Grape Growing History and the City Coming Together

The vibrant Zinfandel wine country of the Bay Area is a contrast of two dynamic, yet distinct stories that come together in their commitment to Zinfandel. The history of Zinfandel grape growing in Contra Costa is a long and illustrious one that today is once again taking winemaking by storm. And, the settlers of the “urban wine scene” in Oakland and Alameda in the East Bay have been bringing high-quality Zinfandel to their city neighborhoods, establishing wineries that resonate with today’s consumers. Check out this video to discover their stories!
