3rd Annual “Passport to the East Bay Wine Trail”

Saturday April 10, 2010 from 12:00pm to 5:00pm 

Presented by the East Bay Vintner’s Alliance (EBVA), this year’s “Passport to the East Bay Wine Trail” promises to enlighten the senses as nineteen urban wineries- many that are not usually open to the public- will pour their wares at seven distinct tasting rooms located in Emeryville, Oakland and Alameda.  

This year’s participating wineries include Adams Point, Andrew Lane, Aubin Cellars, Blacksmith Cellars, Ceruitti Cellars, Dashe Cellars, Eno Wines, Irish Monkey, JC Cellars, Periscope Cellars, Prospect 772, R&B Cellars, Rock Wall Wine Company, Rosenblum Cellars, Stage Left Cellars, Tayerle Wines, Two Mile, Urban Legend Cellars, and Urbano Cellars.

Tickets can be purchased for $30.00 in advance through www.eastbayvintners.com, or for $45.00 at the door on April 10, 2010. ($10 for designated drivers.) 

Each ticket purchased ensures a wristband, which guarantees free access to each of the seven tasting rooms from 12:00pm to 5:00pm, an assortment of appetizers, and also a souvenir Reidel glass. 

Come one, come all and experience the undiscovered urban Napa right in your own back yard with the East Bay Vintner’s Alliance.

Visit the EBVA’s website for more details on this event.

 

I just found this on YELP, thought I would share. A few of my favorite Oaktown restaurants are on the list.
