Uncorked! Wine Festival at Ghirardelli Square

This is a wine tasting like no other that I’ve attended in San Francisco, with a very festive “street faire” feeling throughout the entire event.

Perhaps that’s because it’s happening in San Francisco’s highly visible Ghirardelli Square, where people come from all around the world. Attendees may not have known about the event prior to, but they become instantly attracted by its potential simply because they’re visiting this area. Others return because it’s a great way to taste lots of California wine without have to travel any further than their own back yard.

All of this adds to an international feeling. I’ve enjoyed the diversity in the past, and look forward to another “San Francisco Day.” (This atmosphere is one of the reasons I moved from Maine to California.)

It’s right in Ghirardelli Street Square. What could be more fun?

I’ve poured at this one in the past, and am eager to return. My crew and I will be pouring with and for (alphabetically) Alhona Vineyards, Big House wines, Black Coyote Chateau, and Foppiano Vineyards.
