It was a picturesque day on the Bay with clear skies, a cool breeze and hundreds of sail boats from the Corinthian Mid-Winter’s race dotted the San Francisco Bay with their colorful spinnakers and provided a spectacular kaleidoscopic backdrop for the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Public Tasting.  

"It was the perfect day for the annual Public Tasting," exclaimed Bob Fraser, Executive Director. "We were pleased to announce that once again it was a sellout event with over 5,000 people in the Festival Pavilion at Fort Mason Center enjoying some of the finest wines in the world. Mix in the delicious food and it made for an exceptional environment where friends and family united." 

Sponsored last year by Bevmo!, the event featured thousands of award-winning wines and delicious gourmet food provided by local artisans from SavorCalifornia.com, the International Culinary Center, California Culinary Academy and the culinary department at the Santa Rosa Junior College. More than 800 wineries participated and joining them was sponsor Anheuser Busch with wonderful selections of beer. There was excitement everywhere with celebrity appearances by renowned chef Tyler Florence and Bachelor star Ben Flajnik. This was all captured by KGO Radio's Ryan Scott's live broadcast from the event where he interviewed many of the winemakers.

Make sure you save the date for next year's San Francisco Chronicle's Public Tasting on February 15, 2014. See you then.
