I couldn't have asked for a better experience planning, then pulling off a fantastic surprise private dinner for my wife’s birthday. The SFWS team asked thoughtful questions about the evening's goals and her tastes, then worked with me to put together a wonderful menu with excellent wine pairings that also fit within my budget. Their team was extremely knowledgeable, fun and enthusiastic about not only the delicious food and wine, but also about making sure the guests had a wonderful evening. Our group was very curious and enjoyed the time David spent explaining the food, wine and rationale behind each pairing. The team also knew just when to "be invisible” during our toasts and stories. The event ran long, but the team continued to support us with good cheer until the last guest departed. All in all, it was an extremely well executed and memorable evening. I couldn't more strongly recommend a private event at SFWS.

Erin Tselenchuk, Watermark

We had an incredible event, with many thanks to the pre-planning process. The day of was seamlessly executed by your entire team. The feedback on all the tasting staff was great - knowledgeable, passionate about wine and their work, and approachable (very important). Thank you to David for being actively involved, sharing about the SFWS and the wine/bites pairings (going above and beyond to customize it), and the waitstaff. Many kudos to the chef for her incredible skill and selection of items (the artichoke "mock" cake was brilliant and favorite of many). And even down to the end, Wilbert who helped us load items downstairs. We look forward to many more events together, and hopefully a partnership.

Anat Waxman, Intel

Our instructor had lots of experience regarding the world of wine, i.e.: talking and explaining about wine, telling stories, he knows where to put the focus, where to move on, how to run the event smoothly and most important he didn't make us feel clueless about wine. he was waking us hand by hand and showed us few wine secrets we will use from now on. He was funny and i was surprised he did not hard stop after 1.5 hours but gave us 10-15 min extra for q&a. i would recommend him to every event!

Adriana Hemzacek, Commuter Rail Coalition

I received such amazing feedback all day yesterday. Your team was so professional and everyone called the night, elegant and well-thought out.

Vas Kiniris, SF Council of Dist Merchants Assoc

I received lots of compliments from the guests saying they really loved the innovative social engagement and educational component of the virtual event. David’s energy also kept the experience lively and fun!
