The Natural Grocery Company’s new Prepared Food Annex (note address below) is now a destination for a sizable selection of organic and biodynamic wines and craft beers.

In celebration of the Annex’s inaugural holiday season, wine and beer director Sarah Valor is hosting a Grand Wine Tasting and Fall Price Crush on Sunday October 26th from 2pm-6pm. More than 35 wines from California, France, Italy, Austria, and Germany will be available for customers to try before they buy. Come taste (and buy) wines such as Chateau Le Bergey, Bordeaux, France; Señorío de P. Peciña, Rioja, Spain; or Vincent Chardonnay, Willamette Valley, Oregon. These and many others are available. Mix-and-match case discounts of 20 percent apply that day through the end of the October.

Wine tasting cost: $10 per person, free with purchase of a case (twelve 750ml bottles) on the 26th of October.

While you’re there, grab some Pugs Leap cheese (the only place you can find it outside of Napa) or cheese platters like the Olé, Olé (featuring all Spanish selections) and the Tutti Antipasti, which includes amazing Italian specialties as well as charcuterie. The Winners Table highlights the American Cheese Society’s award-winning cheeses. All platters include the accoutrements one expects with cheese and are priced to sell ($39.99 to $79.99 serving 5 to 25 guests).

A message from DPaul Brown:

Everyone knows the most important thing in real estate is location, location, location. But finding the right home is about more than just neighborhoods, schools, and transportation. It’s about the details in your daily life. Do you dine out a lot, or prefer to cook in? Do you want to walk to your favorite coffee shop or happy hour spot?

I know San Francisco from soup to nuts. Love to cook? Check out my map of our city’s amazing farmers markets; you might be surprised where they are. Want easy access to good food? I’ll find a spot close to your favorite pizza joint.

I love applying my knowledge of both the city’s culture and current real estate market conditions to find the perfect home for my clients. Contact me today, and I’ll help you find yours.
