Registration Fee

There is no registration fee for this meeting. The following expenses will be covered by IHAA: vineyard tour and wine tasting, lunch the day of the meeting. All outside activities (group dinners, transportation, etc.) are the responsibility of individual members.

The Locations

The trip begins in Los Angeles and ends in the Central Coast wine region. This allows for extended vacation opportunities before or after the meeting.

The Divergent factory is in Torrance, CA, only 25 minutes from LAX airport. It is also only 25 minutes from Redondo Beach area, which is where we will be staying.

The meeting is taking place in Paso Robles, in the Central Coast wine region, 3.5 hours north of LA.


Flights into LAX (Los Angeles) are the best option for arriving.

Transportation options between Los Angeles and Paso Robles include:

  • Rent a car and driving. We will survey attendees to find out who may want to share a car (and who may be willing to rent a larger car and act as a driver).
  • Direct flights from LAX to SBP (San Luis Obispo), which is 40 minutes from Paso Robles, on United Airlines. Please note, however, that these flights are in the evening only, so choosing this option would result in missing other activities.
  • We will also consider a coach bus, depending on interest from members. We will survey  members after the RSVP date to determine interest.
