About Decant SF

DECANTsf tastes wine BLIND.

Our goal is to remove any personal bias on producer or reputation and taste primarily for QUALITY and VALUE. This is to ensure to our clients that every bottle selected on the shelves at DECANTsf is hand-picked and vetted, and gives them the best bang for their buck.

WE ONLY ACCEPT WINES FROM SUSTAINABLY FARMED VINEYARDS. Organic and Biodynamic are preferred, but certification is not necessary. We are always on the hunt to diversify representation on our shelves, and often carry wines made by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and women-identifying winemakers.

We adore natural wine, but we don’t like (or sel) poorly-made, dirty “natty” wines.

We are very interested in pop-ups
and collaborations with Bay Area artisans creating consumables or
beautiful things! We also love books and snacks, water and kombucha, tea and chocolate, etc. If you have a project you think might be a good fit for the shop, please contact us!

DECANTsf is owned and operated by Cara Patricia Higgins & Simryn Grewal. Learn more about us here.
