Saturday November 20, 2010 / All Day (1:00pm - 5:00pm)San Francisco Vintners Market
How was your experience?
I liked the opportunity to meet small winemakers, and see a large selection of wines, and in a good price range. Getting my own glass and bag was helpful. I would have appreciated a list of the winemakers in attendance, w/ a map of their location in the building and a description of their offerings. The event was way too crowded (oversold?) and noisy (cavernous building w/ no acoustic padding) for my taste - although if you are looking for a "party" atmosphere, you might like it. I arrived around 2:30 pm (mid-event), and there was a huge line of ticket holders outside to enter the building - thank goodness the huge rain storm did not start until later - I think it took over 30 minutes in line just to get to the front door.
