Wine Tasting

The Artichoke Festival hosts two days of tastings from California wineries from as far as Santa Barbara to Grass Valley, and Santa Cruz to Lodi. Guests over 21 can stroll and sip wines, visit with the vintners, and even enter a raffle on site for a chance to win a barrel full of wine to enjoy all year long!
