NAWBO-SFBA Wine & Cheese Tasting Social Gathering

Needs a location

NAWBO-SFBA will be gathering at The Cheese School of San San Francisco, in the heart of Ghirardelli Square to mix, mingle, savor and celebrate beautiful wines and cheeses and the remarkable women who produce them.

Take in stunning views of the San Francisco Bay as the women of Teneral Cellars and The Cheese School share their stories and their favorite wines and wedges with you!

As you taste your way through delicious flights of wine and cheese, you will gain practical knowledge and learn how to create perfect pairings on your own.

You'll come away with a deeper appreciation of the trailblazing women who have been making wine and cheese throughout history and how we can champion the growth and recognition of all female entrepreneurs in the food and beverage industry, now and in the future.

Hosts: Kiri Fisher, owner of The Cheese School of San Francisco and Jill Osur, owner of Teneral Cellars Wine.
After your tasting experience, network and share ideas on how to support other women business owners and encourage and empower more women to start businesses, in the Bay Area and beyond. In addition, the wines and cheeses you enjoyed in class will be available for purchase. A portion of the profits from all sales will be donated to organizations that support gender and racial equity and provide the opportunities and resources needed for women to thrive!

Sponsored by Chase. Your ticket includes a glass of wine to welcome you into The Cheese School. You'll also enjoy a guided tasting, along with a flight of four wines poured to pair with our featured cheeses and tasty accompaniments to excite your palate! There will be plant based options available, as well.
