Fresh off a major reno, The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco and winemaker Jean-Charles Boisset have joined forces on a new tasting lounge in the hotel's lobby.

The JCB Tasting Lounge, which is now open to the public, offers wine tastings and lite fare, as well as its own retail boutique. 

Exclusive wine tasting flights range from $50 to $100 per person, and offer wines from the Boisset Collection along with specially curated food options from Chef de Cuisine Michael Rotondo of the hotel's restaurant, Parallel 37. 

At the retail boutique, a selection of gifts ranging from JCB-branded items such as custom-designed jewelry, candles, wine accessories and perfumes, to select merchandise from Baccarat, Christofle, Bernardaud, and Goyard are available for purchase.

The tasting loung is also available as a private event space for up to 14 guests. It has an eight-person sit down table, four-person bar, and two banquets. The Tasting Lounge is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
