R&B Cellars makes wine the way they perform their jazz – with passion, fun and adventure, with an eye to detail and the belief that wine should be enjoyed by all. The result is superb wine with an approachable price tag. A husband and wife team, Barbara and Kevin Brown, both lifetime musicians, believe that the ultimate pairing is wine & music. They perform at wine tasting events wherever they go, delighting people with their wines and their music. Kevin plays piano, Barbara sings.

Rock Wall Wine Company

The etymology of our name: Rock Wall Wine Company is located on the former Alameda Naval Air Base which was decommissioned in 1997 and turned over to the community and is slowly being converted to civilian use. The name Rock Wall refers to the defensive perimeter wall built during WWII in the San Francisco Bay to protect the base from Japanese air to sea torpedoes. All military installations on the west coast created similar protective barriers. This wall is visible from our facility as well as elsewhere on the base. The wall has also been a popular fishing location for local anglers looking for striped bass.

The Rock Wall Wine Company represents a new chapter in the East Bay winemaking scene. Founded and operated by a small group of wine industry veterans, including consulting winemaker Kent Rosenblum and his daughter Shauna Rosenblum, the winery offers wine lovers one of the most unique experiences in the wine world.

The Rock Wall Wine Company is founded on the philosophy of the right grape in the right place and are the result of many long-term relationships with acclaimed vineyards. Grapes are sourced from all over California which creates a diverse winemaking environment, complete with different grape varieties, styles and regional flavor profiles.

Ideally situated in Alameda, California, the winery boasts spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, and more importantly its locale allows the winemaking team to be regionally centralized – ensuring that whether Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, Zinfandel from Sonoma County, Petite Sirah from Contra Costa County or Chardonnay from the Santa Lucia Highlands, the winemaking team is able to handle the fruit soon after it is picked.

Housed in a converted 40,000 square-foot airplane hangar the winery 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.

A unique concept, Rock Wall Wine Company is, in essence, an urban winery that services the East Bay. Through the wine center, the Rock Wall owners look forward to continuing the legacy of urban winemaking as well as providing an environment whereby making, tasting and learning about wine is fun!

Rosenblum Cellars.

At Rosenblum, we’re famous for being all about Zinfandel – Old Vine Zin, High Altitude Zin, Single Vineyard Zin, BIG Attitude Zin. We love Zinfandel so much, we make over 20 different types. Rosenblum Cellars has some of the highest rated, most-awarded Zins from California’s most highly regarded vineyards. Not just Napa and Sonoma, but all over the state. And while we are a founding member of the Zinfandel Advocates & Producers group (ZAP!), we do make other amazing wines, including Rhône-style red wines like Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, as well as Rhône-style white wines and dessert wines. We’re like a collection of 30 small wineries rolled into one large hangar in Alameda, California.

Our vineyard owners aren’t just our growers; they’re our friends and partners in creating more than 50 different wines each year, from several California appellations. People like Marshall Harris in Alexander Valley and Richard Sauret in Paso Robles have a profound impact on the uniqueness and quality of our wines. Each bottle of Rosenblum wine is a celebration of these relationships.

For over three decades, Rosenblum has sought out only California’s best terroirs for its lineup of outstanding signature Zinfandels. From single-vineyards in Sonoma and Alexander Valley to strictly selected regional blends, Rosenblum has made more than 50 Zinfandels earning 90 or more points from Wine Spectator. It’s an eye-opening track record for Zin lovers, but at Rosenblum, guided by commitment and craft, delivering sumptuous wines is just business as usual.
