For the past 16 vintages, we’ve celebrated the year’s most exemplary wineries at our San Francisco Top 100 Tasting. It’s an evening of extraordinary wine and food, offering wine discoveries to amateurs and industry pros alike. Alder Yarrow of Vinography describes the W&S Top 100 as “One of the best tastings all year in San Francisco.” Now, New Yorkers can explore this compelling assembly of great wines from around the world and meet the people who make them.
Top 100 San Francisco 2019
The wineries featured at the Top100 are those that performed best overall in our tastings, earning multiple recommendations from our panels and high scores from our critics. Those tastings are rigorous and built for transparency, as we assess more than 11,000 wines through blind tastings with high-level sommeliers and retailers and a secondary, in-depth examination by our regional critic. At the Top 100, you’ll taste the top-scoring wines from each winery.
The symposium is not only a tasting but also an opportunity to share ideas with these talented winemakers and our critics, in discussions at the Critic’s Bar and more in-depth regional explorations. Talk with our critics about their major discoveries this tasting year, speak with growers about their decisions behind the making of these top wines and experience a range of great wine regions without leaving the city. We welcome you to join the discussion on January 14, 2020 at Union Park Events.
