“ Founded in 1978 in a dockyard winery in Alameda, Rosenblum Cellars has been a hit with Zinfandel lovers for more than 25 years.”
To the delight of Zinfandel lovers in northern Sonoma wine country, Rosenblum Cellars has returned and is enjoying a warm, wonderful homecoming in the charming town of Healdsburg. Known far and wide for fabulous Zinfandel, the popular winery opened a dynamic tasting room late last year just off the town’s main square. More than a tasting room, it is better described as a chic and inviting lounge where locals, visitors, and wine club members can experience great wines and settle in for awhile. Besides the front tasting room, there’s a space for events and education, an exclusive Club and Locals Lounge, plus an outdoor patio with comfortable sofas for sunny days and cozy evenings.
Now, Zinfandel lovers in San Francisco’s urban East Bay area are delighted too. As of July, Rosenblum’s East Bay Visitors Center relocated to Jack London Square on the Oakland waterfront. This prime location is close to public transportation, including the Ferry and BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), along with countless restaurants and entertainment options. The new tasting room has expanded its wine-by-the-glass program, so guests can stop in between activities and linger in the airy, intimate setting as long as they like.
Founded in 1978 in a dockyard winery in Alameda, Rosenblum Cellars has been a hit with Zinfandel lovers for more than 25 years. It has evolved into one of California’s top producers of Zinfandel and Rhône-style wines. Each vintage boasts more than 20 different types of Zinfandel, including some of the highest rated, most-awarded Zinfandels from California’s most highly regarded vineyards. From single vineyards in Sonoma and Alexander Valley to strictly selected regional blends, Rosenblum has made more than 50 Zinfandels earning 90 or more points from Wine Spectator. The portfolio also includes Syrah, Grenache, Roussanne, Viognier, Marsanne, and Petite Sirah, creating endless possibilities for discovering Rosenblum Cellars wines in both of its two new tasting rooms.
