History

In 1992, Gavin Newsom founded San Francisco's popular PlumpJack Wines on Fillmore Street on the principle of making wine buying more approachable in a friendly, non-intimidating manner to transform the wine purchasing experience into one of fun and discovery.

Since then, The PlumpJack Group portfolio has expanded to include a diverse collection of hospitality and lifestyle businesses including luxury resorts, award-winning wineries, popular restaurants and nightlife establishments, catering and retail establishments, as well as the PlumpJack Development Company.
