LIT­TLE VINE

Where San Francisco - - Where now -

This cozy North Beach gro­cer has an im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of wines and cheeses for its size. The cheese case is stocked with about 75 va­ri­eties, with a fo­cus on Amer­i­can ar­ti­san cheese­mak­ers, in­clud­ing sev­eral lo­cal ones. A wine col­lec­tion of 375 la­bels—many of which are un­der $25— fa­vors small Cal­i­for­nia winer­ies. One Sonoma Coast wine in par­tic­u­lar—a Pinot Noir from Peay Vine­yards called Cep—pairs per­fectly with Piper’s Pyra­mid, a creamy goat’s milk cheese from In­di­ana’s Capri­cole Cheese Com­pany. On sunny days, take your pur­chase to nearby Wash­ing­ton Square Park for a pic­nic in the heart of North Beach. 1541 Grant Ave., 415.738.2221, shoplit­tlevine.com
