The San Francisco Vintners Market is the first wine tasting and buying event of its kind --- a farmers market-style shopping experience where wine enthusiasts can try and buy wines from more than 200 wineries. The Vintners Market features top local and boutique producers from Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Mendocino, Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, the Russian River Valley and other wine regions in the state, along with imported wines from around the world. In addition, ticketholders to the Reserve Room will be able to taste high-end wines priced at $50 or more. Cult Lounge tickets also get you access to that even more-exclusive lounge, where you can try wines priced over $100 per bottle. At this event, you'll be able to find favorite new wines by tasting samples, rather than using guesswork from wine reviews, and purchase your new finds on the spot. Learn More

Move over, Napa and Sonoma. Wine producing is making a huge shift from rural wineries to urban producers. For the past five years, wine has been making its way downtown, ditching Napa and taking root in the East Bay. Urban winemakers in Oakland and San Francisco source their fruit from the best vineyards in California and around the globe, turning the grapes into world-class juice in their metropolitan facilities. Not being tied to the land gives these urban artisans the freedom to experiment, producing small batches of lovingly crafted wines that are original, local and affordable. Drink up and indulge your inner oenophile and locavore as our panel of wine wizards explores this growing urban trend.
