We had a great time at Bacchus and Venus. The pourer was friendly and provided us with much needed information about our furter California travels. The selection of wines that we decided on were excellent.

My mother and I were tourists in Sausalito, CA recently, enjoying the incredible shops and restaurants along Bridgeway Street. Combined, we have decades of consumer shopping experience and we were impressed by the high level of customer service and professionalism of the shop keepers and restaurant staff in the town. That all changed when we entered Bacchus and Venus, when we were shocked by the repulsive behavior of the owner, Marcy Roth.

Upon entering the store, we were immediately drawn to the art and various gift items on display ?? so much so, that I planned to order more than one large, expensive item that would have been impossible to take back to the East Coast with me or to ship on my own.

When I asked some questions and jotted down the specific names of the items (so that I could remember what I would be ordering when I called back), she promptly kicked us out of her store, venting her rage and anger on us about the state of the economy and accusing us of taking information to find the same items online with another retailer.

Maybe she missed her session with her therapist this week, or maybe she somehow missed the HUGE shopping bag that I was carrying with me from shopping in Sausalito (obviously not online), but either way, my mother and I have never been so mistreated by any retailer period, let alone one whom we were planning to spend a significant sum of money with.

If she is that emotionally unstable as a business owner to go as far as grossly mistreating her potential customers and making outrageous accusations that are simply not true, perhaps she should choose another line of work. The sad part of this ridiculous story is that my mother and I had planned to do a lot more shopping after that, but decided to call it a day after this experience ?? it was an unnecessary loss to the other very professional and deserving businesses that we could have patronized.

When visiting Sausalito, trying wines from the local California vineyards is a must. Bacchus & Venus is located downtown among the cute shops and offers a large selection of wines and other merchandise. A wine tasting is available each day, but there is a charge to try whatever 4 wines have been selected for the day. The shop ships to all 50 states if you find bottles you like but choose not to haul them back on the plane.

PROS: Good location, cute shop
CONS: Wine tasting fee should be waived if a purchase is made
