A Winery ― on Treasure Island? Taste for Yourself This Saturday

Winery tour may include dog.

Treasure Island may sound like the most unlikely place for a winery, but the more you think about it, the location makes sense: cheap warehouse space, bay-cooled climate, easy access to vineyards and drinkers.

One of the island's few urban wineries, VIE, sells its wines through Winery Collective, a collective tasting room near Fisherman's Wharf. Warehouse mate Treasure Island Wines, owned by brothers Paul and James Mirowski, has built its brand on the island location; the winery's logo is crossed pirate swords (get it?).
