Taste of Mendocino 2012 - Trade and Media Tasting
Monday, June 11, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
We're excited to announce the 2012 date for Taste of Mendocino - Monday June 11 at Terra in San Francisco, CA. There will be an exclusive Trade & Media tasting from 2-5 pm to bring a sampling of the area right to wine buyers and distributors, sommeliers, wine directors, travel planners, and media. The event aims to educate and inspire wine enthusiasts and visitors to come up to one of California’s most beautiful, and not so remote, destinations. Trade and media are also invited to attend the invited public hours of the event from 5-7p.m.
Mendocino County is known as the place where some of the pioneers of the organic food and wine movement hang their hats and park their trucks. Inspired by a love of the land and a commitment to environmental stewardship, it’s a place abundant in wine makers (including Frey Vineyards, the first family farm to be certified Biodynamic®), organic breweries (Ukiah Brewing Company), craft distillers (Germain-Robin), artisan producers (like Shamrock Artisan Goat Cheese and Oliveto del Vecchio), famous grassfed beef ranchers (Magruder Ranch’s biggest client is Chez Panisse) and many creative artists and entrepreneurs.
The Mendo vibe will be kicking at Terra. Vendors will include over 60 wineries, organic beer, artisan olive oil, preserves, cheese and grassfed beef and lamb producers as well as favorite dishes from local restaurants. A large contingency of local artists, including the popular Flynn Flying Circus and other diversions and attractions will be there to remind you that Mendocino County is an amazing destination only 1.5 hours from the Bay.
Hosted by the Mendocino Winegrape and Wine Commission in partnership with Visit Mendocino County, this unified event will encompass the promotion of regional producers and diversions as well as projects and educational elements that highlight the County's bounty.
