8th Annual Ventura County Wine Trail Celebration Returns to The Collection RiverPark Oxnard

The Ventura County Wine Trail brings the 8th annual Wine Trail Celebration to Ventura County, Thursday, July 9. The festival will be held at The Collection at RiverPark in Oxnard for the third year – West Ventura County’s newest shopping, dining and entertainment destination. The festival will be located on Park View Court; an outdoor tree-lined street featuring beautiful artwork by Michael Amescua.

The festival will feature Ventura County’s local boutique wineries; each sharing their latest releases. For wine lovers, this event is truly unique – as local wine makers bring in grapes from every major growing region across California (from Napa Valley to Santa Barbara). This allows Ventura County Wine Trail tasters to experience the very best of California wine county – all without the road trip. This event will boast more than 30 different varietals and blends, and provide an opportunity to meet the wine makers behind them.

In addition to the lineup of wines, guests will taste the very best in local cuisine – fresh from the area’s hottest restaurants. Chefs prepare their signature dishes onsite for attendees to enjoy over the three hour celebration.

This year’s special musical guests are local favorites; Blue Latitude is classic rhythm and blues, soul, Motown and rock and roll band. This 12 piece band, featuring female and male lead vocals and a 5 piece horn line is perfect for the Ventura County Wine Trail celebration. The Blue Latitude’s flexible repertoire features favorites from the 1960’s through today’s hits.

Between delicious wines, mouthwatering fare and unforgettable music – the 8th annual Ventura County Wine Trail Celebration is a festival not to miss!
