Wine & Spirits Magazine will host its 7th annual ~TOP 100 TASTING EVENT~ on Wednesday October 13th, from 6:30pm-8:30pm, at the Galleria at the San Francisco Design Center. The 100 wineries from around the world selected for the Top 100 event have delivered the best overall performances in the magazine’s tastings conducted during the past year.

Also featured at the event will be the magazine’s New & Notable restaurants in the Bay Area, which include Baker & Banker, Barbacco, Comstock Saloon, Diamond Lil, Heirloom Café, Hibiscus, Hog & Rocks, Locanda da Eva, Nombe, and Saison. Each restaurant will serve bites of a signature dish paired with wines featured at the tasting. Additionally, guests will enjoy specialties from local artisanal purveyors, including Hog Island Oysters, Nicasio Valley Cheese, Zoe’s Meats, Socola Chocolate, and Barefoot Coffee Roasters. Oh yeah, and yours truly will have a table at the event, so you can swing by and purchase a signed copy of my book for $17.50!

Event proceeds will benefit San Francisco Baykeeper.

Tickets are $105; $125 VIP (includes early admission at 6pm and a sparkling wine reception), and can be purchased here.

tablehopper is giving away one pair of tickets (two tickets total). All you need to do is forward this week’s tablehopper newsletter to one friend (but even more would be so very fabulous), and add a note to your friend(s) about the event, then Cc: or Bcc: me at luckyme@tablehopper.com so I know you sent it—I promise I won’t use anyone’s email address. The deadline to enter is Sunday September 26th by 11:59pm. I will notify the winner on Monday the 27th. Good luck!
