Where to purchase verjus in San Francisco?

I see that I can order online from Terra Sonoma, but has anyone come across verjus in the city in any stores? I haven't been able to find it at Williams-Sonoma or Sur La Table.

Thanks for any leads!

  1. I just tried some at Navarro winery in Philo, maybe try their website if you don't mind mail delivery.

    1. I have used Navarro Verjus for years but not recently and used to buy it in Berkeley but am having trouble remembering where...maybe call Nararro directly and see who sells it?

        I bought mine at Andronico's Berkeley.
        Try
        1200 Irving Street

          Thanks! I didn't even think to check Andronico's.

            Just left Solano A's, Maggie Beer verjuice, Aussie spelling, 375 ml $12.99.

            1. re: wolfe

              Anyone try the Maggie beers? They also have at Village Cheese Shop in Palo Alto, but I know some Verjus is pretty bad.

                I have used it for salad dressing and deglazing with no complaints.

      2. Whole foods ,Rainbow, Good Life in Bernal probably Luccas on Haight.

        1. The Pasta Shop in the Rockridge Market Hall in Oakland usually has Verjus.

          1. Navarro's is good. I tried Fusion once and it was kind of nasty.

            1. Called Navarro and they only deliver to one shop now...Mill Valley Market (415 388-3222). Called them and they don't have it but may later in week and can add it to their next order. Otherwise, Navarro ships it $11.00 per plus 13.00 shipping for 1-3 bottles.

              Navarro Vineyards 800 537-9463

              1. Thanks gang - I picked up the Aussie stuff at Andronico's in SF last weekend. I didn't end up making the dish I had planned so I haven't used it yet, but I did give it a taste and I think it'll end up working for my needs.
                Much appreciated!

                  To quote Flanders and Swann,"And once it's been opened, you know it won't keep." Be sure to put it in the Fridgedaire.
