Golden Gate Wine Cellars LogoThis is the official blog of Golden Gate Wine Cellars! Located in the heart of San Francisco just a stone’s throw from Napa Valley, we are “the” premier wine retail source, specializing in hard-to-find boutique and cult wineries. We pride ourselves in stocking only small, boutique producers – many of them only available via the winery mailing lists!

Our mission is to provide you with good-old-fashioned personalized service and quality wine at a competitive price. In addition to offering you the finest wines, we host public, private, and corporate wine tasting events for groups from 5 to 500. We also offer specialized services such as inventory management, private wine tasting tours, and staff training by renowned wine expert Frank Melis.

We ship worldwide in 100% recycled materials! During the cold winter and hot summer months we can store your wines in our temperature controlled wine storage and ship it to you at a later date so you always receive your wines in optimum condition. We do not charge for storage! We also offer a temperature controlled shipping option during the summer to keep you wine cool during transport.

Join us on select Saturdays from 1-5 PM for our special in-store wine tasting events or on-line “Zoom” virtual tastings. We will sample some of Napa’s finest wines and frequently have the winemakers or owners in attendance for you to meet. See the upcoming schedule at

Our retail showroom is located at 2337 Ocean Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94127 and is open Monday – Saturday from 6 A.M. – 5 P.M. and by appointment.
