The Guardsmen Christmas Tree Lot has been a Bay Area institution for over fifty years, and benefits charities for at-risk youth throughout San Francisco and its surrounding areas. This completely volunteer-run lot turns Christmas tree shopping into a festive family event, complete with an indoor lounge and Holiday Boutique section, a children’s bookstore, and play area for your kids!
This winter season, Cultivar is proud to host a wine-tasting bar and Holiday Pop-Up Shop at the Guardsmen Tree Lot’s Holiday Boutique. We have lined up some of our best seasonal wines for this event, including our crisp, citrusy 2016 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and our beautiful 2014 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, distinctive for its balance of berry fruit, cedar notes, and dark chocolate flavors. As a visitor to our Holiday Pop-Up Shop, you also enjoy special pricing and free delivery! Take home wines and gift packages same-day, or ask us to deliver your purchases within San Francisco, free of charge.
This past Friday, we had a wonderful time with The Guardsmen for their Kid’s Day and Craft Beer Night events, where in addition to our wines we also offered our craft Cultivar Beers, including our Chinook Pale Ale and our Cascade Centennial IPA. Surrounded by festive lights, cheerful bustle, and the minty smell of dozens of freshly cut Christmas trees, we felt like Christmas had come early!
In the coming weeks, we can’t wait to meet more families, volunteers, and friends who come to the Tree Lot to shop, mingle, benefit a good cause, and catch up with loved ones over Christmas treats and wine. Come sip a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon while doing all (or most) of your holiday shopping at the Boutique, or just sit back and relax in the cozy lounge while your kids browse through books from Little Pickle Stories or exhaust themselves in the jumpy house.
The Christmas season is one of our favorite times of the year, filled with moments around the fireplace or the dinner table, enjoying delicious food and wine while sharing memories and making new ones. Our mission at Cultivar is to enhance these moments, facilitate the spirit of giving, and bring people together both during this holiday season, and year-round.
