San Francisco: Summer Down Under: The Wines of Australia & New Zealand 2013

While San Francisco is in mid-winter, we can pretend we're lounging in southern hemisphere heat on February 7th. Uncorked Events will transport you to the warm beaches of Australia & the fertile wine country of New Zealand.

They Do It Better Down Under
We won't have shrimp on the barbi or Men at Work performing (though you never know with us), but we will introduce you to over 150 of the best wines from Australia & New Zealand. And because one can't live on wine alone, we'll have beer tasting stations featuring some of the best brews from each country.

No Vegemite, Just Great Wine
These two countries represent extraordinary quality to value wines and are always crowd pleasers. You will try a wide variety of wines including an array of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling from Australia. On the New Zealand side, you'll sample Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Bordeaux blends. Did you also know that Australia makes world-class dessert wines? Or that Tasmania is home to great sparkling wine?

World-Class Wineries
You will have the unique opportunity to sample wines from many prestigious producers including: Amisfield, Brokenwood, Cloudy Bay, Craggy Range, d'Arenberg, Elderton, Giant Steps, Jancz, Henschke, Hewitson, Jim Barry, Kilikanoon, Leeuwin Estate, Mohua, Penley, Peter Lehmann, Plantagenet, Quartz Reef, Robert Oatley, 
Spy Valley, St. Hallett, Trevor Jones, Two Hands, Vasse Felix 
*(wineries subject to change, but rest assured, all wineries will be amazing) 

A Classic Venue
The General's Residence atop Fort Mason sets an appropriately beautiful stage for these delicious and fun-loving wines. Come experience the historical splendor of this San Francisco institution overlooking Aquatic Park. And while the Aussies & Kiwis may be a pretty laid back bunch, they will knock your socks off with the quality, precision and care of their wine making.

The Extras
Rounding out the night will be an incredible gourmet cheese and charcuterie spread and hearty hors d'oeuvres from A.G. Ferrari and the smooth sounds of 
DJ Sol spinning Aussie & Kiwi pop classics. 

Do not miss this very special mid-winter wine celebration and be sure to purchase your tickets early to save a few dollars and ensure a ticket before we sell out.

The VIP Option
This year we’re adding a VIP preview entry option to enter a full hour before the main event at 5:30pm with exclusive access to rare library and extremely limited production reserve wines at each table.
