Time for Wine! The 2018 Oakland Wine Festival
Wine: it is a constant feature of this blog. We love it, and we suspect that you might feel the same way. One of the greatest things about the Bay Area is its proximity to some of the best vineyards in this hemisphere. With Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley so close at hand, the finest wines crafted by some of the finest vintners is available to us. With such a plethora of marvelous wine choices, the difficulty comes in trying to narrow down the search for the wine that is truly your perfect palate match. This is why events such as the 2018 Oakland Wine Festival are so essential: they give you the opportunity to experience many different wines at a fraction of the cost it would take to purchase that many bottles.
But the Oakland Wine Festival is so much more…
With the price of your ticket, you will be whisked away into the wonderful world of wine. Well over 100 different vintages will be on hand, and they come from areas much further afield than California. Reds from Spain! Whites from France! How about a Riesling from Germany? It will all be there for you.
And there’s more! Upwards of 220 wine experts, makers, winery owners, sommeliers, and other high-priests of the wine industry will be milling about, brushing elbows and talking shop around you. Are there questions you have always wanted to ask about wine? Now’s the time to get the answers!
To top it all off, your ticket will allow you the chance to participate in a winemaker lunch and a winemaker dinner. Want more? How about the rare chance to participate in a double-blind wine tasting alongside some of the most renowned names in the wine business? The 2018 Best of Show wine has yet to be selected, and you could be one of those who helps crown the new queen of the Oakland Wine Festival!
