This year we decided to pour at the Family Winemakers of California tasting at Fort Mason in San Francisco.
This was a two-day event, 1-6 PM each day. That's a long time to be standing on your feet on an unyielding concrete floor!
The event was primarily for the Trade (distributors, restaurants, retail shops, wine bars), but there was a 3-hour Consumer segment.
Attendance was up considerably this year. Approximately 1,700 of the trade attended on both Sunday and Monday! The consumer portion had about 700 attendees, also up from last year.
Since we're relatively new and unknown, it gave us a great opportunity to let people learn about us and for us to meet those in the trade.

We'll try to use this blog and Facebook more to let people know when our tastings are going to occur. Let us know if you have any ideas.
