Great Wine – Family Winemakers Tasting is Scheduled for Sunday, August 26, 2018 in San Francisco

Family Winemakers of California, an association of family-owned wineries in California, is proud to announce the 2018 date for its San Francisco tasting. This year, the trade and consumer tasting returns to San Francisco and takes place at an exciting new venue for us, The Midway – 900 Marin Street, in the up and coming dogpatch area of SF, on Sunday, August 26, 2018. The tasting spotlights over 60 producers from California’s small, family-owned wineries pouring upwards of 300 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,” added Downs. “Our guests always say the best part of the event, in addition to the outstanding wines, is hearing 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 new venue, and we are excited to be here.”

The 2018 San Francisco Tasting opens its doors on Sunday, August 26 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.

Family Winemakers of California was established in 1990 in response to a need for public policy involvement for the small wine producers of California. The association has become a strong force in the wine industry, lobbying for wine producer rights, and has an active membership of over 350 California wineries. This is our 28th year hosting tasting events for our member wineries.
