Roam, the unassuming gourmet burger shop on San Francisco’s Union Street, pleasantly surprised the judges with a huge wine on tap win. As wine on tap is up-and-coming, there are still some kinks to work out in terms of getting a quality experience each time you hit the tap. Rarely have I liked all of the wines on tap I’ve tried in one locale, but Roam pulled through victoriously with all four of their wine offerings.
Roam provides a wine drinking experience similar to any by-the-glass experience in a wine bar.
’10 Viansa Pinot Grigio: A classic, summery pinot grigio from Sonoma
’09 Bjornstad Chardonnay: A lovely Chardonnay but perhaps not so worthy of it’s $11 price tag per glass
’09 Ballentine Zinfindel: Light and fruity and oh-so-good with a burger such as the Pacific Blue Burger
’07 Côte du Village Merlot: No bad merlot rap with this choice!
Roam has got the vibe right for wine on tap, too. With its communal-style seating and super laid-back demeanor, it allows wine on tap to be enjoyed as it should be – shared amongst great friends. Carafes can easily be passed around the table and refills are highly encouraged.
