San Francisco Vintners Market Returns to Fort Mason Center for Two 2017 “Try and Buy” Events


Since 2010, SF Vintners Market has hosted over 95,000 wine consumers and 2,000 wineries that have collectively generated over $6,000,000 in event weekend winery direct sales.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, February 6, 2017 – San Francisco Vintners Market returns to Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion for two 2017 events, March 11th-12th and November 4th-5th.

Now in it’s 8th year, the spring San Francisco Vintners Market will be held on March 11th-12th. Wineries interested in selling their wine direct-to-consumer at the event can find more information and register at www.sfvintnersmarket.com or by contacting [email protected] or via phone at 415-713-5331.

The twice-per-year, one-of-a-kind farmers market has allowed wineries to “Bring the tasting room to the city” where they can meet, market to, and sell their wine and wine club memberships to thousands of wine lovers on the lookout for the wines that they will be drinking for decades to come.

Participating wineries have the option to present their wines in three distinct retail spaces, the Cult Room, where wines $100 per bottle or higher are marketed and sold, the Reserve Room, where wines $50-$99 are marketed and sold and the Main Room where wines $49 and below are marketed and sold.

New Perks For 2017:

  • Wine classes: Wine education classes for both consumers and the trade
  • Winery Association group discounts: Get together with ten or more wineries for your own pavilion with custom branding and special mention in all marketing
  • Sales boost: Wineries push Wine Club Memberships and Post-Event order shipping to streamline buying. Sales made while the customers are in good spirits!

More fun facts for wineries looking to grow their customer base:

  • 2,000+ new consumer attendees come to each event
  • 400+ wine buyers from on-and-off premise attend looking for new products
  • More than $500,000+ in winery retail sales during the event weekend (through Square app alone)
  • SF Vintners Market has been extraordinarily effective in creating an approachable forum for new, impressionable wine enthusiasts looking to cultivate their palates and stock their wine cabinets and cellars
