Located in Presidio Neighborhood, Silver Wines is the personal label of Benjamin Silver. This winemaker produces Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Nebbiolo, and two proprietary blends. This location is also a barrel room and production area. We found Benjamin Silver pouring behind the counter during an unannounced visit. Don't miss the opportunity to inquire about the production process or ask questions about Benjamin's activities. This location is best for small groups and the bar is standing only. The tasting fee is $10 and a few snacks are available for sale. Silver Wines is located south of Funk Zone, and inconspicuously sits between two residences. Silver Wines is best paired with Carr Winery or Whitcraft Winery due to its geographical location.

  • 2011 Chardonnay
    Lemon, lavender, butterscotch, and cinnamon. Grapefruit, honeydew melon and mineral notes, very smooth, with great acidity. Finish is crisp with lingering lemon flavors.
  • 2010 El Ojo Blanco Cuvee Uno
    White peach, apricot, pear, ginger & honey. Crisp minerality augmented by a mere 13.alcohol. Treat your delicate fish right, or use with a wide array of appetizers! This is a delicious, versatile white wine at a very good price!
  • 2009 I Tre Figli
    Aromas recall rosemary-crusted beef, boysenberry, sweet tar and, thanks to the oak-aging, both caramel and vanilla. The rich palate shows black cherry, black raspberry and a pinch of tarragon.
  • 2013 Nebbiolo
  • 2010 Nebbiolo
    Benjamin Silver offers a very traditional tar and roses nose on this solid wine, with extra aromas of leather, iron, pipe smoke, iodine and beef jerky. The palate shows white pepper, roasted fennel and tight pomegranate fruit, with some gaminess and tobacco leaf, as well as grippy tannins that will continue to soften with time.
  • 2013 Pinot Noir
  • 2009 Pinot Noir
  • 2010 Pinot Noir "mon premier amour"
    Sourced from my favorite vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley, this vineyard's personality and elegance is so unique it stands out from all others in the area.
  • 2010 Pinot Noir Coteau Palmer
    with fascinating aromas of exotic red fruits, sesame oil, maple syrup, hoisin sauce, Korean BBQ spareribs and smoked, coffee crusted meats. It's in your face on the palate too, with pomegranate and rhubarb ripeness mixing into espresso and meatiness. Go with the smoked & grilled meats, rack of lamb, or ideally a Thanksgiving meal.
  • 2009 Pinot Noir Cuvee Joshua Thomas
  • 2011 Pinot Noir Cuvee Leah Mae
    The wine combines both the richer, ripe style of Pinot Noir with an under-ripe, herbaceous strategy. Dill, thyme, bay leaf and camphor show on the nose, as does dense elderberry and cranberry. The palate offers much woody intensity as well as green olives, baked tomatoes, peppercorns and annatto seeds, yet also shows baked black plum as the core fruit. Quite an intriguing combo.
  • 2009 Saviezza
    Aromatics: Ripe black plums, blackberry fruit, cola, anise, cinnamon spice with a hint of sweetness from oak.

    Body: Ripe dark fruit flavors and intense warm spices fill the mid palate,. The tannin is fantastically integrated with the fruit, forming a bigger structured wine than normal. This ball of fruit & spice carries into the finish.
  • Silver Fifty Cask Tawny Dessert Wine - 500ml
    It has class and elegance, it even has style. Whether you pair it with a stinky cheese or a sweet dessert, or if you pair it with itself, this wine is guaranteed to make new friends.
  • 2005 Silver I Tre Figli
    The Cabernet Sauvignon forms the structure and the Sangiovese supple plum fruit. Cabernet Franc adds spice and high floral notes as well as focusing the midpalate. An intriguing layered, powerful ball of black plums, mixed berries, spice and wood.
  • 2009 Syrah
    Grape jelly, pipe smoke, lilac cologne, woody incense and a bit of tar show in the nose of this wine. Flavors of blackberry, wet tobacco, gamy meats and beef jerky are pleasantly rustic.
  • 2010 Trentotto File Syrah
    Beautiful aromas of roasted pork in a blackberry-licorice reduction sauce pick up a bit of grape candy before hitting the palate with black pepper, blueberries and solid tannins.
