SF Chronicle Wine Competition Gains 5,000 Entries

The SFCWC 2011 broke the records with 5,050 entries from 23 states and continues to uphold the title of the "Largest Competition of American Wines in the World." At the recent judging in Cloverdale (Sonoma County), NBC Bay Area's Today in the Bay offered up a chance of a lifetime for two lucky viewers to sit, sip and spit along-side the fifty plus judges as they selected the sweepstake winners for the 2011 competition. Patricia Wilson, executive director for the San Francisco Make-a-Wish Foundation who loves wine and admits to drinking wine "all the time" and Laura Christensen, clinic nurse from Ukiah who loves wine, hunting, fishing and camping, but not in that order. Both women participated enthusiastically and likely entertained the official judges around them. For your chance to taste and judge for yourself from the hundreds of wines being served at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition public tasting held February 19, 2011 at Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion in San Francisco. Unpretentious and fun, this popular event encourages everyone to come together, learn about many new wines and nosh and savory bites along the way. If you really want to attend purchase tickets now …tickets sell out every year!
