More than 550 people turned out for the La Cañada Flintridge Ninth Annual Wine and Gourmet Food Tasting on Sunday, benefiting the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation Endowment Fund.
Local wine shop Le Petit Vendome, along with other wine companies, curated the wine tastings for the event’s 20 wine booths. Local wine shops Montrose Rosso Wines and Montrose Wine Cave donated wines for the event’s auctions.
About 25 different restaurants, most from the La Cañada and Montrose areas, served up taquitos, pastries, curried chicken, beef brisket and other food items.
The Kiwanis Club of La Cañada, was a major sponsor and helped to market and organize the entire event in conjunction with the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce, Le Petit Vendome and Verdugo Hills Hospital.
In addition to supporting the quality education of La Cañada public schools, many people came to the event to enjoy the food, wine, beer and unseasonably cool weather.
