This place is great. I bought a bottle of fernet there, and got a nice little buzz rolling tasting their wines before I went to see the Dodgers beat up on the Giants. I especially like the bearded Mexican who works there. He knows his sh*t and looks like he comes from a fantastic line of family genes.

I had to laugh at the 4 & 5 star reviews of Coit Liquor.
These reviewers must have never been to any other wine shop other than Coit Liquor.
I'm from Southern Calif. and I come up to San Francisco every year to the Mac World Convention. I have been a wine collector and wine amateur for 25 years. A sub hobby of mine is visiting wine shops. I have visited virtually every wine shop in So. Cal from San Diego to Santa Barbara, so I know what I speak. Coit Liquor has a very poor selection and high prices (which is understandable). I went in there on January 15th and found virtually nothing interesting at all. Nothing off the beaten track at all. No German wines, no Alsace wines, no Loire Valley wines, nothing! Sorry, but if you want to see a real wine shop go to K & L wines (638 4th St. San Francisco. 415-896-1734). And no, I don't work for them.

This place has wine tastings daily with great wines available. The owners have a lot of pride in their business and are very attentive. Definitely come here for a good wine selection and good service. Prices are pretty good too.

I have found that Coit can find great and hard to find wines for me. I really do value Coit Liquors and the service is great. I am in restaurants out of California all the time and the managers do not believe the wines that I am picking up from Coit.

I also like the ease of emailing Coit and they find what I want with a same day or next day response.

I don't drink at all, but many of my friends do. I tagged along with some of them several times, and they seem to like Coit Liquor a lot. I don't have to be a alcoholic to tell that the staff there are really nice, and my friends seem to strike up conversations with them easily. My friends tell me that the prices there are as good as the employees who work there. Looks like a nice wine store, unlike most liquor "corner" stores that I have been to.

Coit is one of the best wine shops in San Francisco, to my mind specializing in fairly common but "quality" selections in the midpriced to middle-high range (say from $15 to $75) across most Californian and Australian varietals - especially Cab, Pinot, Chard, Shiraz/Zin - with a limited but usually very intriguing selection of good quality inexpensive to very pricey Italians from the Piedmonte and Tuscany (think interesting Langhe's up to some pretty pricey Brunellos). A bit more limited in French, German/Australian, Spanish last time I was in. And of course you'll find a reasonable selection of good value wines at the front, though you might do as well there at the Marina Safeway or Whole Foods. The really unique, great-value selections they were known for slipped a bit when Steve Sherman left several years back (now over at William Cross), but the new buyer brought in last year seems to be bringing the quality-to-price ratio back up. If you want access to some occasional high-end allocations, like top California Cabs, the best Italians and Australians, and the occasional top French bottles, make sure you sign up on their mailing list kept at the front of the shop.

Great service. Great wine selection. If you're new to the wine scene and need help picking between a Chardonnay and a Reisling, this is the place to go for recommendations and to gain some wine knowledge. However, it's a bit on the pricey side. Safeway offers a much cheaper selection.
