What a lovely wine bar. Opened by Claudio Villani in the Cole Valley neighborhood in 2013, today displays new owners (Kari and Francesco) but the same successful concept. The atmosphere is cosy, both at the counter and at the outside tables. The wine list is designed with love and great research, and includes lesser known indigenous terroirs and traditional style wines, with a focus on artisanal vignerons. There are about twenty wines poured by the glass, also available in half-glasses, and a fine value for money selection of labels. It is difficult to find such good bottles on the $30 mark. These are paired to delicious snacks such as vegetable flans, plates of cheese and cured meats, an amatriciana with all the trappings of the genre, a solid classic in tune with the rest of the solid cuisine. And they know how to cook sardines. Good lighting and warm atmosphere. This is our Contadi Castaldi Best Wine Bar in San Francisco.
