The Golden Glass is a lively gastronomic and educational event featuring national and international wines complemented by culinary delights from the Bay Area’s top restaurants and artisan producers.

Golden Glass is the annual fundraiser for Slow Food San Francisco. Proceeds will benefit key Slow Food San Francisco initiatives, including the School Gardens Initiative and Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste program.

Celebrate the efforts of over 100 wine producers who strive to protect, nurture, and revive the indigenous and classic varieties of their regions. Slow Food will select the wineries based on their philosophy and their respect for the environment in collaboration with local wine importers. The wineries will be clustered in national areas throughout the pavilion to help attendees taste and learn about the regional and terroir nuances directly from the winemakers and proprietors themselves.
To showcase the creative culinary talents of so many of our Bay Area chefs, the Slow Food Plaza will pay homage to the open food tasting markets of Europe. We expect to have more than three-dozen purveyors providing sample-size plates of their signature dishes, charcuterie, cheese, olive oil, seasonal fruit, breads, pastries, and gelato for attendees to savor throughout the afternoon.

Kids Activities (All children over the age of 3 are welcome):

Miraloma Elementary School Food is hosting Food Art:
