And to celebrate our passion, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SF MOMA) will be hosting How Wine Became Modern: Design + Wine 1976 to Now, an exhibit that is the first of its kid, providing a full sensory experience. See how architecture, design, and media have played a role in developing and transforming wine I the past three decades. “Developed in collaboration with the New York architecture studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the exhibition features historical artifacts, architectural models, multimedia installations, newly commissioned artworks, and even a ‘smell wall’ to provide a richly textured experience in the galleries” (SF MOMA). The exhibit is available now through April 17, 2011, and is a must see for all wine lovers, from the novice to the connoisseur. Close out the eveing at one of San Francisco’s many wine bars.
