First Friday Parties in 2018

Our First Friday Celebrations are the biggest party of the month! We stay open late, bring in the art, music, and food – and you bring the rest of the good times. For September, we have cancelled the art gallery as we are knee deep in grape harvest – and things can be sticky in the cellar!!!

Join us, Friday August 3rd, 6-9pm!!
// LIVE MUSIC: Mama Foxxy and the Whiskey Gypsy Rebels
// FOOD POP-UP: Good-To-Eat Dumplings + Oak&Fig Baking

No charge admission, wine and food available for purchase.

Californios Wine Dinner – April 10th

Join us April 10 for a very special wine and pairing dinner with Californios.   Tickets will be available online at https://www.exploretock.com/californiossf/ in early March.

We first met the team when they came to taste at the winery in 2016.   Unlike most tasting,  both front and back of the house visited and what a great crew.   We were very excited when we visited a few weeks later.  A complete treat and everything was truly delicious.  Val’s cooking is inspired.
