The wine list is extensive at the bar at Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco, and features the flavors of California. Located on the fifth floor of the Five-Star hotel, adjacent to Seasons restaurant, the bar is adorned soft lighting, rich warm wood and views of downtown San Francisco — it’s a spot frequented by locals and tourists alike.
The wine list changes frequently, but you can always expect to find dozens of local wines, treasures from the cellar and vintage bottles of champagne. A recent summer list featured five champagnes and sparkling wines by the glass, as well as 11 whites, 11 reds, a rosé and four dessert wines by the glass. That list included plenty of classics like a Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label champagne, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc from Napa Valley and pinot noir from Carneros.
There are a handful of wine flights — grouped into categories such as “French Connoisseurs,” “Interpretations of Chardonnay,” and “Sparkling & Glittery” — and vintage champagne, white wine and red wine available in limited supply.
The white wine list is divided by type and region, and includes chardonnay from Napa Valley, Sonoma County and a few other areas as well as local sauvignon blancs, viognier, riesling, pinot gris, pinot grigio, pinot blanc and a selection of other whites from France, Italy, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.
The red wine list is also divided by type and region. You’ll find a ton of pinot noir from Sonoma County, Carneros, Central Coast and Oregon, as well as cabernet sauvignon and bordeaux blends from Napa Valley and Sonoma County. There are a few cult cabernet first-growths and boutique wineries featured, as well as Rhone blends, zinfandel, merlot, Shiraz, Syrah, cabernet franc and a selection of other reds from France, Italy, Spain, Chile, Argentina and Australia.
There’s a wine for every wallet size and palate, so come curious and thirsty.
