Quince Wine List

About Quince

Quince is a San Francisco institution in Jackson Square owned and operated by Chefs Michael and Lindsey Tusk that features California cuisine at its finest: inspired daily creations from produce sourced directly from Fresh Run Farm. The three-star Michelin-rated restaurant offers an 8-10 course menu with optional beverage pairings in the main dining room or an abbreviated seasonal tasting menu in a more casual salon area.

About the Quince Wine List

Over the course of 74 pages Wine Director Matt Cirne (also a partner at new adjacent wine bar Verjus) judiciously pulls favorite examples from a broad swathe of regions, with a notable pass through California Cabernet Sauvignon (think verticals from Forman, Matthiasson…Opus One) and Piedmont reds for his list. He has created a stack of nebbiolo from producers like G. Conterno and Produttori del Barbaresco, some of them with a half century of age. There is more attention on Burgundy, Bordeaux, and the Rhône; less so on, say, Jura and Loire. This decided focus allows the more robust areas of the list to say more.
