Wineries will be able to offer wine sales by the bottle
Over the past 16 years, wine trade and consumers have responded enthusiastically to our tastings in San Francisco at Fort Mason Center. We are changing to a Saturday and Sunday format after consultation with other events about the best times for consumer attendance, and assessing several years of trade attendance trends. Last year there were over 2,500 trade that attended along with 606 consumers. The focus this year is to build the consumer and the wine trade attendance.
