Great for a last minute gift – I've stopped in several times since moving to Russian Hill and have always gotten good wine recommendations and felt comfortable browsing or just chatting with the staff. Every person I've spoken with there easily qualifies as a true wine enthusiast.
Wine tasting worth going to – Great wine shop, and their Wednesday night wine tasting is fun - guys pouring are very friendly and willing to talk about the wines as much or as little as you want. The better known wine nights can get pretty crowded (italian wines, etc), but still worth going to. (Not really a singles pick up spot -- from a female perspective anyway -- more girls than guys as a general rule, and the guys that come are usually w. someone.)
Polk Street wine store morphs into a wine bar at night. – In Short
With a large section devoted to bottles priced at $15 or less and a welcoming, helpful staff, this Russian Hill wine shop is certainly beginner-friendly. The multitude of different wines, however, will please even the most discriminating oenophile. Different from most wine stores in that there's also a bar in back, themed tasting classes are offered on Wednesday nights, and wines by the glass are sold Friday through Sunday.
Great Spot-Great Wine – Great selection, knowledge of staff and best prices in town!
Tasting on Wednesday are rocking and extremely informative and Wine bar is friendly and services restaurants on the block
Best Wine Store in Town – This is the best place to find high quality wines without necessarily paying high prices. Great, friendly and insighful service with terrific variety with many choices. You tell them a meal you are preparing , and they will show you the best wines to compliment all flavors. They even host wine tastings every Wednesday night
