This cozy West Portal wine bar's speciality is small-batch wine from international producers. If you live in the neighborhood, or if you're just a wine enthusiast, it's worth stopping by regularly to check out Que Syrah's weekly wine flight deals. Cheese, charcuterie, and other wine-friendly plates are available, but if you have more of a sweet tooth, skip the savory stuff and go straight for the chocolate truffles.
The Best Wine Bars in San Francisco
This narrow storefront is easy to miss while walking down quaint West Portal Avenue. The cute, 500-square-foot venue has a surprisingly large selection of small-production wines grown both locally and around the globe. If you can’t decide on what to drink, try a regional flight, such as reds from Paso Robles or whatever the husband-and-wife owners offer for the week. Small bites like empanadas and charcuterie plates are just enough to keep you satisfied while imbibing in an unpretentious neighborhood gem.
