Birba is a neighborhood wine bar in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley, owned and operated by sommelier extraordinaire, Angie Valgiusti. Set off the beaten path of Hayes Valley’s main drags, Birba reminds you of that secret little wine bar you discovered while roaming the alleyways of Barcelona, or the cobblestoned roads of Paris. The team is knowledgeable, approachable and chatty - and with grape varieties like juhfark and merenzao on the list, Birba lends itself to a constant conversation. While Valgiusti is all about the wine, Birba itself is just that friendly, social gathering place where you can enjoy a glass of vino, catch up with friends and neighbors and maybe hear a little Beyoncé or Nina Simone while you’re at it.
