Mead (all varieties) was excellent and you will love hearing about the great care that goes into this amazing little operation. The owners are excellent, personable hosts and love pouring mead and sharing their stories about the business and their lives. Never expected this in Hunters (street parking only) - it's definitely worth it! SF Mead uses local honey, fruit and spices to craft high quality mead.  Oron and Sara’s meads range from dry to sweet.  Honey has a unique character that expresses the character of the region in a new an exciting way. The tour was very comprehensive and informative. You are able to taste the raw honey that Oron uses to make the mead as well as tasting the mead in various stages. A favorite was the blackberry that was not ready for bottling. We wish Oron and Sarah continued success so that they can keep pumping out delicious meads.

Cuvée Wine Cellars - A great little urban winery Cuvée Wine Cellars that began with a passionate home winemaker intent on producing quality wines. After a run of successes in amateur- winemaking contests across California, inspiration struck and the Paul Rogerville decided to tackle the daunting task of becoming a bonded winery.  Great new winery in San Carlos. The staff is so friendly. We have enjoyed a number of visits. There is always delicious appetizers or food and plenty of wine and we haven't had a bad bottle yet. This place is definitely worth a visit. Cuvée Wine Cellars being located on the Central Peninsula does not permit them to grow their own grapes. This has not proved to much of an obstacle by any means as Paul has partnered with some of the most outstanding vineyards in Northern California. Cuvée Wine Cellars is open on the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month and special events or by appointment.

What I can say is that I love visiting the wine store/tasting room/storage facility. First of all, you get the fantastic views of San Francisco and the East Bay from Treasure Island. Then the Wines is located in a very quiet part of an already quiet island -- it is like getting away to the wine country but only having to drive for 20 minutes! The building is a cool space that the Wines uses for tastings, storage of lots of different label wines, and also for special events. The staff from Wines and the other wine sellers there are all very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Prices are right for most budgets. A fun and unique space to visit and bring your friends! Open on the weekends and for special events.

Tom and Mary Stubbs fell in love with West Marin long before they planted their first vines. The fog-shrouded vales just inland from Tomales Bay on their 600 acres are quite similar in climate to that of some major grape-growing areas nearby: Napa's Carneros region, the Sonoma Coast, and the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County.

West Wind Wines has the only wine cave in Marin County. It took two years to get the permits and two months to build the cave. It is kept at 55 degrees year around to keep the wine in the barrels cool and humid. Inside the cave at an “aroma table”, owner and winemaker Cynthia Klock encourages guests to sniff a hand full of cloves, sniff the wine and then take a sip. The scent will bring out the distinctive essences of cloves in the wine. She also has separate glasses with bits of chocolate, oak, herbs, leather, vanilla and pepper to illustrate the different characteristics in other wines. For example, a sniff of vanilla brings out that unique nature in the Muscat Canelli.

Vie comes from the Old French word meaning "to invite" or "to give occasion for". Or, in French today, it is simply translated "Life". Vie Winery is fantastic, it has the look and feel of an urban winery, but the displacement of being on Treasure Island so you are able to feel like it is a bit of an escape. WIth beautiful views of San Francisco and the rest of the bay area, it is an awesome place to spend a beautiful day.

Three vineyard blocks contributed to this wine. From the Nord Vineyard, at the southern mouth of the Napa River where the water spills into the San Pablo/San Francisco Bay, comes the prettiness of clone 115. Stanly Ranch, in Carneros just west across the Napa River from Nord, provided two very different blocks. The structure of clones 114 comes from block 17, which is higher on the hillside, and the prettiness of clone 777 comes from block 14, which is tucked down away from the wind.

Point Reyes Vineyards, family owned and operated on scenic Highway 1, overlooking the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore, is 40 miles north of San Francisco. For three generations, our family has proudly farmed the rich, fertile lands of Marin County. In 1990, our love of fine wines led to the planting of a small vineyard.
