On August 6th the East Bay Vintner’s Alliance (EBVA) hosted its 6th annual “Urban Wine Xperience,” a celebration of the urban wine scene in the East Bay. Over 20 urban wineries from the EBVA poured a phenomenal array of white, roses, reds and dessert wines for the public at the Jack London Pavilion in Oakland, CA. Local eateries and food purveyors teamed up with each winery and created delicious bites that paired beautifully with the EBVA’s wine portfolio. Guests enjoyed the sunshine and danced to live music on the sun-drenched deck as they celebrated the urban wine scene and all things local!
The participating EBVA wineries included: Adams Point WInery, Andrew Lane Wines, Aubin Cellars, Blacksmith Cellars, Carica Wines, Cerruti Cellars, Dashe Cellars, Ehrenberg Cellars, Eno Wines, Irish Monkey Cellars, JC Cellars, JRE Wines, Periscope Cellars, Prospect 722, R&B Cellars, Rock Wall Wine Company, Rosenblum Cellars, Stomping Girl Wines, Tayerle Wines, Urban Legend Cellars and Urbano Cellars.
The scrumptious bites we enjoyed included some of the following local food purveyors and eateries: Angela’s Bistro, Bacanova, Bellanico, Brown Sugar Kitchen, Chop Bar, Fra’ Mani, Kincaids, La Farine, Miss Pearl’s Jam House, North Main BBQ, Otaez, Pappo, Paradiso, Pican, Wood Tavern, Zut, and many more!
