Friday Fishwrap
East Bay Vintners Passport Saturday

By Charles Olken

This is no joke. I really will be out and about on Saturday tasting the wines created by the Urban wineries of the East Bay. Twenty-two of them have banded together this weekend to pour their wines in an assortment of venues in Oakland and Alameda, and they range in size and recognition from the Rosenblum Cellars to new places whose wines are new to me such as Stomping Girl Winery and Stage Left Cellars.

The twenty-two wineries will band together at six locations, some of which are already rightfully well-known like the joint location of JC Cellars and Dashe Cellars. The attractive facility will also host Aubin, Eno, Stage Left & Tayerle. And then there is Periscope Cellars showing at the home of the Linden Street Brewery, which I have not yet tried, but will have by Saturday evening.
