Foggy Bridge will offer an actual working winery where you will be able to learn about and enjoy California's diverse range of wine varieties, a venue for friends and family to gather for celebratory events and a premier resource for wine education.
Foggy Bridge also offers tours of our estate vineyard in Livermore that show you where our estate wine grapes are grown, how we grow them and what we do to make sure we have the best fruit for our estate wines. Our tours are offered by appointment and are conducted on electric motor scooters so you can see the vineyard in a fun way. We call it "Tour the vines, taste the wines."
Foggy Bridge will also offer soon a unique way to visit our vineyard, by zip line travelling over the top of the vines. We will tell you more about this as it develops.
As we search for the perfect location for our winery, we have many needs to consider. First and foremost, our location must be efficient for winemaking. Our grapes will be transported from the best growing regions of the Bay Area to our new winery for crushing, fermentation and barrel aging and the winery will be designed for boutique, small lot winemaking. We also want the location to be convenient to locals as well as the many visitors who come to San Francisco to experience the acclaimed culinary reputation our city has earned. For those who don't have the time to visit wine country, Foggy Bridge will provide a real winery experience where visitors can learn about the winemaking process and enjoy wines from several of California's greatest vineyard appellations.
Foggy Bridge Winery will reflect the spirit of our city - fun, casual, irreverent, open-minded and creative.
