The Winemaker Studios presents:

Maybe you already participated once or twice in the famous Santacon and don't feel like sitting in the hour-long bar lines this year...
Or maybe you live nearby the main hub and can't stand the sea of Santa's blocking your driveway...
Either way, we have the perfect getaway plan for you! Join us on Treasure Island (aka in the opposite direction of Santacon) and wine crawl your way through our 4 tasting rooms. While Santa hats and ugly sweaters are not required for this crawl, they are still welcomed if you want to bring a little extra holiday spirit with you!

The Winery SF was created with the vision of bringing the wine country experience to San Francisco.
As the city's first full-fledged winery, The Winery SF brings the tasting room, hospitality, and winemaking operations together along San Francisco's waterfront on Treasure Island. Dedicated to sustainable, earth-friendly practices, they utilize natural, old-world winemaking methods which bring out the individual characteristics of its Napa and Sonoma vineyards in every glass of its award-winning wines.
Winemaker Studios is a collective group of urban wineries located in a rustic, relaxed setting with waterfront and Bay Bridge skyline views, providing a genuine, wine tasting experience. Located on San Francisco’s historic Treasure Island, Winemaker Studios brings together great winemakers to provide a one-of-a-kind urban wine experience for individuals, private events and unique corporate gatherings.

Sol Rouge: Sol Rouge is a family estate vineyard and winery located in the Red Hills Appellation at elevations over 1800 feet. North of Napa Valley in the foothills of the dormant volcano which formed the North Coast wine country, this land contains rich, red volcanic soil and, from this unique profile, Sol Rouge derived its name – translating to “Red Soil” in French. This 70-acre estate is currently planted with Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Counoise, Cinsault, Petite Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Located in the Mayacamas Mountain range, this aggressive sight is all hillside with slopes up to 60% and is said to be the most tightly planted vineyard in the Red Hills, with nearly 6000 vines per hectare in some blocks.
Sottomarino Winery: Sottomarino Winery is an authentic urban winery, tasting room and event venue located on San Francisco’s historic Treasure Island. Translated to “submarine” in Italian, Sottomarino is housed in a submarine-like training vessel with breathtaking views of the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco Bay waterfront. Sottomarino is focused on Italian varietals, delivering classic "old-world" style wines that pair well with food. Located just minutes away from San Francisco and Oakland, Sottomarino is both accessible and convenient for residents and visitors in the Bay Area.
