You don’t have to wait for Friday to celebrate because the 2019 Wine & Spirits Top 100 Tasting is coming to San Francisco this Thursday, October 10th. This annual event showcases Wine & Spirits’ favorite 100 wineries from the last year along with local chefs and artisanal purveyors serving small bites to complement the wines. Penfolds, Marchesi Antinori, Ridge Vineyards, Louis Jadot, Diamond Creek, L’Ecole Nº 41, and Williams Selyem are among the returning awardees for 2019. We have always enjoyed our experiences at this celebration of premium winemaking and we encourage you to join us there.
This year, the Top 100 Tasting takes place between 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm at City View at METREON (135 4th Street, San Francisco). If you move quickly you can still buy tickets for yourself and/or friends. General Admission tickets are $135 each and come with a one-year subscription to Wine & Spirits magazine. Or, you can splurge for a VIP Admission ticket which provides you entrance one hour earlier (at 5:30 pm) for $50 more. Please go here to purchase tickets. If you are a member of the Bay Area food and wine Trade, you may be able to still obtain a discounted Trade ticket.
We suggest you begin your evening at the 2019 Wine & Spirits Top 100 Tasting by exploring Champagnes from wineries such as Bollinger, Bruno Paillard, Krug, and Louis Roederer. Then, compare your favorites with Cava from Pere Ventura and enjoy Oysters from The Oyster Girls between sips. After you’ve sampled oustanding white wines and red wines , you can wrap up your evening with Port from Quinta do Noval, Taylor Fladgate and/or W. & J. Grahams. To go with the Port, you should look for treats from Socola Chocolatier and Recchiuti Confections.
