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. Rock Wall was established in 2008 by Kent Rosenblum (The King of Zin) and his daughter, winemaker Shauna Rosenblum. Shauna 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 new wine drinkers as well as seasoned wine enthusiasts looking for a new experience.
The beautiful Rock Wall tasting room is next to the original hangar. It welcomes 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 geodesic dome. Food from Scolari's at the Point is available during tasting room hours.
Ideally situated in Alameda, California, the winery boasts spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, and more importantly its centralized locale allows the production team to be able to handle the fruit soon after it is picked. Housed in a converted 40,000 square-foot airplane hangar, Rock Wall 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 hangar has been retrofitted with state-of-the-art winemaking equipment and has a fully operational production facility and barrel room.
The Rock Wall Wine Company strives to provide premium wine without pretense. Continuing the legacy of urban winemaking while creating an environment where making, tasting and learning about wine is fun and welcoming to all wine lovers!
The tasting room is open Monday-Friday 11:30-8:00pm and Saturday and Sunday 11:30-6:00pm. Last pour is 30 minutes before close. For more information on the Rock Wall Wine Company please visit www.rockwallwines.com.
