John & Alex of Birichino

  • Local Cellar 2869 23rd Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

John and Alex see themselves as very fortunate to be able pursue what they know AND love: to make distinctive wine from carefully tended vineyards dating back to the 19th and early 20th centuries, as well as a few from the Late Disco era! Birichino (meaning naughty in Italian) are also deeply grateful for the experiences they've had working with talented Old and New World winemakers over the past couple decades in California! They both came from working with Bonny Doon's Randall Grahm. They also studied with many other talented winemakers and mentors in Europe, such as Andre Ostertag in Alsace and a host of  small producers from Madiran to the Minervois to Puglia to Piemonte and beyond! John and Alex see it as "If we can do right by the vineyard sites we are fortunate to draw on, and manage to impart the wonderment and excitement we feel for what we do, we have succeeded. We hope in some small measure what we produce will also add a little joy to the world." Come taste some joy!

Tasting is free and available anytime from 4:00 - 6:00.  Must be at least 21 years old.
