We stumbled upon Topel after Thumbprint since we wanted to try one more winery before heading back to SF. Since Thumbprint was so good, having Topel after Thumbprint just felt very... ordinary.  We got the Winemaker Special Flight and although the wines weren't bad, none particularly stood out either. Interesting since they have won various awards for a couple of their wines, as displayed by the ribbons they put in front bottles that won an award.

The service was very very plain. Yes, plain. The sommelier just poured when needed, never broke a smile, and didn't say much the whole time we were there. It's not terrible, but not great. So, I'd say it's just... okay.


Wine: 3/5
Service: 2/5
Ambiance: 3/5
Overall: 2/5
Highlight: Nothing.
Value: It is okay, but not a winery I would recommend. You can get more bang for the buck at Thumbprint a few blocks away.
