The Rock Wall Wine Company represents a new chapter in the East Bay, urban winemaking scene, offering wine lovers one of the most unique experiences in the wine world. Established in 2008 by a small group of wine industry veterans, including consulting winemaker Kent Rosenblum, daughter and winemaker Shauna Rosenblum, at just 30 years of age, has expanded the family winemaking business with the same love and commitment to not only Zinfandel but the slew of international varietals such as Tannat, Teroldego and Montepulciano that appeal to the new wave of “millennial” wine drinkers and wine enthusiasts looking for a new experience.
Ideally situated along with waterfront in Alameda, California, the winery boasts spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline from across the bay. Housed in a converted 40,000 square-foot airplane hangar, the Rock Wall Wine Company is located on what was once a Naval Air Base. Also known as “Building 24,” the hangar is due north of a defensive rock wall, which made up the perimeter of the base. Taking their name from this protective wall, the Rock Wall winery building has been retrofitted with state-of-the-art winemaking equipment.
In May 2011 Rock Wall unveiled a beuatiful new tasting room, an extension next to the original hangar, welcoming visitors with luxurious bamboo flooring, a granite counter top bar and an outdoor deck, perfectly situated for taking in city skyline views. Adjacent to the tasting room is a full-service chef’s kitchen and a 3,000 square foot “VIP Dome,” capable of hosting medium-scale events up to 180 people. Food from Scolari's at the Point is available during tasting room hours. The tasting room is open Monday-Friday 12:00-8:00pm and Saturday and Sunday 12:00-6:00pm.
The Rock Wall Wine Company is all about continuing the legacy of urban winemaking as well as providing an environment whereby making, tasting and learning about wine is fun!
