Cal Poly Girls Enjoy Tasting!

 
Founded in 1983 as the Cloverdale Citrus Fair Wine Competition, the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition has evolved through the years, broadening its base to an ever expanding number of wine regions. Beginning in 2000 the event was renamed the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and a public tasting of the medal winning wines began taking place in San Francisco.

Today the San Francisco Wine Competition includes wines from throughout the United States and has become the world’s largest competition of American wines and the public tasting is one of the premier consumer wine and food tastings.

Three Cal Poly girls traveled from San Luis Obispo to join 4,550 participants in the 2006 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Tasting at the Festival Pavilion at Fort Mason Center on Saturday, February 25. The annual event sold out midway though the afternoon. Erin Thompson, third year Agriculture Business Cal Poly student simply states, “It was a lot of fun!” Her sister, Erica Thompson, 5th year Civil Engineering major says, “I can’t think of a better way than spend a Saturday afternoon drinking fine wine and tasting great food with old friends while making new ones”. Molly Wharton, 5th year nutrition major exclaims, “We all had a fabulous time. Good friends, good wine, fabulous food- that’s all you need for a great party”.

It seems this was a consensus of the throng of Californians’ that attended the 2006 Chronicle Tasting. The Smart & Final Culinary Concepts Stage was a special hit along with the major sponsor and food vendors in attendance. The Willi’s Wine Bar Special Tasting attendee’s were raving over the exquisite foods served in the upstairs mezzanine.
