What is unique about The Winery SF?

Location: The Winery SF is one of the few (if not the only) venues in San Francisco where you can have your ceremony directly on the San Francisco Bay waterfront and walk right to your reception. This makes The Winery SF a popular venue for those looking for wedding ceremony and reception all in one place. Our waterfront location along with our central location to not only San Francisco, but also to those in the East Bay, Peninsula and Marin County, make The Winery SF

Views: The Winery SF is located on the south shore San Francisco’s Treasure Island with spectacular views of the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco city skyline in the background. The Winery SF allows the couple to have their wedding photos along the waterfront with, what is called, the “postcard view of San Francisco” in the background. These one-of-a-kind views allow The Winery SF to offer the couple one of the most photogenic weddings in the Bay Area.

Historic Venue: The Winery SF is located in a large warehouse originally built by the US Navy when they occupied San Francisco’s Treasure Island. The Winery SF has transformed this historic building into San Francisco’s first “fully fledged winery” as named by Sunset Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Urban Movements on the West Coast” by Sunset Magazine. The Winery SF has a one-of-a-kind ambiance and elegance of an urban winery located directly on the San Francisco Bay waterfront.

Large “Clear Span” Room with High Ceiling: Our barrel room is a “clear span” room which means that it does not have any pillar in the middle of the room. Unlike many warehouses in San Francisco, our winery is housed in a warehouse without pillars that restrict the view of guests and restrict the layout of the event. This design allow every guest to have a clear view of the couple and allow people to easily navigate throughout the event. This is a huge benefit which people don’t often think about until the event actually occurs.

No Noise Ordinance Restrictions: Most venues in San Francisco have a 10:00pm noise ordinance and must either end the event at 10:00pm or take the volume down to a background music level at 10:00pm. The Winery SF is located in a commercial zone with no residence within a mile of the venue and is not affected by the San Francisco Noise Ordinance – so we can party full-force until mid-night and beyond!

No Security Requirements: Since The Winery SF is located in a commercial zone with no residence within a mile of the venue, we don’t have the same issues that most venues in SOMA, Dogpatch, the Mission and other areas of San Francisco have. Therefore, we don’t require the 2-3 security guards that most venues do, saving the couple about $1000 in cost (that don’t often show up in many venue’s initial quotes).

Free Parking: We are one of the few (if not the only) venue is San Francisco with Free Parking for all of your guests. This typically saves a couple $1000-$2000 in parking or valet serviced needed with most venues in San Francisco (and don’t often show up in many venue’s initial quotes).

Food Truck Friendly: The Winery SF is VERY food truck friendly. Whether you are interested in having your favorite food truck for an early appetizer, late-night snack or even for your main food service for a casual reception style wedding, The Winery SF is the perfect venue for your favorite food truck(s) to be a part of your wedding. With our large outdoor deck, the food truck(s) merely pull up and park next to our deck and begin serving. Our outdoor deck in lite and fully furnished, so you can have your favorite food truck(s) arrive at any time of the evening. And, since we have a large parking lot, there is no need to have someone pull a permit and do the 2 day posting required by the City of San Francisco in order to accommodate a food truck, saving you $200+ dollars in additional fees. Plus, since we have food trucks all of the time at The Winery SF, we can help you with the negotiations to help secure your favorite food truck(s) at a price which is affordable and fits your budget.

Dog/Pet Friendly: We love dogs and are a pet-friendly event venue. We often have pets as part of the wedding ceremony and reception (as evidenced by our photos). In addition, we host quarterly dog events at The Winery SF where owners and their “best friend” come and enjoy an afternoon tasting wine and enjoying free “dog treats” while getting discounts on wine tasting and wine bottles form us and our neighboring wineries. To get an invite on to our next quarterly dog event, sign up for our newsletter at http://www.winery-sf.com/mailing-list/.

