Join the Bay Area Alumni Network to welcome UMass Amherst Chancellor Kumble R. Subbaswamy to California. The chancellor's visit to the west coast is on the eve of the university’s 150th anniversary. Come meet the new chancellor and hear his plans for future growth.

You’ll also experience SOMA history as the Bluxome Street Winery brings California winemaking back to its birthplace. It’s a little known fact that California winemaking started not in Napa or Sonoma, but right here in San Francisco—SOMA, to be exact. No less than 120 wineries and commercial cellars called SOMA home. Sadly, the 1906 earthquake ended many of those dreams, until now. 

A special thank you to Bluxome Street Winery and Peter F. Chouinard '88, president and operating partner, for graciously sponsoring this event.
