The wines presented in the flight were representative for the wine districts north of SF for sure. Even though the staff was flexible and provided some other wine than was included in the flight I believe a little more enthusiasm wouldn't hurt.. But don't let that stop you from paying a visit. And do have a look at the art... More

This store is not a chain, and it's the only one. The wine selection in the flight was very good, selected from local vintners. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. I would go here again.

We stopped in to taste some wines from CA and ended up doing a few of their tastings (accompanied with a more than generously sized cheese platter!). The wines they served up were ALL really great wines (whites & reds). We were really impressed and walked away wishing we could find more places in Sydney (where we live) that offer... More

We got to Sausalito after our SF tour and decided to drop in to a local wine tasting room. The service was absolutely horrible. They don't care about you there. The rude lady, probably an owner, doesn't know even how to talk to people. Been in wine tasting business for a while I was surprised how they pour red wine... More

Loved Marcy the wine expert! She can read you like a book, know what type of wine you might be interested in, sample new wines and purchase them as well. Not only a wine bar but you can purchase as well. Great find!

If you want a really great wine selection and your not headed for Sonoma or Napa, go here. I admit it, we pay a lot for the wine we drink. But it's so good to have a wonderful pinot, cab, or whatever your favorite is. Visited there numerous times when staying in Sausalito.

I walked into this store to buy two bottles of wine for my husband. I was helped out by a competent and knowledgeable woman who selected a few bottles for my choosing. Great experience. Wine ended up being wonderful.

We visited Sausalito a few weeks ago during our 25th Anniversary trip to SF. While waiting for the next ferry back to SF my husband and I decided to stop back at this store to purchase a bag I was interested in and check out the tasting menu. My husband was speaking with owner, he asked if I wanted to... More

Good wine, moderate price. The 2 male servers were not too attentive. more interested in using their cell phone/texting than spending time waiting on us. Could have been more attentive.

We visited Bacchus and Venus on our Bridgeway stroll. They have some interesting wine-related items for sale but we went a cheaper route and picked up a couple of excellent bottles of $10 wine. The owner also provided crackers and cheese for our own, private wine tasting.
