Must be 21 years or older to attend Wine and Wishes.

Wine and Wishes highlights extraordinary chefs and winemakers and provides culinary enthusiasts with an exceptional experience. Take it from me the SFFoodMaven, who attended it last year, this event is definitely not to be missed if you can swing it. You can read about last year's event here, but I gotta say, I was pretty blown away by this Epicurean display and if you are even considering going, then I most readily support it! I more than likely will be attending the Tasting only, which was more than enough Food and Wine.
I know this is a pricey event, but if you consider what you are getting, it is certainly well worth it, if not more. Also, I have an insider tip on how to get 10% off for the Tasting, which will then only cost you $135.
Shoot me an email at If you are interested in attending as well, then please do let me know and perhaps we can meet at the Embarcadero BART station to shuttle over.
