The Oakland Wine Festival Monthly Kick-Off Wine Tasting Classes and Soirees with the winemakers and leadership of the Honorary Steering Committee are opportunities to further build relationships, learn about exquisite wines, and support these amazing friends who are working to bring a world-class event to Oakland and the Greater Bay Area!

About the Oakland Wine Festival
The Oakland Wine Festival is primarily an educational and charitable collaboration. Select Napa Valley, Sonoma County and other vintners and wineries are joining with Melody to present the Oakland Wine Festival.

This is the first wine festival in Oakland that invites internationally recognized and highly acclaimed winemakers from the above and other regions to spend a day and night in Oakland’s beautiful treasure, Mills College.

This once in a lifetime gathering of outstanding chefs, who cook delicious dishes in Oakland restaurants, will be the first ever assembled group like this. Our gathered chefs will work collaboratively and independently to pair their food with the exquisite wines brought to the Oakland Wine Festival debut.

A significant portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to thoughtfully selected charities.
