BOTH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY PARTICIPANTS ARE INVITED TO DINNER ON SATURDAY NIGHT.  THERE IS NO DINNER ON SUNDAY NIGHT.

As a Consumer “Judge for a Day” you will:

  • Test your palate, tasting and evaluating about 100-120 different wines on a panel with winemakers, restaurateurs, wine store representatives, noted wine writers, educators and recognized wine connoisseurs. (Consumer Judge votes are not counted.)
  • Learn the do’s-and-don’ts of wine judging through a brief tutorial prior to the competition, conducted by noted wine professional Jonathan Rosensen, Board Member, and owner/sommelier of The Sky Room.

Consumer Judges sit on a panel with experienced experts. Seats will be limited to one per panel with a projected seven panels each day. Tickets must be paid for by July 12, 2014.

* Learn from the best!  Board Member Jonathan Rosensen will teach a brief tutorial on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. The tutorial will be held in the conference room of the Long Beach Petroleum Club. Some of the topics covered will be the do’s and don’ts of what to look for when judging a wine; how to judge wines of different types; what to expect in a bouquet and the aroma of different varieties of grapes; and how to pair wine with food.

Your contribution as a Consumer “Judge for a Day” will help support the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles and its programs and services that assist poor people in striving to avoid homelessness, obtain food and health care, escape domestic violence, and move from welfare to work. The Long Beach Grand Cru is a prestigious international competition and is the only one offering consumers this opportunity to serve on a professional wine competition panel.

Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles

The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA), the frontline law firm for the poor in Los Angeles County and the largest law firm for the poor in California, was established in 1929 to ensure that the indigent have access to the civil justice system. LAFLA seeks to provide access to justice for poor and low-income people in greater Los Angeles who face systemic barriers to equal justice, equal opportunity and, too often, basic human rights. We change lives through direct representation, systems change and community education.

LAFLA is the first place thousands of poor people turn to when they need legal assistance with a crisis that endangers their children, homes, safety and well-being. LAFLA’s holistic legal and case management services help the most vulnerable — including children growing up in poverty, victims of domestic violence, persons with disabilities, the indigent elderly, victims of torture and human trafficking, homeless and at-risk veterans and their families — secure fundamental services, health care, decent and affordable housing, employment and consumer protections, and freedom from exploitation and abuse.

In 2013, LAFLA’s attorneys, paralegals, social workers, support staff and many dedicated volunteers served over 75,000 poor and low-income people by providing legal assistance and case management services in over 12,000 client matters benefiting 31,080 people (including more than 13,000 children in client households) and also provided important legal information and education to 45,717 self-represented litigants, held clinics and workshops attended by 3,624 people, and gave referrals to 22,394 people, providing access to justice and changing lives.
