About

San Francisco Wine School has been providing world class wine education and events since 2011.  Founded by Master Sommelier David Glancy, we are your go-to provider of all things wine and other fine beverages!  Bring us to your location, come to our gorgeous education & event center, or join us virtually for the private tasting or dining experience of your choice. Theme possibilities are endless! We source our beverages from across the globe to create the ultimate tasting experience, custom tasting kits can be delivered to almost any state, and our chef will blow your mind.

Our gorgeous, sunlight-filled wine education & events center is also available for rent and conveniently located just five minutes from San Francisco International Airport. This top floor venue boasts 16’ high coved ceilings, eight 12’ tall arched windows, and gorgeous 180 degree views of the San Bruno Mountains, South San Francisco City Hall and the San Francisco Bay, making it the perfect place to enjoy classes, industry seminars and tastings and host a wide variety of private events.

Two sets of moveable acoustic walls allow us to configure the 4,000 sq ft center in a variety of ways - from three private rooms to one grand event space. Modular furniture allows table seating for 130 and walk-around gatherings of up to 400.

Our state-of-the-art AV system is included with all venue rentals. Multiple mobile 80" monitors and Zoom Room technology puts your content in just the right place and supports integrated in-person/online hybrid experiences for both "roomers" and "Zoomers"!
