The San Francisco Vintners Market’s “Harvest in the City” is timed right before the holidays, offering the perfect stop for those provisions delightfully necessary in the coming months.
"Don't believe them when they tell you the parking lot is full. The first 30 minutes are free, so drive around and look for a spot. "
The original farmer’s market for wineries, the market brings to the historic Fort Mason Center top local and boutique producers from Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and the Russian River Valley, plus wines by imported labels. You’ll see producers both large, like Cameron Hughes and Bounty Hunter, and small, like Courtesan and La Jota Vineyards.
To help you navigate it all, we have put together a two-day pass for Gilt City members, unavailable anywhere else. After all, there are 150 wineries represented at the festival, and barrel tastings, rare vintages and new releases will be flowing.
Tasting tip: arrive an hour early, at noon. (It’s always happy hour somewhere.) And make sure there’s room in your car because you can buy everything you like on the spot.
