SF Fall Fest, September 24th, San Francisco

fallfest_logo.jpgI know, I know. There are a lot more wine events getting posted here on Vinography than wine reviews this week. But can I help it if somehow September is the month that everyone does wine whatever?

One of the events happening in San Francisco that I can wholeheartedly endorse and recommend attending is SF Fallfest. The first event last year was one of the better wine and food events of its type that I had ever been to, in particular because either through happenstance, or through deliberate action on the part of the organizers, most of the wineries represented were very small producers, many of which I had not heard of.

The food, in addition to the wine, was quite good, and while I was too busy tasting wines to check out the cooking demonstrations, they looked pretty darn cool. With any luck, we'll get another sunny day like last year and this will be the event to beat on Saturday the 24th. Don't forget that the proceeds go to the San Francisco Chapter of Meals on Wheels.

Saturday, September 24
Noon to 4 p.m.
Justin Herman Plaza at Embarcadero Center
At the end of Market Street
San Francisco's Waterfront District

Tickets are $75, or $125 for VIP with wine tasting seminar included. They can be purchased online.
