Family Winemakers of California

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 375 members today and many of them pour at one or all of our tastings: Bay Area, Del Mar and Pasadena.  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 ... Great Wine a Family Tradition!
