Great experience. Wine is 'on tap' and if you want to take it home, you get refillable/returnable bottles. A different, but fun experience. Also, good food in the market that you can eat while you taste.

I highly suggest each person you are going with buy their own groupon. This way you can each taste 6 of the Periscope Cellars wines not to mention get the most bang for your buck. Periscope is located within Swan's Market, which I'd also never been to. All of Swan's Market is pretty cool, I'm glad this groupon introduced me to a new location. All of that aside, THE WINE IS FANTASTIC!!! I went with a friend of mine and truly enjoyed all of the wines we sampled, as well as the ambiance, and everyone we met at the tasting bar. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS GROUPON AND PERISCOPE CELLARS!

Haven't been back yet because I just went this weekend but I will definitely be back! Great place and great company. He knows his wine and loved this deal! Great wine is a plus :] There's also a Mexican food restaurant in joint connection so you can grab some great high quality food but it doesn't beat the wine! Cant wait to go back!

What fun! Like the BYOB wine shops in France and Italy. All the wines had a very nice, easy finish. A great addition to Oak Town.

Yes. We love Brandon's wines! Unfortunately, we could not purchase bottles from the tasting "menu" only from the "other" menu. Prevented us from buying any wine-you want to taste what you are purchasing!

From Our Editors

In the past, Brendan Eliason's oenophilia has landed him gigs at David Coffaro Winery in Dry Creek and Va de Vi Bistro & Wine Bar in Walnut Creek. These days, he mans Periscope Cellars, which stocks an impressive selection of Californian wines. Available by the bottle or from up to 10 taps, the tasting room showcases everything from pinot noirs and zinfandels to mulled wine in winter.

Pours pair perfectly with gourmet bites from the surrounding Swan’s Market; Rosamunde Sausage Grill, for instance, is just steps away. Of course, Periscope's libations are also available to go in refillable 500ml bottles or unlimited handfuls.
