California’s Finest Wine Store
in Downtown San Francisco

We specialize in Small-production, Rare and Vineyard-specific gem wines.

Since 1988, we have provided our customers with California’s most unique and prized wine bottlings. Through our distinctive wine clubs and jewel-box store situated in San Francisco’s Union Square district, Napa Valley Winery Exchange offers a uniquely personal and attentive wine buying experience. Our staff of highly skilled wine professionals not only assist our customers, but are also an integral part of our tasting/selection process.

• Rare, vineyard-specific wine gems
• Micro-production wines; from value bottlings to top-rated cult classics
• Dozens of new wines debuted in our shop every week
• Countless bottles that rarely, if ever,  make it out of state
• Wine clubs for every taste and budget…delivered directly to your door

If our staff doesn’t love the wine, it doesn’t make it to our shelves!

Summer Patio Pounders

Patio Pounders are easy-drinking, everyday wines to have around the house for all occasions. The San Francisco Tasting Panel selects wines throughout the year that simply over deliver for the price. The selection changes from time to time and will always include wines that provide the greatest value money can buy.

Maya Wines Available

The 2019 Maya has once again amazed us with its opulence and depth of flavors. Given the fact that there won’t be a 2020 vintage of this wine, our allocations have been extremely cut back. Only 9 bottles available of the Maya, and 24 bottles of the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines will ship in the first few weeks of October when it cools down. Call us at (415) 771-2887 to reserve yours today as these wines always sell out.

The French Connection

Three reds and three whites, all from different Burgundy communes.  All of these are a step up from your regular village wines, all from single vineyards. Create some space in your cellar for your new Burgundy section.

    The owner is super knowledgeable . They do not sell wines that do not taste .
    Strongly recommend for wine enthusiasts.

    Excellent- just like the other reviews. I don’t know much about wine but am trying to learn and the lovely person with a septum piercing (god I’m bad with … More names) was so nice and knowledgeable! I felt like I got the perfect gift for my mom. I wasn’t going to buy one for myself but I felt so comfortable that I had to grab one for me. Both people there today were great- will return. Thanks!

    Took a respite from the rain while weekending in San Francisco. Nice selection of less common wines that speak to their relationships in the wine industry. … More Andy was a pleasure to talk to & he has great depth of knowledge and a passion for their offerings. Highly recommend for a special bottle and I look forward to returning.
