About Us

Our Story

A Grape in the Fog is a charming wine bar in Pacifica, California, where we celebrate the best of coastal living and lovely boutique wines from around the world. Located one block from Rockaway Beach, we boast a constantly changing wine menu, available by the glass, flight or bottle.

From the Tuscan seaside-inspired décor to our friendly and knowledgeable staff, we have created the perfect place for Pacifica locals and visitors alike to share amazing wine (or perhaps one of our craft-style beers), and relax with friends. We also invite you to enjoy one of our cheese or charcuterie plates from our small plate menu. Join us for live music every weekend and check out our many special events such as Quiz Night and After-Market.
