This event is now sold out.

The 13th Annual Institute of Masters of Wine Champagne Tasting will be held at the Hyatt Centric Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco on Monday 25 September 2017.

The 1300 to 1500 seated tasting of 2006 vintage selections is a wonderful prelude to the evening Grand Walk-Around tasting which is held in two sessions: 1600 to 1800 and 1830 to 2030.

This event is one of the largest and most prestigious tastings of top quality champagne in North America. The seated afternoon event will be led by Charles Curtis MW and Tim Marson MW and will feature curated flights of 2006 vintage selections, while the walk-around tastings will include many exceptional champagnes, both vintage and non-vintage, organized by style: non-dosé, brut, dosé, blanc de blancs/noirs, rosé, etc.

Please email Nancy Johnson if you would like to be added to the waiting list for the 1830 to 2030 Walk-Around Tasting.

Digital lists of the champagne selections will be emailed one week prior to the event. Attendees should kindly remember to avoid wearing perfume or other heavily-scented lotions.
