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.
The Winery SF has been very fortunate to have been named:
"Top 5 Wedding Venues" in the Bay Area – ABC7 CityVoter A-List
“Top 10 Value for Wedding Venue in San Francisco” – yelp!
We look forward to the opportunity to host your wedding!
