California winemakers will be at the California Garagiste Festival this weekend.

The festival started Friday and ends Sunday night.

Tickets for Friday are sold out but people can still buy tickets for Saturday and Sunday through their website.

The festival has been going on for more than 20 years and happens four times a year in Solvang, Los Angeles, Sonoma and in Paso Robles.

Garagiste Events President Stewart McLennan said all festivals are different.

“The difference between our festival and a lot of larger festivals is the winemakers are mostly the people you’ll be talking to across the table,” McLennan said.

Garagiste is a French word that originally referred to people who produced wine in their garages.
