Oakland’s Urban Wine Trail

Harvest season is August through October in Northern California’s wine country, but in Oakland, wine season is year-round. Recently, Visit Oakland put together a list of transit-friendly wineries and tasting rooms and aptly named the initiative the Oakland Urban Wine Trail. Having these tasting rooms and urban wineries accessible to city dwellers that might not get the chance to spend the day in wine country is a win-win idea: exposure for them and easy access wine for us.
