Farmstead’s wine list is Napa Valley-centric, no question about that. It has many known names as well as some of Northern California’s finest artisan producers. However, it is sprinkled with enough international selections to attract not only visitors but also locals who want to broaden their horizons.
Nine years ago, Stephanie and Keith McCardell opened Que Syrah Wine Bar on West Portal Avenue. Since it is not in the center of the city or that close to the ocean, it hasn’t been a major tourist destination but anyone who wants to taste some wine with the locals should consider paying a visit.
