Grab your friends for an outdoor celebration of East Bay wineries and restaurants at the Urban Wine Xperience on August 2nd between 1 pm and 5 pm. This is a rare opportunity to explore over 20 urban wineries and over 20 restaurants and food purveyors all together in one location, accompanied by the sounds of Phantom City, an acoustic Bay Area rock band. The festivities will take place at the Jack London Square Ferry Lawn (98 Broadway Street, Oakland).
The East Bay Urban Wineries pouring that day will be pouring white, rosé, red and dessert wines, so there is bound to be something perfect for your personal tastes. Participating wineries include Aubin Cellars, Campovida, Carica Wines, Cerruti Cellars, Chouinard Vineyard and Winery, Dashe Cellars, Eno Wines, Mead Kitchen, Periscope Cellars, R & B Cellars, Rock Wall Wine Company, Stage Left Cellars, Two Mile Wines and Urban Legend Cellars.
Tickets for the Urban Wine Xperience are $45.00 per person in advance (or $35 if you are a wine club member with an East Bay Vintners Association winery) and can be purchased here. Designated Driver tickets (admission, food and music only) are only $15. Tickets may also be purchased at the event, but you should just take care of that now because the at-the-door price will be $60 per person.
To go along with your wine, local eateries will be offering delicious bites to pair with the EBVA’s wine portfolio. Some of the restaurants and food trucks that will be at the Xperience are alaMar, Café Jolie, Centouno, Chicha, Chop Bar, Kincaids, Lungomare, Mockingbird, Nido, Scolari’s, Tay Ho, Tribune Tavern and Venga Paella.
So text your friends, coordinate transportation, and then buy your tickets online so you don’t miss this chance to enjoy the sunshine, dance to live music and celebrate the East Bay’s food and wine scene all in the same place.

Producing wine locally in former factories, tanneries and even an airline hangar, these pioneering urban winemakers offer an extraordinary range of varietals from the most popular to the exotic at every price point.
