Both Extravaganza & LA WineFest had rather well-currated food pairings last year, and are 2 of the more affordable al fresco parties. For 2010, Extravaganza featured MoMed, Cafe Was, MILK, Upstairs 2, Chaya, Jar, BOA, making it the best “gourmet” food + wine pairing in LA.
The Saban Free Clinic will host the 14th Annual Extravaganza for the Senses. Featuring a lively backdrop of music and a silent auction, guests will enjoy unlimited samples of gourmet food and wine from more than 100 wineries and 40 Los Angeles area restaurants.
All net proceeds from the event will directly benefit The Saban Free Clinic.

Finally, you have the grand daddy of all LA region wine tastings, the Ojai Wine Festival. In its 25th year, Ojai promises the biggest wine selection out of all local wine festivals, but food is for purchase only due to the absolutely steal of an entry price.
From the site:
Sunset Magazine named Ojai one of the top five food and wine havens in the west for 2009 and many believe the festival has played a role by introducing people from throughout Southern California and the Central Coast to the bounty of Ojai. In the past twenty-five years the Ojai Wine Festival has raised over $615,000.00. All the funds raised from the Ojai Wine Festival go to aid many important Rotary projects, in particular our hard hit public schools, international clean drinking water projects as well as eradicating polio worldwide.
