Celebrating the 10th anniversary; Wine & Spirits Top 100 Tasting Event honors those wineries from around the world that delivered the best overall performances in W&S tastings throughout the year. Since its inception ten years ago, the event has been produced in San Francisco, with Bay Area chefs and local artisanal purveyors serving signature specialties to complement the premier bottlings of the honored wineries.

This highly anticipated annual event honors the 100 wineries along with Bay Area's New & Notable Restaurants and Artisan Purveyors. The "Wineries of the Year" will be profiled in the Winter issue of Wine & Spirits, available on news stands nationwide on October 15th, 2013.

the mission

Our Top 100 event raises money and awareness for groups that work to protect water resources. Wine is 80 percent water, so in a sense, concern for water purity and conservation is just self-preservation for wine drinkers.

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, our Top 100 event is a benefit for San Francisco Baykeeper, supporting their initiatives that fight water pollution. We hope you will consider contributing to the cause by joining us at the 10th Annual Top 100 event!
