I loved this event and I will certainly go again next year. Very well done. Tons of wine to taste and it really is limitless. The event people must have read the reviews from last year because this time they provided a nice keepsake wine glass...continued

GREAT event. So many winemakers! Unlimited tastings. Great wines, great crowd (but not too crowded). Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves...It was so much fun. There was also free Smart Water and cheese/crackers.

Exceeded my expectations....continued

Pretty great. Lots of wineries. The right amount of people, so the lines weren't too opressive.

It was great, easy to check in while others had to wait in line. There were so many wineries and everyone was very friendly. Found a few new wines plus places to visit.

This event was a blast! My boyfriend and I just moved to SF, so this was a great way for us to explore our new city. The reason I gave it 4 stars is that it was ridiculously packed, but once we had a few sips of wine, we went with the flow! We...continued

A little overwhelming with so many winemakers to sample from, but a lot of fun. More food needs to be provided in the future as well as sharper discounts for purchases made during the event. Overall it was fun and worth admission though.

I have been to many Vintner's Markets at Fort Mason in the past and they have been great. I went this Saturday, 4/9, and was disappointed for two reasons. First, it was WAY too crowded. There were moments where I could barely move because the...continued

Only big complaint - plastic wine glasses. They make the wine taste differently - in my opinion.

This was a great venue to showcase the wines of small wineries. We had a great time and purchased some great win. I'm deducting one star as tasting $50+ bottles of wine in a reserve tasting with cheap thick glasses was not appropriate given the...continued
