WINEMAKER WEDNESDAY at the Bar

Winemaker Cory Michal of Fallon Place Wines returns to Fig & Thistle to pour a flight of his beautifully elegant wines made right here in San Francisco. A great opportunity to meet the winemaker and talk about urban winemaking life and taste through some very small, small, small production wines. I believe there were only 65 cases of the Zinfandel made that we’ll be pouring that night.

TRUNDLE BAR AT THE MARKET

trundle.jpg

Everyone’s favorite metal pop up wine bar is back in all its Trundle glory for 2019. There are a couple of changes… 1. Trundle is moving to THE MARKET so don’t show up at the bar expecting fast music and cheap wine. 2. Trundle is moving to THE MARKET, I just really want to reiterate this because I don’t want to hear any complaints about how you went to the bar. 3. Trundle will be on the LAST MONDAY of the month from now on. 4. BRING CASH for Billy’s cash box wines, No cash. No special selection for you. 5.Bring cash for Trundle shirts… he may or may not have new ones made, but if there are no shirts at least you have cash for the cash box wines. See you guys on Thursday.
