Family Winemakers of California will hold its 21st annual wine tasting on Sunday and Monday, Aug. 21 (open to consumers and trade) and 22 (trade only). We need lots of volunteers! You get to attend the tasting for free on both days AND you get a fancy T-shirt!
NOTE that some shifts have been filled so they are no longer shown on the schedule above. NOTE that we're listing time ranges, NOT shift times; your assigned shift will not exceed 3-1/4 hours and you will be able to attend the tasting both on the day you're working and the day you're not. Please fill out one form per person. To help us with scheduling, check as many shifts -- in our new system, "tickets"! -- as possible; we’ll do our best to accommodate you but reserve the right to put you where we need you. You are not confirmed for a volunteer shift until you have been assigned one via email correspondence from us. When you click on "Register" we will collect needed information from you. Janett Peace, after so many years communicating with our volunteers, has gone on to other projects. If you have questions, please contact our NEW volunteer coordinator, Tony Williams, firstname.lastname@example.org (already known to some of you as the unflappable, always helpful guy at our Computer Station!).
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!
