The month of May is the kickoff of festival season! Two upcoming fabulous wine festivals around the Bay particularly peak our interest. No, it is not just because we provide Bay Area residents with ferry service to these particular places (although that certainly is a plus!) but both support important community causes. Besides experiencing the delight of sampling tasty food and wine, good karma points for all who attend!
Our first festival favorite, the Angel Island Wine Festival, is occurring on May 1, 2010 from 12:00pm – 3:30 pm. In an effort to help save Angel Island from closure due to the state budget deficit, Vino Moda is holding a Wine Festival right on the Island. Their goal is to reintroduce the natural beauty and historical significance of Angel Island, while attracting more locals and visitors from abroad.

Our next festival favorite is the 27th annual Tiburon Wine Festival. On May 15, 2010 from 1:00 – 4:00pm, visitors can experience wine tastings from world-renowned wineries, delicious food and live entertainment. Proceeds go to funding Tiburon Chamber community activities and beautification projects. Tickets are available by advance purchase only, so visit http://www.tiburonwinefestival.org/ to get yours today!
Tickets to both these events are selling fast, so don’t miss out! What better way to justify getting a little tipsy on a Saturday afternoon than supporting a good cause!
