It’s all about the WINE…many wineries offer “futures” on their barrel samples. This is a chance to purchase wine now, often at a discount, then come back to the winery when the wine is bottled, typically 12-18 months from now. Many wines are so limited, buying futures is your only chance to purchase them.
Bring your friends and family for a relaxing afternoon of great wine and live music (soulful oldies) with Karl Larson on our patio (weather permitting)! Complimentary event. Deli items available for purchase.
Fred Dame, Steven Spurrier and Jancis Robinson meet in Paris to drink the rarest bottles of their careers, while seven of the best blind tasters in the world gather in NYC to settle an age-old argument – can the world’s finest Pinot Noirs stand up to the great Burgundies of France? The final selections stun the table. Master Sommelier Dustin Wilson brings the winning wines to Jancis, Steven and Fred in Paris. Like the 1976 Judgment of Paris, could the results have the same revolutionary effect and be the next ‘vinous shot’ heard round the world?

At the San Diego Bay Wine + Food Festival you will learn how a holistic approach to farming along with biodiversity are crucial components to healthy and sustainable vineyards that will grow and produce for 60+ years, in this Master Class led by Ivo Jeramaz. You will also see how a myriad of living organisms work together to circumvent one of the biggest challenges in grape growing – preventing diseases and maintaining soil health.
The competition will focus exclusively on the needs of on premise establishments such as bars, restaurants, lounges and clubs, making this competition fundamentally different from any other wine competition within the U.S.
The goal of the Sommeliers Choice Awards is simple: to provide experienced on premise buyers and sommeliers a valuable benchmark for understanding which wines would make a compelling addition to a wine list.
Judging Date: May 19-20, 2019
