On December 6th, Gary Vaynerchuk of WLTV will attend the 2nd Annual Fort Mason Tasting Event in San Francisco. The public gathering will take place at the Golden Gate Room and be from 6pm to midnight. The event promises to be educational for the newbie as well as for the skilled palate. And just plain fun. Gary is well-known for his boundless energy and approachable, good nature.
In the interests of ‘full disclosure’ I must say that two writers for this space are the hosts. Both Brandon and I threw the first wildly successful Fort Mason event well over a year ago, long before Reign of Terroir was a twinkle in my eye. We very much enjoyed his refreshing presence as did the 120 souls in attendance. We pledged then and there to host another for our good friend.
This tasting differs from most in that the wines are provided by the guests themselves. It is humbly requested that all who attend bring a bottle to share. If there is a tasting theme it is loosely built around organic and biodynamic wines. But no wine will be turned away!
Because all sign-up monies are plowed back into the evening it is hoped our budget will be sufficient to provide plenty of simple wine-pairing foods. But please bring a little something to share!
Stemware will be provided.
Hope to see you there!

One word of caution! Gary will be attending Sunday’s football game between the Jets and the 49ers at Candlestick Park. For reasons completely unfathomable to this writer, it is Gary’s well-known ambition to one day own the New York Jets.
So to all Niner fans attending Dec. 6ths Fort Mason Tasting, please wear the team colors!
