San Francisco is known for having sensational restaurants, and is also a short trip away from Wine Country. The combination of those two things makes up one of the signature events of Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area.
This year’s Wine and Wishes, the 15th annual event, is Saturday, Feb. 20 at the San Francisco Design Center Galleria in SoMa. The event helps more children with life-threatening medical conditions in the Bay Area have their wishes granted. Wine and Wishes is the perfect evening to have a great time while supporting an even better cause!
Enjoy Gourmet Tastings
The evening starts at 4:30 p.m. with the Gourmet Food and Wine Tasting. The tasting allows you to sample food from more than 50 of the best local restaurants and wineries. This is a great opportunity to try foods from restaurants you’ve never been to before and maybe even find new favorites. You can see a full list of the participating restaurants here.
In addition to sampling delicious food and wine, the tasting includes a silent auction. The auction features wine lots, unique items and exciting experiences. Tickets for the Gourmet Food and Wine Tasting are $150.
Experience A Gourmet Meal
If you’d like more than just a taste of some of the best food and wine San Francisco has to offer, attending the Winemaker Dinner may be the way to go. This year’s dinner will be a four-course brasserie-style menu prepared by French and American chefs and served with wine from some of the best California and French winemakers.
Dinner starts at 7:30 p.m. and goes until 10:30. Buying a dinner ticket also allows you to attend the tasting that takes place earlier in the evening. Standard dinner tickets are $500 each and VIP tickets, which include exclusive access to a VIP area and special tastings, are $1,000 each. If you have a large party, a table of 10 might be your best fit for the dinner. Standard dinner tables for 10 are $5,000 each and VIP dinner tables for 10 are $10,000 each. All Winemaker Dinner tickets include admission to the Gourmet Tasting.
Help Wish Kids At Wine And Wishes
Wine and Wishes is a wonderful way to experience some of the best San Francisco has to offer, but at the core of the event is raising funds to grant more wishes for local kids and teens who are battling life-threatening medical conditions.
