Bi-Rite’s Wine, Beer and Spirits


Our wines are hand-selected by our buyers Trac, Matt, and John, 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.

They have been producing wine for over 4,000 years, and yet Greek wines as a category remain a mystery to American wine drinkers. But don’t shy away from the unfamiliar; there are great wines (and … Continue Reading

Vinos de Mezcal: Tradition and Terroir in Oaxaca‏

The roasted maguey plant (pronounced mah-gay), or agave, has been a staple of the Oaxacan diet for thousands of years. Whether or not native Mexicans learned to distill before the Spanish conquest is debated, but the Spaniards do get credit for bringing Filipinos to Central America via the Manila/Acapulco shipping … Continue Reading
