Winemakers Stew Epstein and Jeffrey Fiegel have an affinity for Spanish grapes and are committed to making highly acclaimed, delicious wine from their Oakland facility without the pretention normally associated with wines of this caliber. They’re currently pouring their first Pinot, a 2014, and a 2016 Tempranillo Nuevo, in addition to their Santa Ynez Valley Rio Blanco and Dry Riesling. Tasting fees vary; check their website. Be prepared to learn a lot from these winemakers, who are normally on hand to pour and share information. This modern space is near Jack London Square restaurants.
