Foodie Chap with Debbie Zachareas

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS RADIO) — "I'll have the $1200 bottle of Screaming Eagle please " — Not something you usually hear from a sports fan at a Basketball Arena, well not until recently with the opening of the new 18 000 seat arena Chase Center and new home for the Golden State Warriors. 

Meet Debbie Zachareas who with partner Peter Granoff  ( Wine Merchant at SF Ferry Building & Oxbow Market) is responsible for curating the wine program at the Mission Bay Chase Center. The wine program includes a hundred or so wines; everything from a $12 can of Zinfandel to $1000 plus bottles of Napa Cabernet. From the cheap seats to the fancy suites Debbie and the wine team have you covered.

"This is an amazing opportunity to help people discover new wines old world and new and for me to share some of my favorites. There is something for every palate here and price point. The lists will change often so there will be a revolving choice of wines for fans to enjoy."

It's a busy time for Debbie and partners with the recently opening of a Cheese & Wine store and bar nearby in Mission Bay and the soon to open Mission Bay Wine Bar at Thrive City. For wine lovers there will be no storage of spots to imbibe with unrivaled wine lists for all.
