Jack London Square will celebrate the best of the Northern California wine scene with Wine Walk on the Waterfront on Saturday, September 22 from 4 to 8 p.m. Due to the popularity of its daytime Spring Art & Wine Festival, Jack London Square has created a new event that invites attendees to enjoy tastings from more than 25 wineries during a beautiful fall evening in the square.

 

Not only will attendees be able to try some of Northern California’s best wines, they’ll also have the opportunity to sample all that Jack London Square has to offer with a passport that provides specially-priced menu items and exclusive offers at participating restaurants and retail stores. There will also be live entertainment throughout the evening, including a performance on the Luminescent Grand, the world’s first synesthesia piano, which will light up the Broadway Stage.

 

Participating wineries include Boa Ventura de Caires Winery, Dashe Cel-lars, Delicato Family Vineyards, Denovo Wines, Enat Winery, Fenestra Winery, Garré Vineyard & Winery, Las Positas Vineyards, Murrieta’s Well, Reynolds Family Winery, Rockwall Winery, Rosenblum Cellars, Schug Carneros Estate Winery, Wachira Wines, Wente Vineyards and more!

 

This event is also a fabulous opportunity for attendees to try the new restaurants that have opened on the waterfront this past summer. These new dining destinations include Belcampo, the old-fashioned butchery and restaurant; Dyafa, featuring Arabic cuisine from James Beard semifinalist and La Cocina graduate Reem Assil of Reem’s California, in partnership with Daniel Patterson’s Alta Group; and the Oakland location of the Michelin-recognized Farmhouse Kitchen Thai Cuisine, serving traditional Thai cuisine in a welcoming and lively atmosphere.

 

Located at the heart of the Urban Wine Trail, Jack London Square is an ideal location to eat, shop and play after swirling and sipping your way through local wineries. Additional events in September visitors can look forward to include Taste of Oakland, a celebration of the Bay Area’s unique culture of independent and iconic musicians, culinary talents, and innovation in technology, taking place Saturday, September 1; and Eat Real Festival, Oakland’s premiere craft food and beverage celebration, returning for its 10th year September 14 to 16.
