Family Winemakers of California -- San Francisco 2012
Sunday, September 9, 2012 from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, United States
Want to know -- and taste -- the well-known and the soon-to-be known in California wines? You've come to the right place. The Family Winemakers tasting -- this is our 22nd anniversary! -- includes tiny wineries you've never heard of, favorites you know and love, varietals you want to discover ... in short, the vast and exhilirating world of wine in California, 2012. It's a once-a-year extravaganza where you can tour and taste the world of California wine. Your ticket includes: unlimited access to 250 wineries from 30+ California appellations pouring over 50 varietals and 750 different wines; commemorative wine glass; a great variety of cheeses; on site creperie. Many wineries will be offering special pricing on select wines. FOR OUR SECOND YEAR -- TASTE & TAKE! Take home the wines you love (participating wineries identified on site).
This is the most comprehensive tasting of California wines in the world -- the largest number of wineries; an enormous range of varietals; wine growing appellations from all over the state. This is a Family Winemakers tasting, which means that many of the wineries are small (under 5000 cases), have limited marketing outreach, and will be represented by family members. Over 30 wineries in this year's tasting will be pouring with us for the first time, giving you a taste of the new kids on the block. You can sample new releases from your classic favorites and from wineries just selling their first vintages. Check out varietals you've never heard of (Vermentino? Touriga?) or your best-loved Cabs and Chardonnays. This well-respected tasting is a once-a-year opportunity to tour and taste California's wine country under one (very large) roof.
NEW! iSipLounge features Sommelier Courtney Cochran leading a stand-up tasting of 8 varietals, 4 reds and 4 whites. Verdelho, Grenache, Tempranillo -- well, you get the idea. Your ticket admits you to the Lounge as well as the tasting at any time between 3:00 and 6:00. Mini-crepes and cheeses served to pair with the wines.

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.
Family Winemakers ... Taste California!
