Fun Had By All At The 2014 Art and Wine Festival
|The Futon Shop San Diego|
My name is Matt and I am here to answer all your questions about sleeping organically without any chemicals. I live in San Diego, and I promote Organic Futons in La Jolla. Coming up on my tenth year working for The Futon SHop, I am glad to share my knowledge of sleeping green, but I also have a knack for partying like the best of them. Here at The Futon Shop San Diego, we are blessed with the sunshine, beautiful men and women, culture and fine dining. With that comes the need to celebrate and share with like minded people in the community. La Jolla is that kind of community. It's recent charity came with a glass of wine at the 2014 La Jolla Art and Wine Festival.
While The Futon Shop in San Diego's doors were still open for business October 11th and 12th this year, the town opened its doors to the community bringing people from all over the state to share their work and taste with the best wine and art in in the state. Not limited to just wine, the festival brought some of the nation’s top breweries to show off their own style beer. The funds raised throughout the festival went toward the schools here in La Jolla. There are more than a few local school programs that really need funding and what a perfect way to support local education. Why cut programs when you can help save and help them grow with a great event.
Beer and Wine
Local breweries jump in and bring lots of positive attention to the festival, being that San Diego is the #1 leader city of breweries. The La Jolla brewery, Ballast Point, San Diego’s own brewery, was proud to share a long running beer winner with Urban street brewing co. stone brewing co . My new favorite flavor is Pumpkin ale for the season, of coarse. I had fun checking out the festival when with the stein holding contest happened and was helpful to raise more money for the cause.
The wine too was definitely represented well. I was surprised to see so many different wine companies showing off the fall flavor. Not so local breweries even came to show off their hopps. From Eugene Or. Ninkasa Brewery was welcomed with open arms and mug’s in La Jolla. They are amazing because of their hands-on approach with helping local community through habitat for humanity. They are known to host and sponsor many events that support fund raising for children causes. I’m more of a drinking game fan and ninkasa brewery had many gaming options. In my opinion I hope for more drinking games in 2015.
Local Mexican Wineries:
The nice surprise from the fest is seeing local Mexican wineries such as; Bodagas Santo Thomas, hacienda la Lomita vineyard , and San Pasqua. Enoteca Cava Maciel has a local wine bar in Ensenada, not too far at all from San Diego, and there you can discover so many great wines for a steal. Vineyard visits are also welcomed and encouraged, but the problem is trying to leave. Once there, you just want stay and taste the day away.
There were 200 different artists from all over, local and not so local, putting on a magnificent smorgasbord of art, from sculpting metal, glass to canvas, almost every medium was represented beyond talented. The Futon Shop supports local festivals like the Art and Wine Festival and encourages other companies to make American made product.
