The current schedule for the San Francisco Summer Wine Tasting Series includes the following wine regions:

Sunday, July 26 – Napa Valley
Sunday, August 2 - Sonoma
Sunday, August 9 - Urban Wineries
Sunday, August 16 – Paso Robles & Santa Barbara

San Francisco Summer Wine Tasting Series will run each Sunday from 1:00p-4:30p and tickets for each regional event will be available at the “Upcoming Events” section of the Winery Collective website at for $15 in advance and at the event for $20. Families with children are allowed in the Del Monte Square during the event, but you must be 21 years or older to drink alcohol.
