There is still time to join the drawing today by purchasing tickets for Thursday's California Historic Wineries. Those who prepay are eligible to win tickets for WORDUP happening at Ft. Mason tomorrow from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

As a special inducement to have more members sign up and pay in advance for the Thursday gathering, thanks to our friend Dick Keenan owner of Kick Vineyards and Carica Winery, I am holding a drawing for three comp tickets, worth $50 each, to WORDUP occurring on Sunday (see below) to include only those who prepay for the tasting program on 2.25, this coming Thursday (each payee will choose a three number code to go into an electronic hat). But you must make a credit or debit card payment via our PayPal connection by Saturday at noon to be eligible for the drawing (those who have already paid are included in the drawing)

There are quite a lot of wine events happening this weekend, including the humongous Chronicle competition tasting at Ft. Mason. Like ZAP, the Chronicle event is a mob scene, making it difficult to enjoy the outing IMO. Which is why I promoted Dark and Delicious the night before. Such tastings are much more fun because the smaller size and lack of jossling and the roar of the crowd allows you to chat with the vintner and among yourselves.

There is another event on Sunday that shares the ingredients of a great group tasting: a smaller number of wineries but still a broad range, high quality wines most in very limited production, nifty nibbles and a much smaller attendee list allowing conversation among all participants. I am refering to WORDUP in which local winemakers pour support for San Francisco Neighborhood Library Campaign--a most worthwhile cause.

Even if you don't participate in the drawing by paying in advance for the historic wineries tasting you should consider attending the WORDUP on your own. You'll meet artisan winemakers who happen to reside in the Richmond, Presidio, Marina, Excelsior and more, enjoy hand-crafted wines and purchase bottled wines at special prices to support the Campaign. Enjoy delicious hors d?oeuvres and unique wine-related silent auction items up for bid. This also takes place at Ft. Mason, but not at one of the finger piers; instead in the Golden Gate Room at the entrance to the lower area from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Wineries pouring include:

AP Vin
August West
Mojon's Bench
Plump jack
Sol Rouge
Sutton Cellars
Uvaggio di Giacomo and Ici La bas
And more?
