New Winery To Open By Golden Gate Bridge
As the first ever urban winery inside a U.S. state park, Foggy Bridge will set up shop near the Golden Gate Bridge at the Presidio, a former military base. Whose behind this? Daryl Groom, the former senior red wine maker from Penfolds in Australia and Geyser Peak in Sonoma. Expecting to produce 8,000 cases, the products of the winery will include a Napa Cabernet, Santa Maria Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and a Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc. The winery will include a tasting room as well as Left Bank Brassiere headed up by Chef Roland Passot. As much as I love driving around Napa Valley when I come to the city, I think it's great to see the historic Presidio providing a local winery-experience without the long drive. Foggy Bridge will open summer of 2008.
