JAQK Cellars may truly be an antidote against all of the snootiness and unapproachability that exists in the wine world. The small label bottles eight of its own wines using grapes from Napa and Sonoma, but doesn’t stop there. Instead, those same winemakers pair their creations with selections of charcuterie, cheese and fruit from local purveyors, inside of their own Jackson Street tasting room which, perhaps as a nod to their likeability, is housed right inside their corporate offices. This is all much to the delight of the many birthday parties and other large groups who tend to populate the private weekday-only, appointment-only, space, where long wooden tables make for great gathering areas and a rooftop patio offers fantastic views of the city’s Transamerica building. A night out here may even have the winemakers present, and a bottle or two to take home will certainly spruce up a home cellar.
