Save Mart Wine Garden

Experience the rich diversity of California’s best wines by tasting your way through the Save Mart Wine Garden. Here fairgoers can try award-winning California wines and enjoy other pairing products. As America’s top wine producer, California makes 81% of all U.S. wine and is the world’s 4th leading wine producer.

Visit Save Mart Wine Garden each day of the Fair to try award winners from the CA State Fair’s Commercial Wine Competition and sample California wines, as featured by our Winery of the Day sponsors, while learning more about their wines and the wine-making process.

Since California has a wide range of terroir, it makes it the perfect place to grow nearly every kind of grape. In fact, you’ll find more than 100 varieties across the state, giving our winemakers the latitude to create complex varietals and unique, expressive blends, and all-new ready-to-drink margarita wine cocktails!

The Save Mart Wine Garden is the nation’s largest public tasting of Gold Medal-winning California wines.
