PlumpJack’s Wine Program

The PlumpJack wine program began with the premise that wine is one of life's great pleasures and should be enjoyed as often as possible to complete the dining experience. When we launched our wine pricing policy back in 1994 it immediately made news when PlumpJack Cafe became the only top restaurant in San Francisco to sell wine at retail prices.

Today, value continues to be a cornerstone of the PlumpJack wine program at ALL of our restaurants! Our selection of hard-to-find Californian wines, extensive wines by the glass, and collectible greats from Europe and the rest of the New World have garnered critical acclaim and a loyal following.

Events & Happenings

Join us Tuesdays from 9-11pm as musicians perform a selection of funk, soul, and rock to accompany your post-dinner wine down.