No Preferred Vendor Requirement: The Winery SF does not have a Preferred Vendor list which forces you to use a small set of vendors. We do have a list of Suggested Vendors who we have enjoyed working with over the last 10 years, but we have no financial arrangement with them as most venues do with their Preferred Vendors. We find that keeping an open vendor policy lets the couple better craft and personalize their wedding with the vendor who best know their needs and thus eliminates the “cookie cutter” style wedding that most venues produce.

    Amazing COVID Venue! Beautiful Space!

    This was the 1st venue we looked at and, even though we checked out several more, we absolutely could not find a better venue for the wedding that we wanted! We booked in early 2019 for a summer 2020 wedding. Judy, Genevieve, and Brian were fantastic and super helpful. Judy alone has decades of wedding and event planning experience and we are so lucky that we had her on our team!

    Then, COVID hit and Judy was AMAZING at troubleshooting all of our concerns. Because they also have wine tasting and food on the weekends, they aren't strictly an event venue but also a restaurant business, which meant that they were allowed to remain open during COVID. We ended up greatly scaling down our wedding guest list and decided to move the entire event outside. Treasure Island can be cold and windy even in the summertime, so we also moved the wedding to earlier in the day. The space itself is gorgeous inside AND outside, so it was easy to create a special space fully outside.

    The Winery SF is an all-inclusive space (if you want it to be) and so we used their caterers and equipment (chairs, tables, linens, etc). Judy worked with us to have a variety of table sizes (2 tops, 4 tops, 6 tops) so that the few guests that were invited could sit with their own households. Food was set up buffet-style with servers serving the guests. We worked out a one-way path too, to keep our guests as socially distant as possible. There was sanitizer and soap in abundance and the entire staff were properly masked. We also used different chairs for the ceremony & reception to minimize cross contamination. Judy personally sanitized each chair before our wedding!

    It was WINDY and the entire staff was ready with weights and heavy duty supplies to keep things from flying away. Judy was also there to manage all of the vendors along with our wedding planner. Vendors were allowed to set up 6 hours before the wedding and also were allowed to pick up equipment the next day with no additional fees.

    We are SO HAPPY that we booked The Winery SF. No one, no guest or vendor, caught COVID at our wedding and we know it was absolutely because they were professional and agile. They really helped us pull off the perfect wedding!

    The Winery San Francisco's reply:

    Thank you Dianne. It was a pleasure working with you, your planner and wonderful family and guests. A wedding I will NEVER forget. Perfect in every aspect! Judy

    We had our wedding reception at The Winery SF and could not have been happier to celebrate here! We truly enjoyed our experience with the wedding planning - Jen Knecht is the absolute best!! She really got to know my husband and I, and gave her expert advice while we decided what was best for our wedding.

    Jen is very professional, experienced, and always wants the best for us. She helped us create our dream wedding reception, and was there to make sure everything went as planned. It was so comforting to know Jen was available to answer all questions leading up to the wedding and to execute our plan so flawlessly on our wedding day! We highly recommend Jen Knecht as an experienced, fabulous wedding coordinator!

    We went with the in-house catering and were SO very pleased! Judy is the cook and caterer and is phenomenal! We are still getting compliments on the food from our wedding - absolutely delicious! We had a tasting beforehand and chose a nice variety for the wedding guests. Judy caters to people with dietary restrictions and offers plates such as vegan, vegetarian, etc. It was so nice to have an experienced cook like Judy handle all of the appetizers and meals for the wedding! She is very nice to work with!!

    The wine is delicious!! My husband and I joined the wine club as we were planning our wedding here. The staff at The Winery SF are so friendly, personable, and fun to be around! I recommend The Winery SF to all out of town visitors as they have delicious wine and you can not beat the location!! Best view of SF and the bay!

    I am so glad we went with The Winery SF for our June wedding. The coordinator (Jen) is so professional, responsive and helpful, it made the planning process fun. The wine is delicious, too! They have many linen colors to choose from and the lighting colors are very nice.

    The food is delicious! The caterer (Judy) is fantastic! Our guests were so pleased with the venue, location, ambiance, and food!! I recommend this vendor 100%!
