San Francisco 2017

Matter of Taste
03 March 2018
The City Club San Francisco
155 Sansome St

Due to the Northern California wildfires, it is with heavy heart that we inform you of our need to postpone our November San Francisco Matter of Taste event. The devastation and loss for Northern California’s wine country last week due to wildfires throughout Napa and Sonoma counties are beyond comparison within our wine world. On October 9th, the Governor of California declared a state of emergency. More than 200,000 acres have burned, 5,700 homes and structures have been destroyed and nearly 75,000 people evacuated. And with the fires still raging in parts of the area, it is not over yet. Authorities believe poor air quality due to smoke will continue in the Bay Area, including San Francisco, for the next few weeks. Taking all these factors beyond our control into account, we believe there could not be a worse time to host an event of this nature than in early November and that our only option is to postpone.


We are currently in discussions with venues to find an alternative date within the first quarter of 2018. All Master Classes, Walkabout components, and Dinners will remain the same but postponed to a later date to be confirmed 10/20/17

Robert Parker Wine Advocate presents: Matter of Taste San Francisco


Matter of Taste returns to San Francisco on the heels of the sold-out events in Zurich and London earlier this year. As part of the continuing global series of exclusive events for members and guests, Matter of Taste San Francisco will be one to remember for the ages.


The event will feature over 150 outstanding wines, each rated 90 or more points by Robert Parker Wine Advocate. This year’s theme will be Right-Bank Bordeaux-inspired wines and global sparkling wines.


A progression of exceptional wine dinners will take place throughout the city the week of October 30th, 2017. Then, join us for a grand walk-around tasting and a series of master classes highlighting these great wines on Saturday, November 4th at the elegant City Club of San Francisco. A Grande Finale Dinner that evening will conclude this extraordinary week, with guests sharing a table with a noted winemaker, and have the rare opportunity to hear how great wines are crafted in an entertaining, social setting.


You won’t want to miss this very special event!
