About This Luminary

David Lynch

Sommelier, Author, Restaurateur

David Lynch is a sommelier, author and the owner of St. Vincent, San Francisco's acclaimed Mission District tavern. David draws inspiration from all over the world in making his wine selections, but Italy remains a first love. He was most recently the Wine Director of San Francisco's Michelin-starred Quince and its sibling, Cotogna, and was named 2011 Wine Director of the Year by San Francisco magazine.

David Lynch Supports

La Cocina

La Cocina is a ground-breaking business incubator designed to reduce the obstacles that often prevent entrepreneurs from creating successful and sustainable small businesses. They are located in San Francisco's Mission District, an ethnically diverse and economically vulnerable neighborhood that thrives in part due to the many small, informal businesses that serve the community. The mission of La Cocina is to cultivate low-income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses by providing affordable commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance and access to market and capital opportunities. Their vision is that entrepreneurs will become economically self-sufficient and contribute to a vibrant economy doing what they love to do.
