In December of 2016, after 11 years, owners Jerry Cooper and his partner of 26 years Christopher Von Laufen handed over the helm at Swirl to longtime employee Casey Bowers and his girlfriend Sabeen Minns. 

Bowers, who began working at Swirl in 2011, studied wine and viticulture at Cal Poly and is a winemaker. He has been the Wine and Spirits buyer at Swirl since 2013 and has also attained a CSW and CSS.

Sabeen has always had a passion for wine and is continuing to grow her knowledge in wine making and wine production.

Casey and  Max (General manager) have assembled a strong edit of international, eclectic wines that spotlight lesser-known grapes and regions from sustainable, family owned wineries.  The lineup features selections from California, Spain, Argentina, France and Italy.

Swirl on Castro features a great selection of Belgian style beers, as well as a strong selection of artisan spirits from around the world.

The wine bar is open nightly, with a selection of 20 wines to taste.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
