Fine Wine and Mexican Cuisine are Featured at East LA Meets Napa - a

Celebration Benefiting AltaMed Health Services Corporation

LOS ANGELES, July 18 /PRNewswire/ -- AltaMed Health Services hosted its third annual East LA Meets Napa celebration featuring more than 20 Latino owned/managed wineries, Latino wine makers and 20 Los Angeles area Mexican restaurants. The event was attended by more than 1,000 wine and culinary enthusiasts who enjoyed great music, food from some of the best Mexican/Latin restaurants in the city and wonderful conversation in one of Los Angeles' most historic venues -- Union Station. The celebration speaks to a trend among aficionados of Mexican cuisine to choose wine over beer or margaritas to accompany their meal.

Many of the business owners that showcased their products share an immigrant experience, with some of the winemakers working their way up from the fields. The event provided these entrepreneurs with the opportunity to come together to support AltaMed's mission of providing quality, culturally relevant health care to underserved populations throughout Southern California.

"This year's event has been the most successful yet and we expect the attendance to keep growing," said Castulo De La Rocha, AltaMed CEO. "These Latino entrepreneurs and event sponsors are not only here to showcase their products, they are supporting our organization's programs and our mission to provide quality health care to underserved communities in the Southern California region."

In 1990 there were just a few Latino-owned vineyards and today there are well over 15 and growing each year. One such success story is that of Ceja Vineyards. In 1983 Pedro and Amelia Ceja with other family members, pooled their resources and invested in fifteen acres in Carneros. Coming to the United States as farm workers, the family has worked hard over the years for Ceja's stellar reputation.
