On Tuesday, October 20, 2015 from 6:30-8:30pm at City View at the Metreon in San Francisco and sponsored by Stölzle and Pack n’ Ship Direct, the tasting event will feature delicacies, including fresh oysters, local cheeses, and an array of artisan specialties, from the Bay Area’s ‘New & Notable’ restaurants and artisan purveyors.
This year, for the 12th anniversary, the Top 100 Tasting Event honors wineries from around the world that delivered the best overall performances in Wine & Spirits tastings throughout the year. Since the creation of the event 11 years ago, it has been hosted in San Francisco, with Bay Area chefs and local purveyors serving signature creations to complement the premier bottlings of the honored wineries.
The Top 100 event raises money and awareness for groups that work to protect water resources, which is a great concern for California today. Because wine is 80 percent water, concern for water purity and conservation is just self-preservation for wine drinkers. This event benefits the San Francisco Baykeeper in support of their initiatives that fight water pollution.
Tickets for the Wine & Spirits Top 100 Tasting event can be purchased here.
