For the second year in a row, the public will have a unique and fun chance to sample over 50 wines and learn about local Asian American community groups in the Bay Area.

Co-hosted by Les Tso, a veteran in the beverage industry, and Aggregate Productions, the “A Community Affair: Summer in the City” will take place Friday June 19 at The Green Room inside the War Memorial Veterans Building in San Francisco.

“The Bay Area is a hotbed of community activism.  There are hundreds, probably thousands of groups that give back to the community” says Tso. “But, how does one sort through them? This event will be a great chance to meet and greet many local Asian American community groups and taste over 50 wines from many regions in a friendly atmosphere.”

This year’s event features over 15 diverse Asian community groups, including: Asian American Theater Company, Asian Community Mental Health Services, Asian Women’s Resource Center, CauseConnext, Chinese for Affirmative Action, Community Educational Services,  Hyphen Magazine, Kearny Street Workshop, Narika, Nakayoshi Young Professionals, Oriented, Richmond Area Multi-Services, SF Hep B Free, Wa Sung Service Club, and Young Filipinos Professional Association.

The event will feature 12 new and four returning wineries and wine retailers, including: Alejos Cellars, Armida Winery, Artesa Vineyards & Winery, Blacksmith Cellars, Coppola Wines, Dee Vine Wines, Fleming Jenkins Vineyards & Winery, J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines, Korbin Kameron Vineyards, La Famiglia Winery, Rodney Strong Vineyards, Snows Lake Vineyard, Tres Sabores, VERGE, Wine Cellars, Vinum Global Imports, and Wente Vineyards.

Last year’s first ever event successfully drew over 500 attendees.
