My wife and I am visiting the city for a couple of days from LA and, as we're going to Marin anyway, I thought it would be nice to have lunch at Hog Island Oyster Company but I will need to bring my own wine.
Is there a (good) wine shop near Union Square? We are staying at the Maxwell on Geary.
The following is a totally separate question (but maybe wine people will be able to answer): has anyone tried 1996 Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee? We have dinner plans for Chez Panisse and I was thinking of bringing this bottle to open after we order a 1/2 btl. of white.
