SPECIAL EVENT: 2019 Luxury Wine Anniversary Celebration & Scholarship Auction! A Glancy Wine Education Fund Benefit

Event Description

You won't want to miss this year's Luxury Wine Anniversary Celebration & Scholarship Auction the evening of Saturday, November 2nd! Guests will be welcomed by a Luxury Wine Tasting Bazaar featuring some of the finest producers from around the globe, the opening events for San Francisco Wine School’s wacky Somm Service Olympics and a silent auction full of unique wine items and experiences you won't find anywhere else! 

Then, we'll all sit down to the main event: a live 4-course food pairing competition between 2 of the Bay Area's top young sommeliers: Jienna Basaldu of The Morris, San Francisco and Mark Guillaudeu of Commis, Oakland.  This Battle of the Bay will be moderated by VIP judges, Leslie Sbrocco, host of PBS’s hit series, Check Please! and celebrated wine author, Alder Yarrow.  Guests will indulge in the epicurean dining experience created by Chef Danae McLaughlin and Master Sommelier David Glancy as they cast their vote for the best pairings of the night!  They’ll also love the opportunity to bid in a live auction for the ultimate luxury wine lots and experiences and support the next generation of wine professionals!

All event & auction proceeds will benefit the 501c3 qualified Glancy Wine Education Fund, providing scholarships to low income students looking to start or advance a career in wine or hospitality. Learn more, donate or apply.
