The ninth annual Kosher Food & Wine Experience (KFWE) Los Angeles, the largest public kosher food and wine event in California, is to be held at the Petersen Automotive Museum on February 15, 2017, at 6 p.m.
According to a press release, KFWE Los Angeles brings kosher wine and spirits to Southern California from France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Israel, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, Australia and the United States. The evening also spotlights fine kosher cuisine from restaurants such Tierra Sur, La Gondola, and Meshuga 4 Sushi.
Herzog Wine Cellars, a California-based operation, has developed a partnership with the Petersen Automotive Museum to house the Los Angeles event for the next three years. The KFWE venue is estimated to host more than 1,500 attendees at the 2017 event, including celebrities, winemakers, culinary chefs and retailers.
Before the event opens to the public, there is an exclusive, invitation-only trade portion of KFWE Los Angeles that is extended to guests of Herzog Wine Cellars and its parent company, Royal Wine Corporation. The trade portion includes a media lounge for interviews with winemakers from around the globe, such as Herzog’s head winemaker Joe Hurliman; celebrated chefs; the organizers of KFWE, including the Herzog family; and industry experts such Joshua Greenstein, an authority on Israeli wines, and Ira Norof, a certified wine educator and director of education for Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits.
