After many years in Alameda, R&B will be moving to a new home in the East Bay – to the Port of Richmond in the quaint town of Point Richmond. The building, called “The Rigger’s Loft”, is part of the historic Kaiser Shipyard and is directly next to the water with a sweeping 270° of the bay – one of the most stunning bay views in the whole East Bay. There are windows everywhere in their new winery, letting in lots of natural light.
Their plans for the tasting room will take full advantage of these remarkable views, with a 70 foot tasting bar along the windows looking out across the bay, with additional seating outside on a tasting deck, and with lots of standing room around the bar area. The water is literally a stone’s throw away; the view is breathtaking. The winery will be a perfect place to host events too.
The Port of Richmond is up and over the hill from the town of Point Richmond – a vibrant town within the greater City of Richmond, on the bay side of the freeway. Point Richmond is an affluent community and has several nice galleries and restaurants, including the famed Hotel Mac Restaurant. The 500-mile long Bay Trail twists through the town, along the waterfront, and right by our new winery! The winery will be easy to get to – just 5 minutes and a straight shot off I-580.
They are projecting to be up and running sometime mid-winter 2015.
