also be some of Lake County’s finest commercial wines available for tasting this year from Six Sigma, Smiling Dogs and Rosa D’Oro.

As it has over the past several decades, the Winefest features wine and beer tasting, along with a large variety of booths with artwork, crafts, clothing, and agricultural products for folks to wander through.

Music will be provided by The Hip Replacements, and several musicians from the Lake County Symphony will also be on hand to entertain during the day.

Attendees at this year’s event can expect a variety of delicious food choices from local vendors: La Catrina Food Truck offers a selection of Mexican favorites; The Noodle Bowl will provide their popular ramen bowls with grilled meat and vegetables; and Bing’s Kitchen again brings their tasty Filipino food (lumpia). Ripe Choice Farm and Catering, Villa’s Snow Cones, and Danae’s Desserts will also be there.

Volunteers of the LCSA Wine Club organize this yearly event to benefit the Lake County Symphony Association, or LCSA.

Proceeds are used to support LCSA’s activities, including in-school music programs for students, scholarships, concerts and underwriting of the Lake County Symphony and the Community & Youth Orchestra.

Wine makers, home brewers, and all nonfood vendors have until June 3 to reserve a spot at the Winefest.

There is no booth fee for home wine and beer makers, or commercial wineries who offer their wines for tasting. More details and applications can be found online at

Advance tickets are available at several Lakeport locations: Watershed Books, Wine in the Willows, and the Lake County Chamber of Commerce. Tickets can also be found at Laujor Estate Winery in Kelseyville, and online, through Eventbrite.
