The Fog's Rolling In

Item Picture
  • Publish Date: Mar 25, 2009

Queue the sound of a fog horn as the first whisps of cloud snake under the Goden Gate Bridge. The warm afternoon sun shines its amber glow back on the city in the distance…

While the location of Foggy Bridge Winery will potentially make an excellent spot to begin a Danielle Steele novel, it will also be a sweet edition to the city of San Francisco. The winery itself will be placed inside a historical airplane hanger at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge and will boast a restaurant and café.

Not only are we excited to spend an afternoon there, but we're also pleased with their recently released first vintage of wine. Foggy Bridge sources fruit for its Riesling from Washington State; it appropriately offers bright acidity and floral overtones; the winery’s Zinfandel is a typical jammy Zin without being a total “fruit-bomb;” best of all, all Foggy Bridge wines are less than $20! While residents and tourists alike will have to wait over a year to take a walk along the bay to taste wine at Foggy Bridge Winery, you can already checkout the their dramatic plans and order Foggy Bridge wine online at
