MSNBC recently visited Wingtip to film a segment of Your Business. If you’ve never had a chance to visit us in person, this is a great look at the store and Club.
Since 1908, the land Wingtip currently occupies has been the home of banks: first, the Bank of Italy, then the Bank of San Francisco, and most recently First Bank. But prior to the 1906 earthquake, other businesses inhabited our plot at Clay & Montgomery. Coincidentally, the businesses on our block in 1886 –128 years ago– are eerily similar to what Wingtip sells today. Here is the roster of businesses at the corner of Clay & Montgomery in 1886:

We know our customers already appreciate craftsmanship: suits made by hand rather than machines, benchmade shoes, hand-painted cufflinks, to name a few.

Kintsukuroi is the Japanese art of golden repair, which embraces the seams of broken pottery by fusing them in unmistakable gold. The underlying philosophy is that an artifact is more beautiful for having been broken and repaired, and this is the mindset that new Wingtip shoe-shiner Vasti Porter brings to her work.
It’s not everyday that we have an opportunity to experience a snapshot of history in a glass, with a particular focus on one of the most legendary vintages of our lifetime. Hailed as a vintage that changed everything, 1982 was stellar in Bordeaux, with praise coming from all angles, particularly from wine critic, Robert Parker. This vintage has perhaps done more to stir hype in the market, drastically affect prices, and influence a stylistic shift in winemaking that still resonates. Why do people still talk about this as one of the finest vintages of Bordeaux ever? Come find out as we taste through a well-curated lineup of stellar producers from the legendary vintage, including two 100 point wines and 3 of the 5 First Growths.
