The Long Beach Grand Cru consists of two events: an international wine competition that draws entries from hundreds of wineries, and a public tasting. The competition, which is closed to the public, is judged by several notable wine luminaries, including winemakers, sommeliers, and journalists. The public tasting is a festive event that raises funds for Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, the frontline law firm for poor and low-income people in Los Angeles.
