On Friday and Saturday August 3rd and 4th, the national tour of Wine Riot will come into town for their frenzy of wine tasting fun. They’ll be taking over the Concourse Exhibition Center in SoMa for two days of wine mayhem. Winos in attendance will get access to more than 200 different tastes from more than 40 wineries, and it will all be poured alongside activities like making faces in a photo booth and 20-minute wine classes. There will also be a variety of food trucks offering nibbles to keep you going, and a DJ playing music all night. Worried about keeping track of it all? They have a free app to help you remember the wines you enjoyed so you can find them again later (read: when you’re sober).
