- I turned in to see a narrow driveway lined with fenced cubicles draped in blue tarps. Each large square fenced cubicle housed a business. Many of the businesses seemed to be related to wine. After locating Fine Wines and entering the blue tarped cubicle, to my surprise, I found a free standing building inside the space. Once inside, the industrial feel of the pier faded away and I was standing in a tastefully decorated office space.
While inside I looked out the window that opened up to the bay. A large metal door stood open to expose the pier across the water. The view revealed old abandoned railroad tracks that had been used to load cargo directly from ship to rails many years ago. Glancing back towards the city, the view highlighted a very famous landmark Coit Tower. This was such a surprise to discover this site so rich in history, a side of San Francisco I had never seen or experienced. Our meeting began and they were very positive about my wine. I asked permission to blog about their unique location, they granted my request and I hope I will be returning in the years to come.
