2007 Tasting Sells Out!

Cal Poly Girls Reunite at 2007 Tasting!

 
The San Francisco Fort Mason Festival Pavilion had a capacity filled crowd on Saturday, February 24 for the seventh annual San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Public Tasting. “All the tickets sold out before the event and there were not any tickets available during the day of the event”, reports Bob Fraser. “The public tasting was a tremendous success. The award winning wines, food from artisan producers, Smart & Final Culinary Stage Demonstrations, Maverick Tasting, sponsor booth presentations, and all the other elements of the public tasting was marvelous! A great time for all!

Background:
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.
