Move Over Margarita!


AltaMed Health Services, will host the Third Annual East LA Meets Napa celebration that will feature more than 20 wineries that are Latino-owned, ÔÇômanaged or with Latino wine makers and 20 Los Angeles area Mexican restaurants.

East LA Meets Napa will be attended by roughly 1,000 wine and culinary enthusiasts who will also enjoy great music and wonderful conversation in one of Los Angeles' most historic venues ÔÇô Union Station. The celebration speaks to a trend among aficionados of Mexican cuisine to choose wine over beer or margaritas to accompany their meal.

Many of the business owners that will showcase their products share an immigrant experience, with some of the winemakers working their way up from the fields. The event provides these entrepreneurs with the opportunity to come together to support AltaMed's mission of providing quality, culturally relevant health care to underserved populations throughout Southern California.
