In the late 1800's the denizens of San Francisco embarked on a bold experiment to identify grape varieties suited to thrive in the city's many microclimates. With this knowledge they planted large swaths of vines around the city, kept careful and loving records of their yields and began a successful journey in wine-making that was cut short by the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fires. We have humbly taken it upon ourselves to continue this voyage by creating a patchwork of vineyards in small spaces around the city.
We currently have a vineyard at Alemany Farms in Bernal Heights with 349 pinot noir vines. The first wine grapes will be ready for harvest in 2016.
