We had a wonderful tour and tasting at Rock Wall Winery this last Sunday, that also included lunch on their deck overlooking San Francisco.
One can’t really go wrong when sitting out in the sun under an umbrella and gazing upon that beautiful City by the Bay, enjoying a glass of wine and a light lunch.
Rock Wall is a cooperative made up of eight wineries.
The winery is situated in Alameda, housed in a converted airplane hangar, that is located on what was once a Naval Air Base, decommissioned in 1997.
We tasted some fabulous chardonnay, cabernet, petite sirah, viognier, and sauvignon blanc.
In addition to the Rock Wall 2009 chardonnay that we enjoyed with lunch, and the Viva La Blanc, we loved the Carica wines that were show cased on Sunday, especially the Kick Ranch Petite Sirah 2008.
Rock Wall is situated in a wonderful location and easily accessible from all points of the Bay Area.
