Lips are still smacking as the buzz following our second annual Toast of the Town, San Francisco echoes through the blogosphere. We’re honored to have met so many readers and customers, and to have received such positive feedback following the event.

Gutenberg at the Daily Feed called it a “nicely staged production of gastronomic proportions” and said the sashimi of spot prawns from Campton Place was “spot-on” and he “went bananas for” the oxtail rendang with polenta wrapped in a banana leaf.

YumSugar features some of their favorite sips and tastes, remarking that “Malbec was the wine of the night” but the Chateau Laroque St. Emilion Grand Cru Classe 2000 was “excellently bodied, smooth and complex.”

Jo Diaz at Wine-Blog enjoyed some Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc as well as a “gorgeous Merryvale Chardonnay.”

Jim Gordon, our resident blogger over at Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s Unreserved, enjoyed sipping some cool Rieslings and found a large assortment from Washington, Australia, Monterey, and Mendocino.

Take a peek at some highlights from this year, in our slideshow:
