Premiere Wine & Food Festival Brings Vegas Icon The Venetian/Palazzo Hotel to Southern California


In a move that unites two of the West Coast’s most vibrant symbols of luxury living, The Venetian/Palazzo has been announced as sponsors of this year’s Calabasas/Malibu Wine & Food Festival. By joining forces with these famed Las Vegas resorts, event organizer Barcelona Enterprises is crossing the short divide between these two urban hot-spots, bringing Las Vegas To L.A.

As Las Vegas has evolved, The Venetian/Palazzo have taken their rightful places as the platinum standard of Las Vegas resorts, and their sponsorship of The Calabasas/Malibu Wine & Food Festival is a match made in heaven. This ideal partnership is a convergence all things elegant, and festival guests will have the opportunity to get to know one of the world’s most famous resorts as they indulge in the finest foods & spirits available in one venue.

A premiere destination for fun, The Calabasas/Malibu Wine & Food Festival offers a wide array of wine & spirits paired with fresh local fare. From eclectic offerings by boutique vintners to sumptuous samplings of major label liquor, this event gives patrons the chance to take a tasty tour of the best that So Cal has to offer. Set against the stunning backdrop of the posh enclave of Calabasas, this event emanates the luxury that Southern California’s elite community of Malibu has long been noted for.

This year, proceeds from the festival will benefit the non-profit organization Rock Against Trafficking.

“What we have come to realize is that our events provide the perfect opportunity for widely recognized brands to take a stance on issues that truly matter. By sponsoring the festival, The Venetian/Palazzo is using the power of their name to bring public awareness to the plight of victims of human trafficking.” Barcelona Enterprises CEO Alan Semsar said recently.

Barcelona has taken the fast-track to become one of the leading charitable event organizers, and has a long list of charitable giving.
