Nestled in the hills above West Portal in San Francisco, the San Francisco Wine Trading Company has been a Bay Area landmark since 1976. Our friendly and knowledgable staff helps our local customers make informed purchases from an impressive selection of wines, both from our native California and from importers like Robert Chadderdon and Kermit Lynch. Our store has regular wine tastings on Saturdays from 2-5:30pm and frequently hosts special events and tastings in coordination with local eateries.
After a partial renovation in 2008, we now also present a large spirits room, with a huge selection of hard-to-find liquors. If you are ever in San Francisco, please be sure to visit our store, we'd love to meet you!
"Gary took great care of us and recommended the perfect amount of wine for the headcount. We were very impressed."
"SFWTC is highly recommended. The store carries a wide variety of wines and spirits, covering French, Italian, and American wines, including some harder-to-find bottlings such as Tempier Cabassou and Quintarelli whites."
"We love this place! We worked with Gary on selecting our wines for our wedding this summer and he was so helpful. We had a blast tasting wines with him from all over the world and then chose 2-3 Californian affordable ones to go with. He also helped us come up with a great gift for all of our guests. My husband and I now want to go back there for one of their wine tasting events - such a great find!"
"They have nice selection of wine in the store, friendly service and you can try the wine before you purchase it. I like the area-neighberhood as well. Great place to meet friends for weekend fun."
