If you don’t have time to drive out of San Francisco to wine country, Jax Vineyards conveniently has a tasting room in downtown San Francisco. Jax’s tasting room is near my work in the SOMA neighborhood and I go there quite often after work. Whether you are from out of town or a local, it’s a great place to mix and mingle with the tech crowd.
I love their outdoor patio complete with comfy couches, a fire pit, and an ivy-covered wall so you feel a little bit like you’re not in the city but at their actual vineyard in Calistoga. There are wine barrels that serve as some of the table tops to rest your glass of wine or flight of wines and cheese platter. Glowing lights and heat lamps are there for after the sun sets and the San Francisco night chills creep in. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a long day of work or sightseeing and this place is good for groups. The more the merrier at Jax Vineyards Tasting Room!
