About Downtown Wine SF

Downtown Wine SF provides exclusive, limited production, artisan wines many of which are organic or sustainable directly to event and wedding planners, catering companies, and of course restaurants. We strive to be a different kind of wine broker.

Through longstanding relationships with many small (but mighty!) boutique wine producers, we have tasted and hand-selected an impressive array, offering the ability to bring many hard-to-find wines to our clients. We have successfully provided wines to events ranging from intimate weddings to the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival and everything in between.

In turn, we consult with you to help find precisely the right wines for your clients’ needs, whatever they may be. We have an excellent record and reputation of assisting event and wedding planners, caterers, businesses, and restaurants find the best wines for any type of scenario. The best news is because of our direct relationships with the winemakers, our selection and pricing is outstanding on unique, high-demand, often allocated, and hard-to find wines.

We genuinely value our Bay Area clients and community and we are always a phone call away. Downtown Wine SF will exceed your expectations!

Richard Sloan, Principal, broker

Growing up in the heart of California’s wine country, I developed a deep respect and love of winemaking. Surrounded by eager and talented friends involved in every aspect of the business was both educational and inspirational, allowing me to bring life-long knowledge to my clients. By offering a unique selection of wines, I am able to ‘pair’ my love for the product and process with my entrepreneurial spirit, creating a truly different kind of business that values personal relationships. Over the last few years I have successfully matched Downtown Wine SF’s offerings to many happy clients.

I am a music and futbol (soccer) fanatic and I love riding my Lambretta scooter around SF. I volunteer for the Neighborhood Parks Coalition and Friends of the Urban Forest and can often be found at the Sports Basement or walking my beloved Bulldog Buster at Crissy Field with my wife Libby.
