Rock Wall Wine Company presents: Wine & Chocolate "Matchmaking" with chocolatier Cocotutti!
Thursday, August 2, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Alameda, United States
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Ready for some serious wine and chocolate tasting?!
Wine and Chocolate: Matchmaking Services Needed!
Come help us pair up delicious Rock Wall wines with CocoTutti’s chocolate creations. Will Chardonnay find happiness with Fig (dressed up in roasted walnuts)? Or will dark, rich Cappuccino steal away her attention? Will Cabernet Sauvignon find true happiness with Blackberry Truffle? Or will her cousin, Raspberry Truffle win over his lively nature? And what will be the fate of the Monte Rosso Zinfandel and it’s cousin, the Zinfandel Dessert Port? Which of our sweet concoctions marry perfectly with these American classics? A named competitor or a “blind date”?
Come grab a glass and a box of playing pieces (chocolates) and let’s get gaming! Bring a date, or maybe find one there…. And if you find the perfect match, bring them home (the wine and chocolates, that is) the rest is up to you!
We will start the fun at 6pm, but come early to enjoy the beautiful views of SF from the back deck - doors open at 5:30pm. We need to solve these mysteries of love and lust by 7:30. Space is limited, so purchase your tickets quickly. This event is 21+.
When & Where
Rock Wall Wine Company
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!
