On February 17th, the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition will celebrate its 18-year anniversary as the largest competition of American wines in the world. At the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, wine enthusiasts will enjoy sampling award winning wines from all across the country at the competition’s popular Public Tasting. The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Public Tasting will take place Saturday, February 17th, 2018 from 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco.
Year after year, the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (SFCWC) grows more competitive and more prestigious, drawing a huge number of entries from some of the finest wineries across the nation. SFCWC award-winners, especially the Sweepstakes and Best of Class winners, are widely regarded as among the best wines in America. Due to the SFCWC’s size and the expertise of the judging panel, this competition is often considered the ultimate barometer for wine consumers to select and measure wine.
As American wines continue to grow more refined, so do wine consumers. As a result, the public tasting event is always a highly anticipated event for wine lovers, many of whom come to the tasting with very educated palates. At the public tasting, guests come together to learn even more about wines, while gourmet food purveyors offer delectable food samples that pair perfectly with the award winning selections. The public tasting--traditionally a sellout event--also features KGO Radio show hosts, writers from the San Francisco Chronicle and notable wine industry leaders.
