SAN FRANCISCO — The Rhone Rangers are moving across the San Francisco Bay to the historic Craneway Pavilion at Ford Point for the 17th annual Bay Area Grand Tasting on Sunday, April 6.

The day will celebrate the craftsmanship of 100-plus American winemakers who will pour more than 400 Rhone-varietal wines. Guests will be able to enjoy views of the bay and city skyline from the renovated architectural gem built more than 80 years ago by Henry Ford as an assembly plant for automobiles.

Small plates of American fare will be available from Assemble Restaurant, under the direction of Richard Mazzera, an alumnus of Chez Panisse and the owner of Cesar in Berkeley. More than 2,000 wine lovers and members of the trade and media are expected to attend the Rhone Rangers tasting. Tickets are now on sale at RhoneRangers.org.

Private ferry service will be available for San Francisco-based fans. For those who use BART, there will be round-trip complimentary shuttle service from the El Cerrito BART Station.

The event begins the seminar series from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.; from 1-3 p.m. is the trade and VIP tasting, followed by the grand tasting, from 3-6 p.m.

For more information, call 800-467-0163.
