September is California Wine month, and what better way to celebrate than by discovering select California wineries through a month-long wine tasting series at gLAnce Wine Bar at JW Marriott Los Angeles. “Meet the Winemaker” features a guest wine maker each week who hosts the complementary tasting where you can learn about the vineyard’s varietals and enjoy a selection of light bites.

Sept. 5. Sandhi Wines: A small production California winery focusing on select vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills of Santa Barbara.
Sept. 12. Mayacamas Vineyards: Authentic and classical wines from the wine estates in the mountains between the Sonoma and Napa Valleys.
