We went for a glass of wine before dinner. It is a cute space and they have a good selection of wines. But the service was surly and unfriendly. I am a champagne drinker and was not familiar with two of the canvas/proseccos on the list. I asked for the flavor/sweetness difference between a rose cava and a prosecco and... More

Staff was nice they were recommending us some local wines, I wish that they will tell us more about them, but anyway that was great experience.

When I visit S.F. I typically stay somewhere in the Marina District. On my most recent trip, I discovered the CA Wine Merchant for an afternoon glass of wine. The proprietor, Greg, is a 30+ year veteran of wine with excellent recommendations for wine selections. We sat next to an open window with a view onto Chestnut St enjoying a... More

We spent a memorable few hours here enjoying fabulous wines. The staff were fantastic. Their knowledge of the wines on the menu was admirable as the menu is long... Ambiance fit perfectly too.

This place has a fine selection of wines, both red and white. The emphasis on wine produced in California is excellent. The vibe is invigorating, though it is a small place. The decor is simple but appealing. The service quick and efficient.

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
