The Majestic Downtown (Los Angeles, CA)
No worries — despite the intriguing NakedWines.com title, you won’t be tasting in the nude, nor will the 20 or more attending winemakers be serving their samples sans clothes. The moniker comes from the idea behind this radical new company, which crowd-funds 150 independent winemakers from all over the world, cutting out the middleman to bring excellent prices to thirsty web-savvy consumers. Now they’re taking their show on the road with a bus tour that hits five cities in five days, with more than 90 wines available to try, bottles to buy, and the rare and enviable chance to meet and mingle with the producers themselves.
