David talks with Kim Bardakian, Director of PR and Community Relations for the City of Oakland, about the renaissance of Oakland and their fascinating and unexpected Oakland Urban Wine Trail. A trip to Oakland isn’t complete without tasting a little local flavor. Like everything else in Oakland, the wine scene is a little different. Oakland’s urban wineries are housed in renovated warehouse spaces, but the wine quality is second to none. Being so close to California wine country doesn’t hurt either, grapes are sourced from all over the state. Head out on Oakland’s Urban Wine Trail, stopping along the way to shop, eat, and explore all that Oakland has to offer.
The trail is walkable, and easily accessible by ferry, BART, Oakland’s free Broadway shuttle and Amtrak. Find out more at http://www.visitoakland.org/things-to-do/oakland-urban-wine-trail/
