Organic Wine Tasting and Panel at SF Ferry Plaza Wine Merchants with CAFF: Monday, Feb. 22

Next Monday in downtown San Francisco, the Community Alliance of Family Farmers (CAFF) is putting on a panel discussion "How Green Is Your Wine" focusing on dry farmed and/or organic or Biodynamic vintners.

Organic and Biodynamic pioneer Paul Dolan will be moderating a panel of four leading vintners, including:

• Jason Haas from Tablas Creek Vineyard in Paso Robles, makers of fine Rhone wines from organic vines

• David Gates from Ridge Vineyards, whose Sonoma and Cupertino estate vineyards have recently become certified organic (or will be later this year); the winery's known for its outstanding Cabernet and its old vine Zinfandels
• Boutique producers Steve Gliessman and Roberta Jaffe of Condor's Hope, which has newly certified organic vineyards in Santa Barbara County

All of the above vintners have certified organic vines.

In addition, Stu Smith from Smith-Madrone in Napa, will also be a panelist.

After the panel you can enjoy small bites and a wine tasting from the panelists's vineyards as well as wines from these organic producers: AmByth, DaVero, Frog's Leap, Porter Creek, Quivira and Preston Farm & Winery.

The event is $20 and tickets can be reserved here.

This is a rare chance to hear from organic producers in San Francisco. Hope you can make it. See you there!
