    A credit will be granted for use in a future quarter if the member cancels their attendance.  

    Prior to the taste-off @ 6:00 p.m., we will attend a presentation on the cultural meaning of San Francisco architecture given by SF Chronicle Urban Design Critic John King at the California Historical Society next door. King will highlight structures from his current book that tell the story of San Francisco through architecture, embodying the politics, design fads, and shifting values of the eras in which they were conceived. The journalist will show us how to read the structures around us as signposts and translations for the story of a multilayered and ever-changing city. Reserve a seat here:  

    We return to our pop up taste off format pitting the palates of our a members against the pros who recently awarded medals for the Mendocino County Fair

    Attendees act as a people's tasting panel composed of those who buy their wines for dinner and special occasions, not the professionals who receive samples and tend to seek other qualities, like complexity and balance in wines besides how delicious they are.  The Best of Tasting will go into our buying club selection.

    Attendees can pair the wines with munchies purchased at any of the restaurants in the Metreon food court

    McFadden Farms
    McFadden Vineyard has been family owned and operated since 1970 in Potter Valley. We began producing our wine in 2003. The hot days and cool nights of Potter Valley give our wines exceptional character and flavor; and meticulous care of the soil enables us to produce top quality grapes year after year.
