Wine Enthusiast‘s Toast of the Town event is the exception, combining exceptional and eclectic wine choices with a selection of outstanding restaurants in just the right proportions. Last year’s TotT stands as one of the top wine events I attended in 2009.
Toast of the Town 2010 is coming back to San Francisco’s War Memorial Opera House on April 22, and my mouth is already watering. Top wineries pouring include Archery Summit, Antinori, Beaulieu, Pine Ridge, Graham’s Port, and Dow’s Port. Restaurants serving small dishes include Farallon, The Girl and the Fig, Cliff House, Rose Pistola, and the inimitable House of Chicken and Waffles.
Event runs from 5pm (VIP tickets, $169) or 7pm (standard tickets, $89) to 10pm on April 22, 2010. Early bird discounts are available on both tickets if you purchase before April 1. Space is limited. The event benefits the San Francisco Food Bank.
Get tickets here, and say hi if you see me on the floor!
