Garasite is a French term, that means artisan. It is the word, that described the Garagiste Wine Fest- that took place, last week at the marble encased Wiltern Theater. The fest has taken place for five years now, since 2011. The fest promoted an explorer taste of fine wine and a anti-snob tone, that would make either generation of the Ghostbusters proud.
The amazing thing about the dozens of wine tasted, is the uniqueness of all the brands.
One of the best marketed is Paso Port’s Ruby wine. A red wine, who’s sexy Latina Model on the cover sheet, is there -in order to attract men and lesbians. There were three more brands including Angelica, Violita and Tawny. The models don’t really exist and were created by the artist, to create a true full bodied look
and feel ,for the aroma of the wine.
Bertha Mae was a brownie company, that hoped to use its brownie gift baskets, that are to be sold in wine stories. The samples were pretty tasty. The Chocolate Stache sold spicy chocolate bites, which used the wine to cool down its sweet and sour taste in your mouth. A quirky old Paul Hogan type, of the Australian Kitchen proudly serves a tangy tomato sauce that is used on Hot dogs and “breakfast eggs.”
The great surprise is the sole black winery, Theopolis Vineyards. Near Sonoma County, the vineyards are run by Theodora Lee, a trial lawyer who runs the place on the side. Their best wine, is called Symphony- a white wine taste is similar, to fine Vitamin Water with a rich wetness.
The worst thing at the event is a guy who- looked like Brad Sherwood, playing Jason from his new Jason show. Mostly, his bigoted lying cunt lady friend of his sucks, due to their rudeness. He was nice and cordial, at first.The worst wine was a Cabernet Sauvigon called Prism. It is too bitter and oaky to enjoy,despite an elegant design sticker with dark bottling.
