About
THE ORIGINAL CATALINA WINE MIXER

In 2014, a newly hired Catalina Island Company employee asked, “So when’s the Catalina Wine Mixer?” referring to the iconic scene from the hit comedy Step Brothers. When he was told there wasn’t one, he took it on himself to organize the first annual Original Catalina Wine Mixer in 2015 at Descanso Beach Club in Avalon, a day-long tribute to the Step Brothers, featuring music, food, drinks and a whole lot of fun. 
 
Since then, the Original Catalina Wine Mixer has evolved into a unique wine tasting event, where guests can enjoy the beauty and charm of Catalina Island as they sample a variety of offerings from notable West Coast wineries. Of course, there’s still a great line up of live music, parties and fun activities to go along with the traditional screening of Step Brothers at the historic Casino Theatre.
 
DESCANSO BEACH CLUB
There’s no place quite like Descanso Beach Club, one of the last public beaches in Southern California where you can legally have a cocktail in your hand and your feet in the sand. Located just a short stroll along the waterfront past the iconic Catalina Casino, this picturesque venue features Avalon's only beachside restaurant and bar. The Club's huge ocean-view lawn serves as the hub for all the Catalina Wine Mixer fun. It’s also where dozens of wineries exhibit their vintages for thousands of wine lovers from all over Southern California to enjoy.
 

Info

GETTING TO CATALINA ISLAND
Your Catalina Wine Mixer adventure begins even before you get here. Most people take a relaxing cruise aboard Catalina Express or Catalina Flyer. Some experience the unique thrill of a 20-minute flight on IEX Helicopters. A few fly private planes into Catalina’s Airport in the Sky. While others set sail on their own boats and reserve a mooring with the Avalon Harbor Department. It doesn’t matter how you get here. Just get here.
 
WHERE TO STAY
We have two lodging packages available. Choose from the Catalina Wine Mixer Package or the Catalina Wine Mixer VIP Package
 
WHAT TO DO
Before or after the Original Catalina Wine Mixer, you can enjoy a variety of land tours (see bison), boat tours (see dolphins and sealions), fly through the air on the Catalina Zip Line Eco Tour and try your skills at the Catalina Aerial Adventure. You can also tour the historic Catalina Casino, explore the Catalina Island Museum, take a hike through the Wrigley Memorial and Botanical Gardens, show of your skills at the Mini Golf Gardens and of course rent a golf cart and see the town.
 
WHAT TO WEAR
While we encourage everyone to bring their own island style to the Original Catalina Wine Mixer, keep in mind that it’s a sunny beach setting with warm sand and soft grass, so cool casual clothing and flat comfortable shoes are recommended. Temperatures tend to drop at night in September, so bring an extra layer. If you want to take a dip in the crystal blue waters of Descanso Cove, you’ll need a swimsuit. Don’t forget the shades and sunscreen.
 

Merchandise

Original Catalina Wine Mixer clothing, tote bags, souvenirs and keepsakes make ideal conversation starters. Everywhere you go, people will ask: "What the @#$% is the Original Catalina Wine Mixer?"
