Fat Grape Winery
Though wine has been made for centuries, a lot has changed since the early days. Now, additives and preservatives are blended into many wines, often affecting the taste and smell along the way. Fortunately, that’s not the way they do things at Fat Grape Winery. There, all wines are made the old-fashioned way. Helmed by winemaker Patrick Bowen, the winery creates more than a dozen wines—each made from Californian grapes—at their facility on Treasure Island's old Navy Brig. There, visitors can stop by to sample any of the wines—which they even have fresh on tap— or purchase bottles to take home.
