Great Wine – Family Winemakers Tasting is Scheduled for Sunday, August 11 in San Francisco

Family Winemakers of California, an association of family-owned wineries in California, is proud to announce the 2019 date for its San Francisco tasting. This year, the trade and consumer tasting returns to San Francisco and takes place at The Midway – 900 Marin Street again this year, on Sunday, August 11. This location is in the up-and-coming dogpatch area of SF. The tasting spotlights 70 producers from California’s small, family-owned wineries pouring 300 different wines, said Pete Downs, President of the Family Winemakers of California.

“Imagine the variety and choice in wine that’s available every year from California wineries. Many of these award winning and acclaimed wines will be tasted for the first time in the San Francisco area. This tasting is always a hit, but it’s also ideal to meet the owners and winemakers that craft this great wine. The passion-driven winemakers of these small production wines is what makes our tasting event really special. Wineries will feature many hard-to find wines poured by the winemaker or winery owner themselves, in most cases,” added Downs. “Our guests look for a different type of event, where they can discover the best wines that aren’t available everywhere and get the opportunity to speak directly with the winemaker or the winery owner and get to hear firsthand about the family tradition and story behind the wines being poured. They also love the atmosphere of our events. We intend to keep it going at this venue, and we are excited to be here again this year.”

The 2019 San Francisco Tasting opens its doors on Sunday, August 11 at 12:00 pm, for specially ticketed consumers, and 2pm for the general consumer. The tasting is targeted to members of the trade and discerning consumers. The event ends at 5:00 pm. It’s also worth noting that orders can be placed that day for wines you like for shipment to your home, making it easy to enjoy your favorite wine later.
