San Francisco Vintners Market™ at Fort Mason Nov. 4-5 Supports North Bay Fire Relief


50% of Sunday Ticket Sales Dedicated to the Redwood Credit Union Community Fund™

San Francisco, CA – Oct. – At the upcoming San Francisco Vintners Market™ more than 100 Northern California wineries will offer their wines for taste and sale at the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion, Saturday and Sunday Nov. 4-5. This unique, bi-annual “farmer’s market” devoted exclusively to wine, is hosting its 16th event welcoming wine lovers from the San Francisco Bay area, while supporting those in the community who have been touched by the recent wildfires.

“We extend our heartfelt sympathy and thoughts to all our friends and colleagues in wine country who have been affected by these terrible fires,” said San Francisco Vintners Market’s Cornelius Geary.

San Francisco Vintners Market™ will donate 50 percent of ongoing Sunday ticket sales (Nov. 5) to the Redwood Credit Union Community Fund™ – North Bay Fire Relief, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. “To get the ball rolling, we have made an initial donation of $1,000 to the fund,” he said.

The most important way to support winemakers throughout the ongoing recovery process is to buy their wine. In keeping with the “try and buy” concept of the event, where participating wineries sell direct to consumer, 100 percent of all wine sales accrue directly to the selling winery.

Producers large and small need our support during these difficult times. Winemakers work hard year-round, and need to market and sell. Many wineries receive a large percentage of their Holiday sales beginning with this annual November event. “We hope to outperform past events and look for San Francisco’s wine fans and aficionados to come out strong,” Geary said.

“We are united to help those impacted. Despite the devastation, the wineries will be there for us. Let’s be there for them.”

San Francisco Vintners Market™ has been supporting boutique, family-owned and cult wine producers since 2009 and led the way for winemakers to connect with wine lovers and sell direct to consumer and trade buyers. The fun-filled event hosts a broad selection of boutique wines from the leading California and global wine regions in an entertaining and jam-packed weekend of wine tasting, wine buying and merry making all located at the historic Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion.
