For the seventh year running the Golden Glass will be held at San Francisco’s Fort Mason center. This year’s festivities will take place on Saturday, June 12th, 2010. This event is open wine producers from all over the world. And as a result we are hoping to build upon the buzz created by last year's event by placing a greater emphasis on sustainability.
The 2010 Golden Glass will celebrate the efforts of over 100 international wine producers who strive to protect, nurture, and revive the indigenous and classic varieties of their regions. The wineries will be clustered in designated, regional areas throughout the pavilion to help attendees taste and learn about the regional and terroir nuances directly from the winemakers and proprietors themselves.
Slow Food Plaza will also be expanded. Focusing solely on food this “Plaza” pays homage to the open food markets found in Italy and other European countries where tasting the best and freshest foods, seasonal vegetables, salami, cheeses and breads directly from the hands of the purveyor was a given as opposed to a novelty. Last year's event garnered over 25 local food purveyors along with a dozen NGO's. This year we expect to have over three-dozen local food purveyors showcasing their most flavorful products in taste-sized portions.
Slow Food San Francisco’s annual Golden Glass is a lively gastronomic and educational event featuring the year's most talked-about international wines complemented by culinary delights from the Bay Area's top restaurants and artisan producers.
Both Wine Pavillion and Slow Food Plaza ticket include 5 food tasting tickets. Additional Food tickets can be purchased at the event or online.
