Wouldn’t it be nice to taste really good wine locally without having to drive all the way to wine country? I’ve got the perfect solution.
A diamond in the rough, Rock Wall winery is located less than half an hour from San Francisco in the former Naval Air Station in my super cute hometown of Alameda. Housed in a converted 40,000 square foot airplane hangar, the winery 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.
The tasting room includes plenty of outdoor space, a dome where you can lounge, and a food truck! Sip great wine and enjoy the view of the San Francisco skyline.
On Saturday June 15 from 1-5 pm, the company is hosting the Rock Wall Art and Wine Experience—an event featuring barrel samples, live music and performance art, and food trucks. The event will take place in their barrel room which is a 25,000 square foot hangar overlooking the Bay.
