Sorry no animals are allowed at this event.
The Rock Hound is the continuation of a lifelong mission by the Rosenblum family to help animals in need. These wines are dedicated to Shauna's rescue dog, Sunny. When she adopted him six years ago he had been abused, was severely malnourished in addition to being nearly blind. Today he is the one of the sweetest most loving dogs you will ever meet. He enjoys being adored, sun bathing (hence the name), snorting like a pig and snoring louder than a grown person! If he is feeling particularly saucy he will let out his signature WaRooooo!
Rock Hound White (Pinot Grigio) $14: Tropical aromas of pineapple, Asian pear, and Fuji apple jump from the glass, followed by a delicate mango, orange blossom and citrus finish!
Rock Hound Red (70% Sirah, 30% Petite Sirah $14): Caramel cream, black pepper, mint chocolate and cherry aromas howl from the glass, followed by flavors of blueberry, bacon, black tea, cherry and white pepper!
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! The winery was established in 2008 by a small group of wine industry veterans, including consulting winemaker Kent Rosenblum, daughter and winemaker Shauna Rosenblum. Shauna at just 29 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 is available in the tasting room
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!
