We found this great little place while walking by the fisherman's warf. We stopped in and had a couple of glasses at the bar. The Sangiovese and Cab were very nice. The bartender was great and not only very knowledgeable about the wines extremely friendly.

Skilled bar-tender and a large selection of wines. The location close to the pier is nice too. Definitely worth the visit.

Have fond memories of this place. It used to be a cool fun hip hangout. But those days are over. The guy who works there now is unbelievably rude, knows little to nothing about wine, and tells you up front he works on tips. Thumbs...More

A great pit stop to sample some avant-garde CA wine blends. For a purist like myself, the blends are surprisingly good. Their Winery label (bunted in SF !!) for a blend of several Cabs from different CA regions is a delightful surprise. One may taste...More

This place is run by two friendly and entertaining guys who clearly love what they do and they have a vast knowledge of wine. There are a few different options on tastings so we chose a mix of white and red. It was only $15...More
