Rosenblum Cellars

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Broad Brush, your weekly, two-sentence news review. Here are your headlines for the week.

Fans of Rosenblum Cellars’ prized zinfandels and Rhone varietals will only be able to sample the winery’s 50-plus wines “next to the docks in Alameda” for a few more months.

Rosenblum’s owners announced Monday that when the lease on their current East Bay visitors center on Main Street expires in June, they’ll be vacating their Island home of 27 years for Oakland’s Jack London Square.

A sudden (albeit temporary) lull in the opening of new eating establishments in town prompted me to focus this month on our local wineries. What better way than by attending the yearly East Bay Vintners Alliance event Passport to Urban Wine Country?
