Family Winemakers of California
Small, family-owned wine producers across the state are the foundation of Family Winemakers of California. Formed in 1991 to lobby for the rights of its members to freely produce, market and sell their products, we currently represent over 450 producers. FWC hosts these tastings because they provide a cost-effective marketing approach for small, family-owned wineries, which allows them to share what the vines produce and they craft so you can enjoy it on your table.
Wineries pour at our Pasadena and San Mateo tastings. The wineries remain dedicated to producing the finest wines they can from what vineyards across the state offer. You'll taste the passion for combining the right soil, the right grape, and the right microclimate into every bottle.
Our legislative and regulatory work augment these trade and consumer tastings to help our members succeed in a highly competitive marketplace. This will be our 11th year hosting the Pasadena Tasting.
