Over the past 16 years, wine trade and consumers have responded enthusiastically to our tastings in San Francisco at Fort Mason Center. We are changing to a Saturday and Sunday format after consultation with other events about the best times for consumer attendance, and assessing several years of trade attendance trends. Last year there were over 2,500 trade that attended along with 606 consumers. The focus this year is to build the consumer and the wine trade attendance.
Your registration will not be confirmed until payment of the registration fee and 2013 membership dues are received and your certificate of insurance is on file (it is the responsibility of the winery to get the insurance information to us). Wineries with pending registrations (i.e. registration form has been received but payment of fee and/or dues have not) will not be listed on our invitation or on our web site.
Registration Fee: $625.00 (two-day fee; you may elect to pour both or individual days) To pay for the registration fee go to www.familywinemakers.org.

Our first tasting was held on November 12, 1991, in the Sheraton Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Family Winemakers had 71 member wineries back then, and 47 of them poured that night for about 350 members of the wine trade. We've grown. We have over 450 members today and many of them pour at one or all of our tastings: Bay Area and Southern California. We've grown, and so have our tastings, but some things haven't changed. The wineries are just as dedicated as they were in 1991 to producing the finest wines they can, the winemakers are just as passionate about the right soil, the right grape, the right microclimate. And Family Winemakers is just as committed to presenting our member wineries and their wines at tastings that showcase the breadth and depth of winemaking in our state. Family Winemakers ... Taste California!
