Winetasting at PALI WINE in Anaheim's Packing House District
PALI WINES ( is a Lompoc-based (Santa Barbara area) vineyard that has brought their winetasting experiences to major Southern California cities including their latest upscale experience in the older, but now hipster section of Anaheim that once upon a time used to be the the location of the city's various packing house businesses. We will be visiting their cutting edge designed Anaheim tasting room and leisurely tasting wines for about an hour and a half before then walking across the street to experience dinner in their new Packing House gastro-pub food hall (see separate event listing). The idea is to leisurely enjoy a flight of wines, but then going with our group to have dinner across the street to allow members share more social time and to not immediately drink and drive after their tasting. For those who would like some light foods (before dinner) with their winetasting, appetizer type food times will also be available for purchase. ADMISSION: Free, just pay for your own wine and food items PARKING: Limited free lot, valet and street parking is available nearby

    What we're about

    Public Group

    GAY WINOS is a Gay mens WINE & FOOD TASTING & SOCIAL GROUP that was launched in April 2010 and hosts at least 3-4 wine or food related outings every month. Our group is for Gay men who would like to learn more about the local Southern California wine & food scene, network with other professionals and meet new friends. We visit local wine bars or restaurants and events throughout the greater L.A. area on weeknights or weekends and occasionally get together at members' homes.

    GAY WINOS also plans occasional visits to wineries (from Temecula to Paso Robles), wine festivals or unique events that integrate wine and/or food into the mix, but run the gamut. See our "past events" section which shows the types of diverse things we do including historical tours, outdoor canyon hikes, watching female roller derby, movie nights and more. To offer more variety we will occasionally place emphasis on beer or just food offerings. And you do NOT have to drink alcohol at any of our events to participate--though you will certainly in most cases be exposed to it.

    Our membership is varied and open to Gay men between 25 years old and "youthfully" older. We only request that you do NEVER consume more than the legal amount of alcohol then attempt to drive after any of our events. If you unintentionally do consume too much wine then please ask another group member for a ride home or call a taxi. We want to make sure our members are safe and sound!

    If you want to suggest group outing ideas please feel free to do so. WE ONLY ASK THAT YOU PLEASE HONOR YOUR WORD AND DO NOT R.S.V.P. UNLESS YOU ARE FAIRLY SURE YOU CAN ATTEND AN EVENT.

    Welcome to GAY WINOS--and as the late jazz diva Shirley Horn used to say "Here's to Life, Here's to Love...Here's to YOU!"
