May Wine Blitz on 18th Street!: Monday, May 13th – Sunday, May 19th

All wines are 20% off when you purchase any 12 bottles or more.  This crazy sale includes every wine in the store, and as always, free delivery in San Francisco! Please note this Blitz is taking place at our 18th Street Market only.

Our wines are hand-selected by our buyers Trac, Matt, Mel and Ian, who taste every single wine before deciding whether to offer it. We usually taste ten to twenty wines before choosing one we think you’ll love, because we want you to feel confident that any and every bottle on our shelves is delicious, great with food, and will wow your guests. For our “eclectic selection” and “fair prices”, 7×7 Magazine named us Best Wine Shop in the Mission neighborhood.

We talk about our emphasis on food-friendly wines; turns out that in going after wines that compliment the flavors in food, we’re easily led towards an appreciation of  “natural” wines. Natural wines tend to be lower in alcohol, less tannic, less manipulated, and a clearer reflection of terroir….more food-friendly! Many of our wines are natural, organic, biodynamic, or all (those that aren’t are probably produced with old world methods.) The world of natural wines can be confusing to navigate, so we’ve written up our own “manifesto” to help you through.

We offer a 10% discount on purchases of 6 bottles or more, and it’s ok to mix and match. We’ll happily do special orders for a minimum order of a half case. And if you buy 12 or more bottles, we’ll deliver anywhere in San Francisco for free!

In addition to staple liquors, we offer a number of local artisanal spirits, such as Anchor Distilling, Distillery 209Germain-Robin, St. George Spirits and Charbay.

Whether you prefer lambics, porters, or pilsners, our beer assortment boasts a number of unique selections. We feature local beers from Russian River Brewing Co. 21st Amendment and Speakeasy as well as from Belgium and beyond, plus biodynamically produced ciders, and more.

Our Wine Blitzes

During our annual wine blitzes, all wines are 20% off when you purchase any 12 bottles or more.  This crazy sale includes every wine in the store, and as always, free delivery in San Francisco!

18th St. Wines

18th Street Wines are special bottlings made exclusively for Bi-Rite and are available only at our Market. We partner with local winemakers to craft wines to match the cuisine offered by our kitchen. We actively participate in the blending and bottling process to ensure that all wines bearing the 18th Street label are wines we’re passionate about and that reflect the diversity of tastes of our staff and guests. We currently have six wines in the 18th Street portfolio: a single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from  Dry Creek Valley, an elegant Pinot Noir from Marin County, a juicy Barbera from Lodi, a luscious Syrah made for us by Copain Cellars, a spicy Sonoma County Zinfandel, and a classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendocino County.  We’ve priced our 18th Street wine collection to be budget friendly–all are below $20–so that they truly can be the wine you look to as a compliment to your every meal.

Wine Events at 18 Reasons

At our community space 18 Reasons we offer many opportunities for our guests to taste, discuss, and learn about wine. Check the 18 Reasons calendar for upcoming wine events.

We could talk about wine all day! Send an email to Trac.
