TIBURON PENINSULA WINE FESTIVAL
60 wineries. 20 restaurants. 1 extraordinary event.
Did we mention bay views and one of Marin’s hottest bands? There’s a reason the Tiburon Wine Festival is one of the Bay Area’s most popular wine events.
Featuring wines from both established and small production wineries, the Tiburon Wine festival provides a rare opportunity to experience new wines and savor old favorites. Taste wines from Napa, Sonoma and as far afield as Italy and Hungary. Among the participating wineries in 2019 are Frank Family Vineyards, Grgich Hills Estate, MacRostie Winery & Vineyards, Rosenblum Cellars and Twomey Cellars. See below for the full list.
Great local restaurants and food purveyors! 2019's Festival includes Batter up Dough, Sonoma Coast Spirits, Woodlands Market, Luna Blu, Pizza Antica, Sam's Anchor Cafe, Servino Ristorante, Tiburon Tavern, Chili Palace, Judy's Breadsticks, Lolas, Three Sisters Artisanal Meats & Paranga. We're also so excited to have the award winning Mina Group Restaurant to the 2019 Tiburon Wine Festival!
The Extras Enjoy live music and a VIP lounge. Beer lovers will enjoy the beer tastings from select breweries.

Private Cruise! New this year! Want to avoid the crowds? Come aboard your own private vessel for front row views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, Angel Island and the Golden Gate Bridge while on your way to the FAB-U-LOUS Wine Festival. Depart Pier 40 at Noon to arrive in Tiburon at 12:50 pm. Return trip departs Tiburon at 4:20 pm to arrive at Pier 40 at 5 pm. Please note that the private cruise tickets must be purchased separately from the wine festival tickets.

San Francisco’s on-demand, all-weather water taxi service will be running a special wine festival run departing City Yachts next to Fort Mason at 12:00pm and arriving at Sam’s Anchor Cafe in Tiburon at 12:30pm.
Let Someone Else Do The Driving
This is a good idea made even better by the availability of services such as Uber and Lyft. In addition, there are several taxi companies in Marin that will get you to Tiburon and pick you up later at an arranged time. New in 2019! We’ll have a ride service drop off point steps from the festival entrance. Could not be easier.
Bus Route 219 operates all along Tiburon Boulevard and brings you right to the Wine Festival. Park anywhere along its route and get a free ride (just show your ticket) on one of Marin Transit’s eco-friendly shuttles that run every half hour between 8:00AM and 7:30PM.
Drive to Tiburon
