Chris & Lindsey Wanner are the founders and proprietors of West Coast Wine • Cheese. Before opening the doors on their original San Francisco location in October of 2014, Chris spent 15 years in wine and spirits sales in the Bay Area, working mostly for or with wineries in California, Oregon or Washington.
During those years he developed numerous relationships and friendships with winemakers and proprietors who share his passion for wine and for being good stewards of the land. These relationships reinforced Chris’ belief that wines from the West Coast are just as good, if not better, than wines from anywhere else in the world. These relationships are the very core of the business today. They are the people and places that make the wines, along with their stories, which are shared everyday at West Coast.
Four years, and three Wine Spectator 'Award of Excellence' honors later, West Coast Wine • Cheese continues to showcase regional wines by serving up premium experiences in a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere.
