  • Jc Cellars
    Owner Jeff Cohn of JC Cellars has always been interested in the world of wine, but it wasn't until he tasted a Chateauneuf-du-Pape that the cosmos unfurled before him. "To go from tasting only single varietals to a blend really opened my eyes," he wrote in his bio. He started crafting his own wines and tinkering with production methods, experimenting with different yeast strains. Cohn eventually produced the 2003 Rhodes Vineyard Zinfandel, which was named number three on Wine Spectator's Top 100 List—the first time a California Zinfandel had even been in the top 10. Now, Cohn curates a roster of 21 vintages based on Rhone grape varietals at JC Cellars. The wines are the product of both his own production techniques and time-tested French methods. Visitors to the cellars can gaze upon the aging barrels during tastings led by seasoned wine educators, before taking a bottle home to christen a life-size replica of the Millennium Falcon.

  • Urban Legends Cellars
    Five Myths Dispelled at Urban Legends Cellars Urban Legends Cellars operate in a pretty unlikely location for a winery: a former industrial building that sits right on the water. The Oakland winemakers work far from arable soil, but that doesn’t deter them. In fact, it spurs them on in their mission to dispel some of the myths and legends about what good wine is, and where it comes from. Below are five common fallacies about winemaking that the vintners Urban Legends are shattering: Wine must be made next to the vine its grapes grow on. While there’s something to be said for freshness, local soil can be as limiting as it is liberating. Grapes that grow well in one place may not thrive in another, and vice versa. Working outside the bounds of wine country, Urban Cellars’ team gets their grapes wherever they please, and always from a region that produces particularly fine specimens. Winemakers should focus on a single grape. It’s true that, given different seasons, soils, and fermentation methods, a single grape can produce a myriad of complex, nuanced flavors. This explains why many winemakers prefer to take a limited focus. That being said, it’s untrue that a broad approach that ropes in multiple grapes diminishes the quality of the winery’s final products. Urban Legends’ producers prove that, working with a variety of grapes seasonally to produce a wide and diverse range of wines that all taste good. Innovation has no place amongst fine wines. As far as being a wine-producing nation, America is a youngster. That may explain why some U.S. winemakers aren’t as tied to tradition as their European or Spanish counterparts are. That’s certainly the case for the folks at Urban Legends Cellars, who are constantly experimenting. By placing flavor above history, they’re able to produce some truly unusual and exciting wines. A rose can’t be complex. Oft reviled and dismissed, rose has made quite the comeback in recent years, going from a sickly-sweet soda pop equivalent to something at once dry and refreshing. Part and parcel of this revolution is Urban Legends Cellars’ Rosata di Barbera. It pays homage to its fruity forebears with a sweet nose, but boasts a smooth body with a citristy finish that doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Rieslings must be sweet. Another varietal known for its sweetness, Rieslings also get a bad rep. The team at Urban Legends seeks to change that, constantly sampling their Rieslings throughout fermentation to catch it at the exact moment when sweetness and acidity come into perfect balance. When they taste what they’re looking for, they immediately chill the whole batch, putting a halt to the fermentation process. The whole operation has to move pretty quickly, and requires confident, experienced hands and palates to pull off.

  • Dashe Cellars
    After working at a slew of vineyards and wineries, husband-and-wife team Michael and Anne Dashe struck out on their own, building Dashe Cellars on a foundation of more than 40 years of combined experience. Specializing in single-vineyard zinfandels—including the 2011 Todd Brothers Ranch Old Vines Zinfandel, a wine crafted from grapes grown on 50-year-old vines—they use traditional and natural winemaking techniques. Small-lot fermentation and the application of indigenous yeasts, as well as little to no filtration, result in wines that truly reflect their soil, climate, and regional characteristics, such as indecipherable accents. The Oakland tasting room offers visitors the chance to taste the winery's catalog, allowing them to sip samples of current releases and even purchase bottles on site.
