Did you miss last year’s international wine mania that is ~WINE RIOT~? Not to worry, they’ll be returning to the Concourse Exhibition Center Fri-Sat June 7th-8th, pouring more than 250 wines from all over the world. They’ve also added the Bubbly Bar this year, which offers plenty of the sparkling stuff. There are three different events: the opening night on Friday from 7pm-11pm, Riot One on Saturday afternoon from 1pm-5pm, and Riot Two on Saturday evening from 7pm-11pm. They are all intended to be approachable for wine newbies, but also interesting for more experienced drinkers, with seminars and classes for a range of oenophiles. You’ll also find a photo booth, live music, and food trucks on hand to purchase the vittles you’ll need to keep going. Tickets are $60. 635 8th St. at Brannan.
