Winetasting in San Francisco

Yesterday, I joined some friends at Cav Wine Bar. This is a great after work spot. Cav has an interesting wine list as well as tasty small plates to accompany your wine.

I enjoyed a 10 year old Riesling from Germany, a full-bodied Oregon Pinot Noir, and a varietal from Australia that I had never heard of until yesterday. Wines are available by the glass and bottle. In addition, a special wine flight is offered each week. If you go with a friend who prefers fermented grain, beers are also offered.

To accompany your wine, Cav offers both small and large plates. We sampled an array of small plates and enjoyed each of them. We particularly enjoyed dipping bread, walnuts, and apricots into the Gratinee Fondue for two.

Cav is located at 1666 Market Street and opens at 5:30. The kitchen is open until 11:00 pm Monday to Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday.
