Benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, VinFort will pour Cognacs, ports and late harvest wine brands within the Jeanie Madsen and Hamilton Galleries on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, on November 7th, 2014 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. 

Barbara Balik, Director of Special Giving at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, notes: "California Winemasters is excited to offer something a little new and different to wine-tasters who enjoy fortified wines as much as they do table wines. The timing is perfect too!  Just before the holiday season." 

Natasha Swords, of Swords PR, who is responsible for the event's logistics, states, "From Norton Late Harvest wines to Ye Olde King's Head Shoppe Christmas pies there will be an array of Cognacs and fortified wine brands, as well as holiday inspired foods, to get us all in the mood."

The event features fortified wines for the dedicated wine connoisseur as well as "art for the eyes, fortified wines for the palate, and live jazz for the ears" Swords explains.  Plus, "local restaurants will be there to keep our tummies satisfied with their signature holiday fare!." 

VinFort Santa Monica 2014 is a fortified wine tasting hosted by California Winemasters in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
