- Location San Francisco, CA
The San Francisco restaurant scene will come alive at Opening Night Dining, a ZinEX-clusive for VIP ticket holders. You’ll select your restaurant preferences from such luminaries as Town Hall, Scoma’s Restaurant, or Piperade.* Each dining experience will present a customized culinary feast with up to three winemakers hosting and a trend-defining menu made to order for Zinfandel at each location. It’s time to revel in the reunions and get reacquainted!
Located along the iconic Fisherman’s Wharf, a pier steeped in history and a continuing commitment to support local fisherman, Scoma’s has achieved legendary status, turning a hidden local hang-out into one of the nation’s highest grossing independent restaurants for over 50 plus years. Their pier to plate menu illustrates the timeless relationship between local fishermen and Scoma’s. We’ll be gathering in the Bay-Marin Room, which takes its name from the spectacular views of Mt. Tamalpais and the Marin Headlands, Sausalito and the San Francisco Bay.
