Rock Wall Wine Company, one of the East Bay’s most prolific wineries, has organized a Wine Maker’s dinner featuring the culinary stylings of one of Guest Chef’s most popular chefs. Chef Paul Skrentny is back and he’s bringing a unique menu inspired by the newest offerings at Rock Wall Wine Company. For these two weeks, Chef Skrentny is teaming up with Rock Wall and offering diners a delicious 6-course prix fixe menu with, or without, wine pairings. Come on out and support a great local wine company, local chef, and local restaurant.
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 father/daughter winemaking team Kent and 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 to a 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 was proud to unveil its 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. 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!
