Gifting Lounge Was a Suite Treat to Celebrate Golden Globes!
This is part 2 for the GBK Golden Globes Celebrity Gifting Lounge in Beverly Hills. This star-studded event was amazing. The number of name-brand celebrities that you recognize was astonishingly great. Seeing “Sam” (Sam Trammel) from True Blood was great and more people than that.
Here’s a broad list of movies and television shows that had cast and/or crew that had indicated they were stopping by. The photos I saw told me that this was pretty much on the mark. Given that I came on day 2 and later in the afternoon- and it was exceptionally warm– many people had come and gone already!
12 Years a Slave
Agents of Shield
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
Despicable Me 2
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
Masters of Sex
NCIS: Los Angeles
Once Upon a Time
Orange Is the New Black
The Good Wife
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
The Wolf of Wall Street
V Wine Room
One of the key players in the event was the V Wine Room. They are an amazing draw to this event because V Wine Room is the only dedicated tasting room in Los Angeles; proudly pouring limited production boutique California wines not found anywhere else in Los Angeles.
V was chosen as the exclusive wine provider because of the unique nature of its Napa style tasting room. V will pour a Sauvignon Blanc made by Tara Gomez of Kita Wines. Gomez is the only Native American winemaker in the country and her crisp, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc is not to be missed. Joining Gomez’s Sauvignon Blanc is an artful blend of Sangiovese and Syrah crafted by Tessa Marie wines, Tessa Parker being the granddaughter of Fess Parker the noble actor and vintner. Other featured wines include floral Viogniers from both Four Brix and Sol Rouge and an earthy Pinot Noir from CNagy wines. Proprietor Mikey Consbruck exclaims, “I’m proud to operate a unique and local business promoting boutique California wines and their vintners. Our regulars rave about the wines and I’m sure the presenters and nominees will agree.” V’s gift to the nominees is a yearlong membership to V’s wine club. “The wine club allows people to enjoy our wines and participate in exclusive events together while expanding their palates.” Mikey invites everyone interested in the wine club to come in and sample some great wines, sure to be enjoyed by Hollywood elite, and learn about membership benefits.

I seem to have missed talking to them entirely (but then I didn’t have a lot of time either) which was sad because I like good wine and I talk about wine on this blog. If you are in LA, make sure you stop by this wine merchant and take a test drive on some new vintages and brands!
