About Us

Philosophy

Come and check-in!

The Check-In is about more than wine…

It’s about connection, conversation and learning about the world and people through a local perspective. It’s a place to establish and maintain personal connections with other guests, owners and staff. A place to celebrate the Bay Area’s contribution to wine and world culture. It offers guests the opportunity to browse, be curious, ask questions and appreciate that the world of wine is as diverse as we all are.

A friendly ear and a tasty pour will always be ready for you when you check-in.


Wine is a passport to the world.”
