92 Points James Suckling: Blackcurrants mix with dark chocolate on the nose. Full-bodied with taught tannins. There is a good concentration and depth here, with the dark fruit and woody spice. Succint and well-composed finish. Best after 2024.
Double Gold: 2022 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
92 Points Wine Enthusiast: This is a robustly intense and brooding wine, firm and thick in tannin and dark, dense fruit. Tobacco, black licorice and woody oak round it out and provide a contrast of complexity. -V.B.

On a nice-ish day, head to Cultivar and go straight to the back patio where there’s plenty of heaters and a massive fireplace. Order any of the Cultivar wines (let’s be real, rosé), and a small plate to share (it’s the grilled cheese). Weekday happy hour is worth a trip in too with serious deals on wine and snacks.
For Kelly Huibregtse, life is all about balance. On top of caring for premature infants as a NICU doctor, she also makes time to share original recipes, travel inspiration, and style and design ideas on her popular blog, A Side of Sweet.
The self-proclaimed workaholic works to prioritize her health, exercising regularly and being mindful of nutrition. (She provides plenty of health tips in her blog posts.) However, that doesn’t stop Huibregtse from indulging every now and then as she eats her way through the delicious San Francisco food scene.
After moving to San Francisco five years ago with her husband, the foodie has totally immersed herself in the city’s “cosmopolitan, foggy and charming” character. “Every neighborhood is completely different and amazing in its own way,” she explains. “You can feel the change even when you walk a couple of blocks, and there are always new restaurants to explore.”
When she’s not traveling the world or crafting San Francisco food guides, you might find Huibregtse enjoying the lemon ricotta pancakes at Plow or working out among the towering eucalyptus trees in Golden Gate Park. Check out all of this San Francisco foodie’s favorite spots around town:
Best glass of wine: Cultivar has small batches of their own wine and delicious small bites to pair them with.
Best historic or iconic San Francisco landmark to see or explore:
You really can’t visit San Francisco without a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge. Seeing it never gets old!
The best aspect of San Francisco is: Every neighborhood is completely different and amazing in its own way. You can feel the change even when you walk a couple of blocks, and there are always new restaurants to explore.
