Bar Bambino, Flour + Water, Heart, Farina, Bi-Rite Market, Foreign Cinema, Heirloom and Delfina represent the Mission District during this year’s Natural Wine Week, meaning that this compact, vibrant neighborhood might just boast the highest concentration of retail and restaurant sources for natural wine from August 23-29 in, well…, just about anyplace.
Two events, both sure to be a really good time, anchor the week’s activities in this part of town. First up Tuesday, August 24th from 5-10pm, Alex Finberg and the team at Farina are hosting Arianna Occhipinti for a dinner featuring her stellar Sicilian wines. So come on down to meet Arianna an learn what frapatto is all about. Regular reservations are being accepted, so please call ahead — this night will likely book up.
