Wine and Cocktails

We believe wine is one of the great pleasures of life.

When the first PlumpJack Cafe opened in 1994, they became the only top restaurant in San Francisco to sell wine at retail prices. Today, value continues to be a cornerstone of the PlumpJack wine program at all of our properties. Our extensive wine list and wines by-the-glass program are hand-selected by the chef and wine director for your enjoyment.

Our culinary and wine team continues to gather accolades, including Wine Spectator's "Best of" Award of Excellence for our wine list.


PlumpJack Cafe has a long-standing reputation as serving some of the best cocktails in North Lake Tahoe and definitely THE best in Squaw Valley. One reason is due to our knowledgeable and approachable bar team headed by Bar Man Jake Spero. Jake has been a force behind the bar at PlumpJack Cafe since 2005. He’s the founder of Mountain Beverage Solutions, LLC, a company elevating the drink culture in mountain resort communities. He is also the Lake Tahoe ambassador for the United States Bartender’s Guild (USBG), and has sommelier certification through the Guild of Master Sommeliers. Jake is passionate about the exciting world of beer, wine, and spirits, and even more passionate about serving our diverse customers, from longstanding regulars to people visiting Squaw for the first time.
