Since 2004, Tucos Wine Market & Cafe has been hand picking a dream team of some the finest food and wine producers in the world, many of whom are our neighbors here in Northern California. Our menus and recipes are driven by these world-class ingredients: real food without too much fuss or pretense, but with lots of pride and creativity, and a goal of delivering flavors and textures that make it an event. Our retail market allows you to take these products home and recreate these experiences for yourself. Too good to be true? Where did NY Times best selling food writer, [WWW]Michael Pollan, eat after his recent sold out lecture at The Mondavi Center? Tucos. Who served lunch to the visiting culinary students from [WWW]Slow Food's University of Gastronomic Sciences (an International powerhouse on world food)? Tucos. Who served lunch at Community Alliance of Family Farmers’ (CAFF) groundbreaking workshops, featured in the NY Times for changing the food served at some of the nation’s largest institutional kitchens? Tucos. If you still don’t believe us, come see for yourself. A note about the name: though many are tempted to add an apostrophe and call the place "Tuco's" as if it were a restaurant owned by Tuco, the name does not have an apostrophe (and the owner's name is Pru). The name "Tucos" comes from Pru's daughter, who mispronounced the Portuguese word for juice, "suco," as "tucos" when she was young.
