The history of winemaking in the city of San Francisco dates back before the Great Fire of 1906, when several wineries operated in what is now the SoMa (South of Market) portion of downtown. Today, a new chapter is being written by winemakers who source their grapes from Napa, Sonoma, Lake County, and beyond. Located in industrial warehouses and airplane hangars from downtown to Oakland and Alameda, the wineries of San Francisco offer exceptional wines and a relaxed urban vibe.
