Run by young husband-and-wife team Josiah Baldivino (of the Michael Mina Group) and Stevie Stacionis, Bay Grape is equal parts wine shop and tasting room. The selection ranges from cider to Belgian beer to natural wine to local sodas. Bottles can be consumed on the airy premises at the big communal table for a $5 corkage fee alongside cheese and charcuterie plates if you want to make an afternoon of it (and you should).

What to drink
