 "San Francisco Wine School Grand Tasting" of heavenly sips and gourmet bites as you mingle with panelists and instructors, enjoy sabering demonstrations and hilarious service olympics and explore the many unique auction items all benefiting this new scholarship fund!

**Check out the wine list for the Global Grand Tasting!**

While our 5 year journey to becoming the largest wine school in the country has been filled with excitement and adventure, November 5th marks the very special 1-year anniversary of the grand opening of our beautiful Wine Education & Events Center in South San Francisco and the perfect occasion to launch the Glancy Wine Education Fund.  
 
At San Francisco Wine School, we believe that every motivated and engaged student should have access to high quality, professional education in their trade. Since our inception in 2011, we have been providing tuition assistance and internship programs to worthy students interested in starting or advancing their career in the wine industry.  The launch of the Glancy Wine Education Fund will allow us to greatly expand our ability to provide financial assistance to those in need. All event profits and auction proceeds will go towards establishing this important fund. Thank you for your support and participation! We're excited to celebrate with you!
