Our annual event takes place at the beginning of March and includes two days of in-depth Tasting seminars, Grand Tastings, a Burgundy seminar and tasting and gourmet, locally-influenced lunches and dinners. These extraordinary food and wine extravaganzas will be hosted by participating wineries and feature an outstanding panel of sommeliers from across the U.S.
Public events take place on Friday, March 3 and Saturday March 4.
There are two public tastings. If you are a winery from California, you are invited to participate in one of them. If you are winery from outside of California, you are invited to participate in both.
The Technical Symposium takes place in the two days immediately preceding WOPN - Wednesday - Thursday, March 1 - 2 at El Capitan Canyon in Goleta, but we encourage winemakers to arrive on Tuesday evening, February 28, for a welcome barbecue and social get-together.
Please use the following form to let us know which WOPN 2017 events
in which you’d like to participate. When we get all of the applications,
we'll assign wineries to specific events so that there's
a good mix at each and then let you know by email. That
email will also have a link so that you can pay for your
registration and also links that you can use to purchase additional
tickets for that event. Participation is not confirmed until you have received notice of being accepted and payment has been received. Winery registration is open through October 31, 2016, then based upon regional availability.
