Oh, the weather outside IS frightful, but thankfully your local booze purveyors are ready to keep you warm, even sans fire.


Wed. Dec. 1:  La Sirena Wines Tasting at FPWM (Financial Dist.)

Ferry Plaza Wine Merchants
Ferry Plaza
San Francisco, CA

4:30pm – 6:30pm – pricing $40

La Sirena stuck out as the highlight of my afternoon at the SF Vintners’ Market Tasting earlier this month.  During my time at La Sirena tasting table, I had the pleasure of talking to winemaker/owner Heidi Barrett and her daughter, Remi.  This charming and engaging duo poured  some memorable, limited-production wines, including the La Sirena Barrett Vineyard Syrah and the Napa Valley Cab.

Here’s what they plan to pour on Wednesday:

2009 La Sirena Moscato Azul, Napa Valley
Retail $30, 5oz. glass $10.75

2006 La Sirena Syrah, Santa Ynez
Retail $40, 5oz. glass $13.25

2006 La Sirena Syrah, Barrett Vineyard, Napa Valley
Retail $80, 5oz. glass $20.50

2007 La Sirena Pirate TreasuRed, Napa Valley (A New Cab Blend)
Retail $60, 5oz. glass $18.25

2007 La Sirena Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Retail $150, 5oz. glass $n/a


Fri. Dec. 3:  Bi-Rite Market Wine Blitz Preview Tasting (Mission)

18 Reasons
593 Guerrero Street
San Francisco, CA

6:00pm – 8:00pm – pricing $10

Join the BiRite wine team as they pour from their carefully selected cache, all in anticipation of their annual Holiday Wine Blitz (20% off any mix-and-match case, w/ free delivery to many parts of the city).  This is a great opportunity to taste a lot of wine, and find some new favorites to throw in w/ your Wine Blitz purchase.


Sat. Dec. 4:  Golden Gate Wine Cellars Tasting (Outer Sunset)

Lakeside Cafe
2529 Ocean Avenue
San Francisco CA

5:00pm – 8:00pm – pricing $40 for 1 / $60 for two

Great chance to taste some wines from Coho, Dunn, DuMol, and Sans Liege — knock out producers who don’t have tasting rooms.  Other wineries include:  Bella, Paloma, Inherit the Sheep, and others.  Serious.
