Rock Wall Closes its Doors

Rock Wall Wine Company held its last day of on-site service on Sunday, Feb. 27, after 14 years.

Company owner and winemaker Shauna Rosenblum announced the closing of the Tasting Room Tarmac on the company’s website last month.

“We are sad to announce that the rising costs of doing business in the Bay Area compounded by facilities issues and the lasting financial implications of COVID closures have created an untenable situation for us to continue to operate,” wrote Shauna. “Thank you for being a part of the Rock Wall Community, we truly appreciate you.”

Rock Wall Wine Company was founded in 2008 by Shauna and her father, fellow winemaker Kent Rosenblum. The winery and its tasting room were a popular destination on Spirits Alley at Alameda Point. The area used to be a part of the former Alameda Naval Air Base.

“The Rock Wall team and I are all grieving the loss of this place that we built and loved so deeply. Change is always hard, and this is the end of an era. My heart is so full of gratitude for the incredible time we have spent together at the winery,” wrote Shauna. “Thank you for the most incredible 14 years.”

Over the years, Rock Wall Wine Company garnered several accolades, including high scores from Wine Spectator for its zinfandel and blends.

Rock Wall Wine will continue to offer patrons the option to purchase wine through their Drive Thru or ship to their homes until June 5th. The Drive Thru schedule will be updated monthly. To view the schedule, visit www.rockwallwines.com/drive-thru-information.
