We have gone for past 4 years. The reserve room tickets are a great value as you get a better level of wine and get in an hour earlier than with the standard ticket. There are so many wine selections, you can't taste them all!

Large selection of mainly smaller vineyards. A lot to chose from. Most of the wines have to be purchased at the event, as most are not available in standard retail channels..Beverages and More, Safeway, etc.

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...continued

The selection was pretty good. But the crowds were horrendous.

More than 200 wineries offering tastings with a capacity crowd in a huge building (not AT&T Park but perhaps 5-10,000 people). The crowd was generally younger, i.e. 20s and 30s. $20 general admission or $50 deluxe which gets admission at noon...continued

A nice event. Good to be able to buy wines you taste and like.
They have a coat and wine check which is helpful. Parking is a problem in Fort Mason parking lot both Saturday and Sunday, due to food trucks in there on Saturday and Farmer's Market...continued

Good fun if you go with a group of friends. It wasn't too crowded, so we didn't have to wait in line at all for many of the wine stalls. I would recommend eating a big meal before you go though, as there are only one or two food stalls inside the...continued

Good idea that you can taste and buy. Hope you are involved with more that they have (like in the Fall too). There was no specific information re the event since SF Vinters Market website only listed the Fall one.
I didn't realize that Bounty...continued

I had a great time. What a deal! $20 for all the tasting you want to try! TONS of wineries, and most I had never heard of before. Only down side was they needed more than 1 little food stand. I heard they plan to have more next year. Wines...continued

Really liked this event. Lots of very good wines in general admission area mostly from smaller vintners I've never heard of. Many of the sellers were also involved in growing and making the wine, so I could have some interesting technical talks...continued

This event is for wine lovers who want access to the (mostly) small producers in California that you do not know about. Without this event you would not have access to them as many of the wines are 300 cases of less production. It is worth the...continued

This was great fun. For me the only disappointment is regarding my taste buds. After a while they simply stopped cooperating. And with so many fantastic wineries I had to rest my mouth.

The chooses of wineries which participated were super,...continued

Very crowded, 20 something's hipster crowd. Most were oblivious to those around them, would stand around and chat in the front of lines after getting their samples. Definitely need a few more food options and sitting areas would be great, but...continued

We bought the premium "reserve" back room tickets, and were a bit disappointed. First, we arrived 10 minutes after opening, and found we had to wait in line for over 20 minutes in the wind and rain for pre-purchased and reserved tickets. Next, the...continued

We gave up before getting inside. There was no parking anywhere remotely near the event and the line stretched for two blocks. With crowds that large I would imagine that it would be very difficult to get to the individual tastings and near...continued

Getting in was poorly organized but there was such a large selection of wine tasting options that even if you didn't buy a wine you'd certainly get your money's worth from the $25 ticket. It was a little more crowded than I expected and at time...continued

Great chance under one roof to taste so many wines. Will go again next time! We also liked having complimentary tables there too for olive oils, vinegars and chocolates.
